I love sewing

I really do. But I have a problem... my sewing machine has been broken for so long, I almost forget what he looks like. If you wonder why my sewing machine is a he, it's because he's a Brother.

The sewing machine had been having problems a year after I bought him, but I had always got it fixed at a local place. My parents went to Asuncion a few weeks ago, and my Mom (you're the greatest!) took my "brother" to a shop there and explained what the problems were. We are going to Asuncion next week for Brianna's check up and I hope that we'll be able to pick up the machine on the same trip.

I was cleaning my closet today and found some books and magazines that I had completly forgotton about. My Mom had found an old sewing magazine at a yard sale and wanted to throw it away later, but I saved it and love looking through it. I'm scanning some pages of it for you to enjoy as well. It's Simplicity's Spring 1967 issue. So it's 4 years older than I am:)

I'm still trying to decide what will be the first thing I'll sew when I have him back... I have two new Burda magazines to pick from.

Any suggestions?

Next week Monday we'll be going to Asuncion until Wednesday. Brianna has a check-up (electroensefalograma) on Tuesday morning and we'll visit the Expo and eat real fast food:) (Always a highlight when you live so far from McDonald's)

Have a good Tuesday! See ya!

  3. I'm sorry your sewing machine is broke! I wish I had one because I sure would use it!

    Yes I know what you mean about cleaning up after the pretzels! What a mess...but definitely worth it!
