Cover Stitch Machine

Today's post was going to be about finding a Thankyou card, through the door when I arrived at work today.
A beautiful card, made and given with some thought. 
It was a Thankyou card for taking time out to help a lady who was having a problem with shortening a dress for somebody and needed it rescuing. So together we sat unpicking it, all 3 metres of stretch stitches. Then I used the rolled hem facilities on the overlocker to do the hem. 

However I am so excited because my Cover Stitch machine finally arrived  today.
I ordered it and paid for it in June after seeing them used on the Sewing Bee.
This machine should give me a more professional finish on my stretch hems, predominantly on jersey/knit fabric.

Happy Birthday!

Today the shop is 2 years old!

What a journey I have been on. I could only dream and imagine how the shop was going to evolve!

So here is to the next two years, and beyond!!

entertaining DGD!

So today I took my granddaughter to work with me. As predicted she soon got board and while I was cutting out envelope cushions upstairs she wanted to make an Emoji. 
Not any Emoji though. She wanted the "poo".
So she chose some brown velvet curtain remnants and with a little felt, and the help of my Saturday girl and my self after work, we produced her cushion.

Flags Galore

Today was a busy day at work, making flags. 
It's an ongoing job that my Saturday girl started to cut out etc for me last week. But the deadline for making them all is next Friday. So today apart from doing fittings, all I did was a conveyor belt of flags. 
The order is for 28 flags for the Brackley Rugby Club!
So by the end of the day there are about 6 finished.
Guess that I will be sewing flags for a few days yet.
On the home front I still haven't really achieved very much. I'm either too tired or too lazy. 
What I have been doing is focussing on the LOA (law of attraction), and feeling amazed and very positive.
The goal I set myself was to find £30 a day (adverage), extra income towards my goal for £100,00 when I retire. It sounds like a total and utter pipe dream. 
But yesterday the first of my days, I received £27 for selling bits and bobs, and £20 worth of vouchers were given to me for helping a lady out of a sewing mess.
Then today I received £40 from selling some cushions I'd made.
Also last night I went to bed focussing on my Sewing Lessons, and imagining that they were all booked up for the month, and although I have a few spaces left, I have had two bookings today, and several requests for more information.
So I can honestly say that having a positive attitude and a belief that I can achieve is showing fairly good returns.

So flags up!!
