So now that I can't knit or crochet for a while, what will I do next, I ask myself (not so politely I must be honest). Perfect opportunity to get started on my sewing. Thankfully the fabric for the gigantic curtains has yet to arrive and I can potter on at the smaller things that need doing. I chose a beautiful selection of fabrics from my stash to make some cushion covers. I cut out what shapes and patterns that I needed together with any trims that I had. All ironed and pinned and sat down to my sewing machine to get started and what do you think happened? The tension would not set on my machine. Believe me when I tell you that the air was nearly blue in the kitchen today with all the words that I screamed at the sewing machine. But no matter how much I tried the tension just would not set. Whether I turned it up or down, I still ended up with massive loops at the back and stitches not even catching at the front. Wish my Dad was still with us, he would have fixed it in a jiffy. Would any of you know how to fix this problem, before I fling it into the bogs of middle Ireland, preserved by nature to be discovered in a few thousand years as some ancient artifact.
I just don't know what is going on with the technology in this house. It's like an all out strike. First the internet, then my sewing machine and finally the kids xbox.
This has made me wonder if all this technology is really worth the effort.
Is there enough benefits to qualify all the work and costs that are involved when something goes wrong?
Were we lost before without it or did we just cope fine?
Is simplicity the answer?
But then again I wouldn't be able to follow all your lovely blogs.
I'm undecided! What do you think?
