New to me Bernina - and stash!

Threaded View
A little while ago I was given a Bernina 1005!  It's for use with the
kids, and other projects.  I do love these solid Berninas...  This one
needed a new foot control (usual failure if and when they go - the Slow
setting was bust!).  Now I have a new foot control and am ready to play.

Oh, the agony - what do I make?  Do I start a whole new project?  Do I
work on my jacket I cut out yonks ago but never made up because the mad
customer projects took over the world?  Do I complete something part done?

ARGH!  HERLP!

I'm tempted by the jacket...  New project, but already cut out and the
fusible bits done, so ready to roll...  And virtuous as it's a stash bit
of fabric!

Or I could do the bits of James's next pair for zippy off trousers that
don't get serged...  Another stash-using project, this - though I did
have to buy the leg zips!

Or I could clear the decks and cut out a period costume piece from the
linen I dyed bitter chocolate brown...

Or I could wait a few days in increasing frustration until my new pile
of fabric arrives and make something out of that.  I was VERY naughty...
  I needed to buy some denim for James to make jeans, so I ordered two
different types to give him a choice, and a few other bits fell into the
order...  There's 20m on the way!

Oops!  I think I fell off my fabric diet!

Uh oh.  Guess so.  ;)  S'ok.  I've been imbibing somewhat too.  lol  I have
some linen blends coming to make up into teacher outfits for me for the
early fall.  It stays warm enough for linen here till about mid-October
usually.  And I just got a package yesterday with thread for the
industrial, a new presser foot for the industrial and some glass head
pins.  ;)  It's good to be bad every now and again. ;)

I did!  It's about half done...  Need to fire up the serger to neaten a
few edges.

It arrived today!  I've been stroking it.

I bought a 3m length of 60" wide shirt fabric last week, in lilac...
Very soft and yummy.  2 a metre, so not bad, really.

The parcel that came today was:

3m of seriously strong Denim for James to make jeans out of...
3m of softer denim mix that will make me a really nice skirt.
3m pinky lilac linen & viscose mix...  Not quite the colour I wanted, so
I may dye this one!
3m of nearly black 'pewter' twill
3m lilac twill
3m heavy poly lilac crepe...  More of a dove grey, this one.  Very yummy
skirt weight.
5m grey cotton twill

Some will sit in the stash for a while, some will get made up almost
straight away.  All good stuff.
