This is the start of somethings fun – that is until I paused to clean my sewing machine and dropped a screw inside the machine. After some creative tipping, I was able to retrieve the screw. I was ready to add a few drops of oil when I realized my sewing machine oil was missing. After hours of cleaning and organizing, my dear husband found it in my studio trash. I had inadvertently tossed it out with some fabric scraps. I now have a clean studio and a sewing machine ready for several very busy weeks of stitching.
While not sewing recently, I’ve been helping my husband with an arts and crafts project of his own – a giant binder about how awesome he is and why he should be promoted. The life of a college professor is not glamorous and all this pretty tabs don’t print and organize themselves. I like that kind of work so I found it lots of fun.
