This is a picture of my sewing room I took the pictures without the flash so you can see just how dark the room is.
This is what it looks like with the flash on the camera.
I wish my room had this much light. I will search out a Ott-light floor lamp that will help a lot.
I have made up my mind to focus on the things that make me happy. I brought in the New Year the way I usually do. By myself in my sewing room.
I made a Scandi Mei Tai When I am working on a project I can forget about my surrounding and just work and dispite the darkness it was not a major problem. My problem involved broken needles. When sewing through the padding on the straps and waist tie I was sewing through 2 layers of duck cloth and 4 layers of fleece and my machine was not cooperating. So at times I had to pull the strap through while stitching which of course moved the needle and so 3 broken needles later I decided to just turn the wheel and sew it slowly once I was finally finished I had a beautiful blister.
Once I was done I was quite happy with the end result and decided to make at least 2 more. This was was a special request by Betty,and I am happy to have it complete.
I am will get the box from the post office tomorrow and get this in the mail. I am not sure about making more I done want to invest in needles of bandages for blisters.
Right now I am working on a straight skirt and shirt for me to wear next week. I am also searching for gray knit material to make a sweater dress.
This year should be filled with lots of completed projects!
