Start Sewing again – 230709

Filed under: Uncategorized — xstitcherzo @ 9:22 am

Eversince I got my overlock machine service again (well 2 weeks ago). The man came down to house, he literally took apart the machine till the skeleton. he clean, rub, dust, all the manly words used to clean rust and make into 90% brand new. He took 3hrs and charged me only S$40. I was scared stiif that it was going to be so expensive.

So I started sewing…more like hemming my mum’s sarong. I cut a pair of long trousers for Adam. Switched over to my ever trusty Sakura sewing machine of 11years of not having to be serviced in all those years that I had her. Its going to be a her…since she is Sakura brand. Repaired 3 of Adam’s trousers. Boys have a knack for wearing out the underside faster than they rip out the pockets. Sew the trousers.

Going to Chinatown this evening to pick a hem gauge (if they have) and elastic bands. I don’t think I am going to stop at 1. I have more to make. With the National Day coming up, Adam wants to wear something white and red to school. I probably make 3/4 for me.

It’s best I make full use of the fabrics that I have bought over the years but was too sad to cut them. Time to re-change and get those things out of the boxes and in better use. After I live only once…what use would it be once I am dead. They cant bury all my treasures with me.

Going on to 34, woman have grown more and more practical and grounded.

33weeks yesterday and feet is badly swollen. Could feel the baby moving slowly against my tummy. I guess he too does not have enough space to swirl about. Going for another check up on next Monday. Primary 1 registration for Adam on next Wed and Thurs. Depends if I manage to get to register him into 1 school unless no more vacancies.

It’s certainly not easy, walking around with huge tummy. Going to measure my tummy this evening and more photos…so that i can scare myself once I’ve delivered.

Cheers and I am outta here.

  2. Hope you’ll show us some pics of your sewing 😉

    Hope you are both doing okay … poor you: I never got swollen feet during my pregnancy but my SIL did and it seemed very uncomfortable … 😦
