Well I'm back from a very nice holiday in Germany - I'm over the jet lag and wanted to start on some new projects.
Only problem is my sewing machine doesn't want to play. At all.
It's not the machine itself - it's the transformer that it's plugged into. My sewing machine is 25 years old and UK-bought ... and for the moment I'm in Canada on North American voltage. It makes life complicated - not least because the step up/ down transformers don't appear to be particularly reliable. I now have to wait probably a week for a replacement to be shipped from the US and get past Canadian customs.
And it could take longer. (Yawn).
I have a project ready to go on my cutting table - a new bag pattern that requires possibly 2 or 3 hours more work to finish it. Plus several orders to fulfil.
It's so frustrating.
Add to that the fact that my granny shrug was progressing nicely - right up to the point where I realised I didn't have enough yarn. So that's been frogged - I'll make something else (smaller) with the yarn and look out for some different yarn for my shrug.
Talking of frogs - my friend's daughter and I made some lovely ones using Purl Bee's pattern and (completely relaxed as I was) I forgot to photograph them!!
Oh well - time to sit back and twiddle my thumbs for lack of anything better to do!
