Today I did a lot of tasks that I had been putting off for a while. First, I sprayed the soles of the slippers that I made for my husband and I. This task had to be put off because it was too cold to spray before this. It was a warm, sunny day, so I took them outside. So far, I’ve done 5 coats. I think I’ll do a few more until the can runs out.
I did a little felting after that but I’ll show you that next week on the Felting and Fiber Studio blog. When I bought my Pfaff sewing machine in June 2012, I was told that I could get a free cleaning and tune up if I brought the machine in before two years was up. So I decided I should get that taken care of and also learn how to use the embroidery unit on the machine. I was offered three free classes to learn how to use the machine which I never used. So, since I was already taking the machine in, I decided I should take a class as well.
Here’s the embroidery piece that I did during the “class”. Essentially, the woman just showed me the basics of how the embroidery unit works. I’m not sure I will use it much but I thought I should at least know the basics. The patterns aren’t exactly what I would normally use and it costs $2,200.00 to buy the software package that allows you to develop your own designs. So I guess if I do use it, I’ll be using what came with the machine.
I haven’t gotten much work done on my felted landscape but I have started the stitching in the tree section. If you click on the photo and enlarge it, you’ll be able to see the stitching a bit better. It still needs a lot of stitching. I’m not sure why I haven’t been working on this one but somehow, I’m not too excited about it. But I’ll get it done eventually. What have you been putting off?
