Well, my machine is back!  Unfortunately, the machine and the embroidered blouse detest one another and I'm caught in the middle.  I finally got the collar band stitched, but the machine drew the line at buttonholes.  I picked the first one out twice.  On the third go, the thread snapped, and then I stuck my finger with a pin and bled all over the collar band.  Soooo...  This blouse is just going to have to wait until I make Other Arrangements.

This morning I started on the striped linen skirt and I am enjoying pure sewing heaven.  The stripes match, the serging went beautifully, and the sewing machine loves it.  Why can't it always be like this?

Your yard is so beautiful! I'm impressed. My yard looks like the Hadenhams live there. Sorry to any stray Hadenhams that might see this....
