The one where the sewing machine stopped working

We’ve had a good bit of rain the past two weeks and during one of those days I thought I would teach Lorelai to use the sewing machine. At first she was not very excited about it, however after picking a project (a pillow), and picking out some lovely soft fabric, she soon had a bounce in her step.

We pinned the sides together and went over to learn about and prepare to use the machine and low and behold, the hand wheel decided that it wasn’t going to move 😒, turns out the bobbin case was loose and was causing issues. After a cleaning, fixing the bobbin casing, dropping a screw in the machine, and then retrieving the screw, and putting it back together, the machine started to work. Phew! So we threaded the machine and suddenly the top thread decided to not pick up the lower thread. 

Needless to say, I’m not in the mood to mess with it. We will try again when the weather is a bit cooler and isn’t making everyone agitated.

We’ve been busy (as always).

We’ve graduated from preschool

  
And enjoyed nature   

 

I created two of my very own crochet hat patterns, which I am finishing the final touches and will then share pictures!!

I also picked up my lovely crochet hook last weekend and decided it was time to start my first C2C blanket

 
It got addicting fast

  

And I am now on the decrease!  This will be a baby blanket for someone who is due in three short weeks! 

For all of you who have tornado warnings (we are currently under watch), please stay safe!! I have many friends in many different states experiencing tornado warnings this week.
Have a great night folks!!
