It’s been a while since I’ve posted about sewing, but the recent flurry of activity making costumes for my Lutheran chuches Passion Play has pulled me in again.
Currently the last pieces of the costumes are doing their final tumbling act into the washing and drying machine. Then they’ll be pressed, hung, labeled and sent off to church where they will wait until this evening at that time they will clothe the backs of the actors who will be wearing them for this evenings Passion Play performance. I must say that I’m thankful that the Passion Play is behind me.
Now that that chapter is closed, it’s time to open up another sewing chapter, but to do that I need to stop dragging my heels and upgrade my sewing embroidery machine…
Say hello to the Brother Designio Series DZ820E Embroidery Only Machine! It’s an upgrade of the PE770 that has been available from Brother, but with a new look and quite a few extras tossed into the mix. This embroidery machine also has a bigger hoop size; 5X7. Hopefully, I won’t outgrow that too soon. My old embroidery machine actually did sewing/embroidery but this one is embroidery only. What will I do with my old machine? I do believe I’ll be giving that one to my daughter. I’d planned on doing this last year, but since I held off upgrading my machine she had to wait also. My newest machine should be here on Saturday. The machine embroidery I’ve wanted to do embroider was naturally a width I could not do with my current sewing/embroidery machine since it would only embroider up to to 4X4.
I must say, this new embroidery machine comes at a perfect time. I’m off of work this coming Monday & Tuesday. I can’t say that I’ll have a ton of time to embroidery since my daughter has play dates (both days) at our home. Whatever was I thinking about, eh?
No Sleep ‘Til
You want to know something? Besides a two hour nap (yesterday afternoon) I didn’t go to sleep at all last night.My brain as to wired! I guess, I’ll crash sometime today after I get home from work.
