So, until we can get it fixed, I am unable to do a lot of sewing unless I want to do it all by hand.
I am working on an embroidery sampler, though. In a month or so I will be teaching a friend and her 2 daughters how to do embroidery, so I am busy whipping up a sampler with a bunch of different stitches and techniques. I've found some really cool ones here. It's a really cool blog that has been very helpful in my embroidery endeavors.
