Late Night Sewing

Tomorrow swimming starts as part of my little preppy's school day.

She had grown out of last summer's swimmers, so some new ones were in order.

I had to borrow my MIL's machine because my poor machine is still not working. My last chance is a new bobbin casing  if that doesn't work it's sewing machine heaven for the old girl (actually, she's not that old).

So I sewed Pais a bikini. Made from Amy Butler Twilight Peony fabric. It's quite delightful and I truly enjoyed sewing again.

The only think is that my MIL's machine is rather unreliable in the stitching department.  Ok for homemade, but not good enough to sell.

Maybe there will be some more bikini's in the etsy store soon.... if my dear sewing machine pulls through...

A little update on the excercise front... I walked 3 k's this morning, I was so energised I washed the car, posted some long overdue paperwork and then decided to walk to the supermarket to pick up a few things for tea.  Another 3 k's. I walked as hard as I could, you may be happy to know I broke a sweat.... Or perhaps that was too much information.

I think I have finally been bitten by the excercise bug, I can't get enough.... what's next?

I had an awful thought in the middle of the night the other night that I have forgotten to pack the girl's bikinis. What was I thinking?? The very next morning I called the house minders to get them to hunt them down and send them asap. cross your fingers I haven't hidden them too well. And I'll cross mine that your grl behaves and sews well for you. x
