Happy Wednesday! I have been a little under the weather for the past week, so I have not been sewing much. I always start to feel bad when I haven’t touched my machine in a few days, I want so badly to make something!!! I hope to get back to it soon, and these new patterns and your latest makes are certainly inspiring me! What’s your secret for getting the sew-jo going again?
