My parents bought him for me for my 21st birthday, aeons ago. I had such wonderful plans for projects we would do together, the clothes I would create, the cushions and curtains I would make etc etc. But it wasn't to be. We took an instant dislike to each other and it's been War ever since!
I know there are a lot of wonderful sewers out there who never have problems, but 'tension' is what causes me the most aggravation - it's either too tight or too loose....I can never get it right. I usually give up after wasting half a reel of thread, and resort to hand-stitching, which takes soooo much longer but gets the job done.
Anyway, I promised my elder daughter that I would use her spare material to make some cushions for her new flat. So out came Troy and.........the same old story. He flatly refused to sew a decent stitch, I twiddled the tension knob back and forth, cursed the stupid machine and...........eventually........ produced these.
Nothing special to you gifted sewers out there. Just two cushions: black one side, cream the other.
But to me it was a small Victory!
I need to remember that 'It’s not who you are that holds you back, It’s who you think you are not.'
