An absolute disaster threatened my new positive sewing resolve this week. My lovely little machine, which has served me well for almost two years broke.
No matter how much I twiddled the dials and wiggled the knobs, the thread just kept snapping - right in the middle of sewing a new Beignet (blue cotton with a beige tartan lining, since you ask). I managed to work out that the tension was far too tight for some unknown reason so it's gone to be repaired.
Unfortunately, this means I'll be sewing-machineless for two weeks whilst it's repaired and serviced. This does mean that I've picked up my knitting needles once more, firstly for a quilt that I've been working on for about 3 years now, and secondly to make a sock for my brand spanking new iphone. And seeing as I've got nothing else to show you, here it is (the sock not the phone - I'm sure you seen one of those before):
I'm thinking of stockpiling these as potential last minute gifts. What do you think?
