This week I’ve mostly been playing with my feet.  No, I did not regress to my infancy, nor take up pilates or yoga, I just broke out all the attachments that I’d got for my Featherweights/99k/201k and tried them out to see what they did.  Now that I’ve done that, I might actually revisit all of Big Brother’s attachments, as I rarely use any of them other than the standard, zipper, darning and buttonhole feet.  I know that I have ones for Big Brother that I also have for the Singers, but the Singers were better than the Brothers at explaining how to use them, as there were a couple of lightbulb moments with things I’d set aside in disgust previously, like the binding attachment.  I also finished the red patchwork thing from last week (that I can’t share just yet) and did a lot of planning of upcoming projects – index cards, notebooks and pencils, oh my!

This week it’s my gran’s birthday, so we’ll be partying like a 92 year old for the weekend :oD

Finishes This Week:

This is now finished and on its way to QN Towers:


I played with most of these:



And created tiny hemmed bits:


Bigger hemmed and bound bits:


Blind hemmed bits (I know, it looks like I was drunk, I really wasn’t!)


Gathered and ruffled bits:


Pintucked bits:


Edge stitched (lace) and zigzagged bits (lace onto black bit, I was all about doubling up of bits at this stage!)


And finally I buttonholed with the 2 different types I had (the one on the right was far more hit and miss and I was just randomly selecting options, while the one on the left used cams):


In Progress This Week:

Pattern planning for QN

To Be Worked On This Week:

  • Dusting off my party dress
  • Spending time with my family
  • And maybe a bit more planning, there’s bits of notepad everywhere!

Hope you all have a fantastic week!
