Tater Tot has been a cuddlebug as of late. I think most of it has to do with the change in weather, but it could also be that she is at a point where she feels more comfortable with us. She has been snoozing in sleeping bags, on top of our coats, underneath the covers and anywhere she can get. I had extra fabric from the tree skirt and decided to make her a dog blanket. Now she is cuddled-up on the couch, wrapped in a sleeping bag and dog blanket. I need to take photos yet and when I do, I will post them.
As I had posted earlier, my sewing machine had kept jamming. Tonight,
Ryan and I performed surgery on it to fix it. I don't know what the
part was called, but it was loose and so it caused another part to
scrape away the plastic of the case and then get stuck in it.
Thankfully, the surgery worked and I was able to sew once again!
Baby's First Christmas Booties and the second are Yellow and White Plaid Booties.
Yesterday, I had decided that I would make something new for my shop. Unfortunately, this is the day my sewing machine decided to jam and after a couple frustrating hours, I decided to leave it be. My next craft I tackled was much more successful.
After watching this video, I successfully completed my first polish star ornament on Sunday.
