This day began so badly. Before going off to work, I thought if I could just get some Hummingbirds sewn, then I could stuff them at lunch and finish off by hand this evening. Except when I started to sew on the machine the detail work, I noticed, the machine, never used from my Mom, that I took to have tuned up, was not sewing the decorative stitches accurately. Oh, I could just scream. This is the third machine in one year that something has happened to.
So off to the repair shop I took it. As the day went on, I didn't get that phone call from the repair man to tell me whether he could fix it or not. Being a computer problem, he was not sure he could fix it... He's more like a fixit gear fixit it guy.
When he called and told me he got it all timed up. I screamed out in joy. Thank goodness. Just when I had started adjusting to it,,, I hated to have to maybe lose it.
Whew, close call.
Back to hummingbirds. Got one ready to stuff and detail. My brother called, he wants me to make a schnauzer for his girlfriends Mom's birthday. I love challenges. In fact, I had the perfect wool sweater to cut up to make it. It will actually looked like a perfectly shaved schnauzer. Just need to look for fur to make his curly face and undercoat.
Sewed all the pieces, now the hand work. Hopefully can finish by tomorrow. Would love to have in the mail to make it by her birthday on Saturday.
