My parents have gone back home and our house is painted...and we are both slightly
unnerved with the lack of super huge projects that NEED to get done. Everything is...done. We can just...do whatever we want. Hmm...
First things first, we decided we needed a coffee table as our old one was turned into a painting. We found a great wooden and tin steamer trunk on craigslist and managed to finagle it for $40. This will be good to store our blankets and linens in as we only have 2 tiny closets in the whole house.
Also, I decided to get my sewing machine fixed. I inherited it from my grandfather in 2000. After an unfortunate decision to use a broken dresser as my sewing table (it collapsed within a week), the machine has not worked well since. A quick tune up, and its running!
I am a VERY novice seamstress. Zippers terrify me and patterns are curiously bewildering. While searching through www.craftster.org I did manage to find a project that was along the lines of my current abilities.
Super Spaceship Dress from user Roethke.
I left the bottom all crazy, but I think I want to alter this a bit more.
What new project is Tavo pondering?
