The day we all dread......sewing machine failure.....has arrived. The problem with needing a repair around here is distance....the closest repair guy for my machine is 3 hrs. round trip away. AND.....a long wait...... So my activities will be geared toward handwork till I get this figured out.
I've begun embellishing with some simple chicken hen embroidery type stitching in the green section. Followed by a row of raised seed beads around the stars.
The 'perfect' color beads in my stash are fairly uneven in size so this task is a tad frustrating as I need to resort the beads I pick up, trying to find uniformity which allows the rows of beads to sit better.
We are on our 2nd day of non-stop snow so since getting out of the house isn't happening today....I should be able to make nice progress....stay tuned.
