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?
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
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!
