It snowed here today, rained, then snowed, then rained.....you get the idea.
It was cold and damp, and I still feel chilled.
But the harder it snowed, the more frantically the birds jockeyed for position at the feeder.
This guy looks like he is saying, " Do you expect me to fly in this stuff?"
This one looks like a 'bitch session' is in progress.
Can't you just hear it??? blah, blah, blah, blah blah.....
"I'm so embarrassed."
Yes, they were a little nuts at the feeder.
We were staying warm, and busy, in the studio.
The sewing machine is all together, with the help of a friend. I would have slashed my wrists half way through it. Seriously. We had to call the place in Montreal where I bought it, a few times. They were incredibly helpful, and supportive, which is why I bought the machine from them.
After I watched the threading video MORE THAN ONCE, I was able to thread it, and get the bobbin wound. Then I tried it out. Hesitantly.
I admit it. I was scared, worried that I would hate it like the first one I bought, or that I wouldn't be able to get it running.
All so not true. I not only got it going, I tried it out on a couple of things and it sews beautifully.
Usually when I sew tote bags together, I have a difficult time sewing the sides up. The gussets are so impossible, I sew them by hand.
I had an unfinished tote, so I decided to give it a try. This machine sewed through the corners like they were made of jello.
I have been known to make occasional crappy decisions. Thank God this wasn't one of them.
Now I can't wait to make up a whole new batch of totes. They're going to be a breeze.
I feel like a kid at Christmas.
