Good morning, everyone, and a happy Sunday to you! My heart sank earlier (much earlier) when I peered through the curtains to be greeted by . . . rain! More rain, sigh! However, right now the rain clouds have rolled away and it's sunny and really cheerful. Fingers crossed it lasts.
I had a lovely day yesterday, mostly doing the same thing which was getting to know the sewing machine a bit better. Thanks to a whole series of YouTube clips, I sussed out the 'embroidery' part of the thing and stitched a whole set of 'samples' on some old cloth.
Here's one of them - I won't bore you with the lot!
Because it is old in sewing machine development terms, the lettering is very limited and there's no USB port but there is limited programming and I now know how to program in a set of patterns and letters.
What I would use it for, I have no idea at present, but it's fun to play with!
I now also know how to do various useful bits and bobs to make ordinary sewing easier.
Now I have to revise zips - the method has changed since I learned as a teenager - and how to use the buttonhole thingy. Maybe that's today's focus.
I also had a pleasant walk in the sunshine. It didn't feel warm until one was out of the wind and then it was very spring-like. I've just been to the shed and it's mild again. Long may it last!
That's about it for today. Nothing very exciting but I'm sure it will be a happy day and I hope yours is too. xx
It's rather wet and windy here today, though it's eased up from the strength of the wind during the night ... bad enough that a neighbour down the road has lost their fence again.ReplyDelete
It looks like you had fun making all your samplers and learning the features on your machine. Isn't YouTube brilliant!
It's clouding over now so who knows, but nothing like you describe.Delete
I did have fun and how would we manage without YouTube?
Well done on the embroidery I have trouble with my machine just getting the tension right for doing a simple seem.ReplyDelete
Perhaps it needs a service? They do, now and again, like cars!Delete
Aren't sewing machines clever these days, I love all the different stitches yours can do … even if it is an older model.ReplyDelete
I agree, they really are. I was starting to wonder about getting a more modern one, one with computer connection, etc, but then I thought 'what on earth would I do with it? Sometimes one is never satisfied but I am determined to be satisfied and do appreciate how lucky I am.Delete
