I haven't been doing much sewing (the machine kind) of late.
Poor Basil (the machine), each and every time I would put my foot to the pedal he would emit a sound akin to an 'old school' steam engine busting it's chops to get up a hill " I think I can, I think I can, I think I can and then one day - he couldn't.
Neither forward or back would Basil go.
So after some consultation with some local ladies in the know I took him off to the fixer-uperer of the sewing machine kind.
And now he is back!
He runs smoothly, emitting only the sound that a sewing machine should make (this is so entirely foreign to me as Basil has sounded so poorly for so long I forgot what a sewing machine should sound like).
So, with a new one of these I can now see what I am doing .
And a new one of these...(check out the damage to the plate that 'someone' has caused)
I have been severely reprimanded by the sewing machine fixer-uperer's and advised not to push or pull when sewing.
Hmmmmmm could be something in that 'pearl of wisdom'.
Head over to Kirsty's to see who else has stuff to show and tell today.
Happy sewing to you.
