Trying to Finish Things
I was halfway through machine sewing the binding on when my sewing machine needle bent. I didn't have another because this is the second sewing machine needle I have bent in the 23 years I have owned my machine. Does anyone think that is good going or just plain weird? or normal?? I have read that you should change the needle after every project and I cannot for the life of me work out why. That needle didn't appear to be incredibly blunt or adversely affect what I was sewing or my experience of using the machine.
I have borrowed two needles from my good friend Suzy from rugrat rodeos, the star. This allowed me to at least get the binding on yesterday.
So as I will have to show you that another week I thought I would show you the pirate blanket I made for my little boy. He loves it and it is currently being used as the floor for our latest 'den', which is some large sheets of cardboard taped together. He uses it a lot for different things which is very cute.
