My sewing machine

I have something to confess!
My sewing machine is angry at me! We are not even on speaking terms!
This all due to my negligence of sewing projects and being engaged with other work. So it has been feeling rejected and not cared for. The truth is that I haven't been able to sew a stitch for a while now and I really miss it!
From where I sit now, I can see it pouting and acting indifferently! I plan to alter that.
I plan on bribing it, softening its feelings, with a lovely fabric I dug out from my stash so it can bite into it delightfully!
I know it'll forgive me! For our story is old and lengthy.

This is the fabric for the dress I am going to make for Eva. It looks so fresh, vivid, heart-pounding and joy bringing. Just a perfect thing for Easter - that is if the weather finally sets its mind on what it would be for Easter.

I also found the perfect design for the green velvet. An image of a dress I saw on a recently discovered blog. More about it- hopefully next week.

Oh, that gorgeous fabric! I would love to see it made up into the dress you are talking about! I hope you and your machine will kiss and make up soon.

Thank you Emily!
The fabric is truly gorgeous but the picture doesn't give it justice. I couldn't find a bright spot in the house that would show off its prettiness due to the bad weather!

So very pretty, love your language talking about your sewing machine biting into the fabric. I never thought about it but mine must really enjoy the cleaning we have put it through and that is why it doesn't squeak complainingly any longer while I sew ;)

I love the fabric, it goes so well with the spring coming. I look forward to seeing the result. Good luck!
