Meanwhile, my sewing machine has been at the shop for repairs since December 19th. It probably won't be ready for another week. I have been doing lots of hand work, as you saw in my previous post on the Riley-Blake challenge, plus I have completed one fingerless glove in the most gorgeous hand-dyed yarn. The second glove is underway. I have also organized some kitchen drawers and the file cabinet in the dining room. So there are benefits to having the sewing machine in the shop!
