This is my sewing machine, her name is Ethel. She is a lovely old lady, in good condition and ready to go. There is one hitch. I can't figure out how she works!
She has been in my loft for (many, many) years due to this minor issue. But with my plans for my business starting to come together, I thought it time she was brought back down and for me to learn once and for all, how to use her.
So now she is sitting on my lounge floor, and I am sitting in front of her with my legs crossed. And we are looking at each other, wondering how this is going to pan out.
Thank goodness for the power of Facebook. A rather fabulous friend of mine saw my plight (a rather pathetic status update) and has volunteered to come over and give me a crash course.
I thought for a moment I actually saw Ethel breathe a small sigh of relief!
So this is it, Ethel is coming out of retirement and I am learning a new skill.
Wish us luck.
