I can move again!
Well, I stayed away from the sewing machines this weekend and tried to mend. It was a weekend of Tiger Balm, Tylenol, and my new favourite machine that every sewing room should be equipped with:
What is it?
HoMEDICS, a hand held massager.
Every sewing basket needs one of these.
And maybe a timer to remind me to get up an stretch and do some exercises as a break to avoid sitting at the sewing machines for too long.
Maybe that is how I hurt my neck? The double-take when he asked the question. Even Mama R was shocked. Bless his little heart, he is the one nephew that I can say has always been happy with the items I've made for him. But he is thirteen, a teenager, I didn't expect that he would let me have the honour to make him one more fleece.
So, digging through my stash of patterns I was able to find my Simplicity 3651 pattern of mens and boys parkas. A few adjustments to the style as per my nephew's request and this will work.
So it was off to the fabric store since I didn't have anymore fleece in my fabric stash.
I was in trouble once I got to the fabric store, there was too much to chose from. I thought I would have had it narrowed down to the colour green, his favourite colour. And then there were other prints. Yikes!
I won't tell you which fabric he chose, I'll just say that I was surprised.
And I think the colour suits him too.
Who knew that was his second favourite colour?
