Is anybody else singing “sock-a monkey” to the tune of peter gabriel’s shock the monkey while they’re working on their sock monkey? My s.m. is kinda a plain jane at this point. I haven’t made it past stuffing yet. I’ve stuffed and unstuffed it 3 times now trying to get it unlumpy. I’ve also got my tie on one going. I like to have more than one project in progress at once so I can switch over to the other when one gets annoying.
Hey, by the way, I got my sewing machine fixed this week for… wait for it… f-r-e-e!! The nice sewing machine repair guy at the hancock fabrics diagnosed it’s disease* in 30 seconds flat, offered me some free advice and that was it. I think he may have had more to say but Oscar was screaming a bloody torrent through the store about being in the cart so I think he was, ok lady, go away.
Thanks to everyone who joined our group! (and thanks for ignoring the fact that I typo’d and said what to join our group) So many great pics are being uploaded. I finally figured out that you can rss the feed of a group so my b-lines has been keeping me informed and obsessively checking the computer is another thing I’ve got going on my multi-task list. Also on the list is checking out the loot from the garage sales this morning. I totally scored on a bunch of vintage kids books. I’ll upload pics soon. Back to my task task tasks…
* for those who are curious, the problem with the Bernina was that when the screw broke off that held the thread guide in place (did I mention that) it broke off the bit that would stop the needle from going up too far. so now I just have to eyeball where that would be, stop the needle there, tighten in place and I’m good to go!
