I got my "Baby" back!

Well I finally got my Baby (Lock that is) back yesterday. I will spare you all the details of the pain it caused me, but now all is forgotten. So now you ask why the picture of pillows? Good question, but I have an answer! I decided since I didn't know a time frame on the return of my machine, I would make some new pillows for our couch. The ones we had were beyond disgusting so I figured that would be a safe and productive project to do with my sewing machine. I had all the fabrics in my stash (they were all actually in the scrap box from other miscellaneous projects) so it was just the cost of four pillow forms which were 50% off this week at Joann's. So for less than $20 and a few hours (if that) of work, my couch is all spiffed up!

I have several things cut out for the boys and think that will be my next project. While I really want to work on stuff for me (haven't I been saying that forever now???), Andy needs new pj's and some long sleeved t-shirts and Jack is in need of a few shirts too. They are all cut out already so they should be pretty fast projects, unless I get side tracked by a Sudoku (my latest obsession ~ they are so addicting!).

Yay! I'm glad you got your machine back! Great new pillows that you've created in the mean time.

BTW, I love Sudoku too!

Glad that you got your "baby" back. It's hard to sew when your favorite machine is in the shop. The pillows look great. You'll be able to "whip up" your children's clothing in no time.

If you do home dec sewing, that is the only justification you need to own a serger!

(when I think of sewing all the curtains that I've made in my day on a regular machine.....)
