Really, what is the world coming to?
I have taken a bit of a break on the sewing marathon to give the sock a bit of attention, and I have turned the heel! It's a really interesting heel
I've done the gusset decreases & am now just at the foot knitting, so I'm hoping that moves pretty quickly. I have a whole second sock to do, after all......
Not that I've taken a break from sewing entirely. I decided to take a break from garment sewing, so I played around with my first attempt at applique.
I was pleased to find that there is actually something good about all those darn reply cards packed into every magazine,
they make decent pattern templates.
I don't know if I have used fusible webbing before, but I have quite a bit on-hand, so it's possible. I decided to use felt to start with, as I was thinking a looser zig-zag might look good
Speaking of which, after TWO calls to the dealership, they finally called me with an update: the part is IN and should have been shipped out to my dealer today, and I should have Jeeves home in about 2 weeks.....or about 9 weeks after taking him in for those of us who are counting. Still, I won't complain....or won't complain more than I already have. At least the part has finally been made/invented/whatever and there is an end in sight. Interestingly enough, when I sarcastically wrote that I was hoping to get Jeeves back by the end of August, I was actually being a bit optimistic. At least I should have him back in mid September at the latest. Hopefully working this time. I suppose I might have felt silly buying Bernie and then getting Jeeves back just a few days later.....but I think I could have gotten over it.......
