Did my machine do that? Does my machine do that??? I had to find out. I put my foot on the pedal and this wonderful low hum started, and the needle slowly stitched across the fabric. My mind started racing. What am I gonna make? What am I gonna make? I grabbed my Heather Ross book and started flicking through the pages. I have a lot of fabric but nothing more than a fat quarter of anything. Then I remembered the meter of Amy Butler fabric that I bought from the sale table a few weeks ago. Yes I know, Amy Butler on the sale table. My eyes fell upon the Sunday Dinner Hostess Apron.
I got started straight away! What a joy it is to sew on a machine that works! I still came across a few construction issues (for a rather simple pattern) Skyping my mum at 2am her time wasn't an option. I made a few "changes" to the pattern, let's call it creative license, and now I have my very own apron.
Oh dear. The jewellery construction will have to wait for another day. I have finally made something for me however. I feel like baking biscuits for the neighborhood!
