So much for my goal of completing one garment per week, huh? Things have been hectic this month and my sewing has gone nowhere fast. I’m still working on the same two projects, eek! I decided yesterday that I’d start getting up even earlier than I already do and hit the treadmill in the morning vs. running outdoors after work. I do love getting outside in the evening but this way I get some sewing time instead. I did it this morning and found the treadmill as incredibly boring as always but I will try to stick with it.
And I almost forgot – I have a new baby!
This is a Consew 105 straight-stitch. I played with her for about 45 minutes yesterday and am in love. Eventually, she will get a paint job but she’s in pretty good shape and sews great.
Notice the extra-large space in the arm – I was feeling a bit cramped when working on large projects on the Singer 20U. By now you are wondering just how many machines this crazy sewer needs, aren’t you? Well, probably just one more – a cylinder-arm machine. And a friend of mine just happens to have a lead on a Singer 17 class… After that, I may have to call it quits.
UPDATE: Well, since Diane asked, I had to take a count. Eighteen. Half of them are industrials. Huh, more than I thought. I thought I was at 15 but then I was always bad at math – unless it was in 5/8″ increments.
