Well, the order of the day (after school and the like) is a trip to the repair shop.  It's time to fix my 1973 Singer and ask some questions about why sparks flew from the Wizard last night when I tried to plug it in.  All that Spring sewing is going to be on the back burner for a bit, I guess.  I'll admit that I am a little disappointed at all these sewing issues (which started in December), but that's what happens when you use things--they need work to keep on going.

Portable Singer

And then there's this little beauty--the Singer 221-1 Portable Sewing Machine.  All she needs is a power cord with the pedal, which I can easily get from eBay and we will be ready to go!  This machine has a ruffle foot, of all things! Here's the children's machine, as well. ;-)  I kind of wish my were hand-cranked, too.  I guess my 1929 Singer is still good.  I could bring her out of retirement. . .

The Girls' Hats

Here's some hand sewing that went well!  Willow made this matching hat for Virginia yesterday afternoon, making up her own pattern with some direction from me.  I helped with the bow on the little felt hat and both girls are well-pleased.  She'd saved her money and purchased this bride's hat at the local antique store (after pining for it the appropriate amount of time).  I think we are calling this the new Anne of Green Gables costume.

In Caps Tee

I guess I could take the sewing machine woes as a sign that knitting is the job for me right now, along with some Easter crafting.  These needles need only my hands to keep them going (and now I'm a little nervous about that!)  Here's Willow's In Caps Tee, which turned out well.  This was a fast knit that didn't take too much yarn at all.  I even have some left over for a pair of mittens.  Maybe I should get on that.  I've started a ravelry queue, so I guess this is the time to pick something and go with it.
