I was sewing along…

and then there was a metallic clunk.  So now the featherweight has had a through cleaning, delinting (I had thread wound in around the back of the bobbin hooks so had to take some bits apart to get at it.  I had not planned for that interruption but I also hadn’t cleaned it in a while so it was needed.   But I’ve did get one more house in the woods done

  This one is a little different than the others since when I got the bottom section done, I discovered that somehow a stray rotary cutter had sliced into one fabric piece — something I didn’t notice when cutting out the patches.  So the lower window is smaller and there’s house frame on each side of the door.  Quick fix.    I may make another like that.

So I’ve got pieces cut for three more in various stages of assembly and now that the sewing machine is humming along again I can get busy on those.  Two of the houses are purple with red doors — I think the Red Hatters must live in those. 🙂

Belated On the Needles Friday

Yes I know it’s Saturday but I was too lazy last night to get the camera and take a photo!. 🙂

 Here’s a no real great photo of my second sock.  It’s getting there but then you can make a lot of progress if you stay up to oh say 4:30 a.m. knitting. LOL  That’s what I did last night.

Hopefully this one will be finished today and I can go back and take out the toe of the other sock since I made the first sock a bit shorter than I really wanted.

Check out what everyone else has on their needles over at Judy’s.
