there's been a flu bug, followed by a sickness bug, followed by a different stomach bug....Little Rocket Girl's body clock has gone so haywire that she's frequently waking at 4am and not returning to sleep until 10 or 11am. Some days with the older kids in school I have crawled back to bed and slept with her....consequently there's been no blogging time and not much blog reading. Now it is holiday time so I am hoping to crack this 4am waking. It's a killer.
Anyways, there's been some sewing reorganisation. I went out and bought new needles for my machine...I found a local independent sewing machine engineer who serviced my machine for half the price of the services at the nearest sewing machine shop! Plus he collected it and brought it home for me. This was a fantastic service as I was stuck at home with ill kids. So, now my machine is running smoothly, especially, since I read the section on thread tension in my handbook,there has been some sewing...using this "subtle animal print" jersey from Minerva Crafts sale section,
I made a second Ottobre tunic, the first one is here
I have been wearing it almost daily. It is warm and I just loves it. I am ducking my head to avoid showing the horror of my eye bags after the 4am wake ups.
