As the Rover pulled into the drive, I could see the package staring at me from the side stoop. There it is. The little brown package is for me! Bubbling with excitement, I flung open the car door to race to the loot left by the brown-truck-gods. MY SEWING MACHINE PEDAL AND OWNERS MANUEL HAVE ARRIVED. It’s absence has been missed, and honestly admitted, convenient. I have been able to procrastinate all my fun projects by justifying the delay. “I do not have a pedal on my machine,” I enthused myself. No more excuses. It is here.
It’s advent upon my house brings new fervor to my sewing aspirations. Since the packages’ arrival, I have ordered a pouch pattern so that I can attempt to make Beatrice and I a new pouch. We love ours so much. A new design would add some mojo to our assortment. Here’s the fabric I selected,

Realizing that it is flamboyant, our other one is khaki and white. GG said with lack of any eloquence, “it’s not very attractive.” This is coming from a woman who wears fluorescent flops with a metallic ball slammed against the large toe. A grain of salt couldn’t be less offensive. I just let it roll off my back because I LIKE my plain, classic snow flowers on brown pouch. You can get a glimpse of the sewfunky pouch on one of my earlier posts, here.
What do you think? Do you think this fabric selection screams too loudly? I can always make others. But, I have to start somewhere. I will keep you posted to my progress. It has been a very long time since I have sewn. Wish me luck, lots of luck.
