Ok, so when I say troubles, I mean setbacks really.
I got the machine out of its case, but as you can see from the pictures that follow it needs a really good clean and service before it can be used. Which is a huge shame because it looks like a real workhorse.
It is stunning don’t you agree? I can’t wait to have it all cleaned up and ready to use. I will however have to find a good sewing machine service centre first as unfortunately there are none in the town where I live.
I am still disappointed about Harry and Rosie not being finished, however I have yet another more pressing sewing problem. I have something special to make and finish in the next 24 hours. I can’t go into too much detail right now, but rest assured should I complete my mini mission in time I shall be singing from the rooftops before the bells tomorrow night!!
So, on that rather cryptic note, I leave you with some more pictures of the singer.
Hello! I do hope everyone had a lovely Christmas.
We had a lovely day and both Big and Little A were well and truly spoilt! However Harry and Rosie did not get to make their appearance due to more machine trouble.
However, my wonderful Dad has come to the rescue and I am now in possession of a pretty old singer which may just do the job perfectly – I shall however have to wit until later on today to find out!!
If I do get Harry and Rosie finished before Hogmanay, I promise you will be the first to know!!
So, here it is. The first glimpse of Harry!!! I am so excited – I can’t wait to see Big A’s face when he get’s him on Christmas morning!
Harry - well, almost!
All I have to do now is attach all the limbs and head to the body. I think I will sew Rosie up tonight and stuff her and sew on her face. Then tomorrow night I can sit in comfort on the sofa and attach all the limbs etc to the bodies in one go as they will need to be sewn on by hand.
Rosie all marked out
Rosie cut & pinned
I have decide to keep you all in suspenders though! Pictures of the finished Harry & Rosie will be posted on Boxing Day!!!!
