RIP old sewing machine

Getting Ready to Sew

So I have the new machine out of it's box and set up on the bench.  I have read the manual from front to back and I now just have to start sewing.  But there is a problem.  The room is a mess.  I need to put everything in it's right place before I can begin.

I think this is part of my problem.  Nice to have it in a poster. So I spent a whole day just getting my room in order.  I could blame it on the weather I suppose?  The weather has been completely out of control.  A drought, then the fires now more rain in a few days than we have had in over a year.  It is hot and humid, rather like a sauna.  The seed that I put out for the birds has grown into grass! I wonder if it will develop into flowers?

And flowers that should be finished are in bloom again.

The rate of growth is just amazing.  This is the climber two weeks ago.

The weather has driven Larry into the house.

Some other poor person found this when they opened their sewing box.  I'm glad it wasn't me.

Besides the rain we have also had King tides.  The creeks overflowed and the tide rose so high there was a meeting of fresh and salty waters.  Now we will have an explosion of baby cane toads and mosquitos.   I'm procrastinating again.  I have to start sewing!!!!

One thing is for sure - the weather/climate is extreme these days.
I hope you get to play with your sewing machine without disruptions.

Well I have got to take up some hems on a couple of bedspreads, if that counts?


Good luck with the sewing starting!
