A friend of mine fashioned a bikini swimsuit and hair scrunchie for her little niece. I thought that was very creative.

Ha! A bird named Spike! I had a very close friend named Spike. He was a hard drinking, long haired biker guy with tats covering most of him. (Another lifetime). I once hung with that crowd. Great bunch of people. With only a very few exceptions, every biker I've ever known had a heart of gold and would try to help anyone in trouble.

The movies made "Bikers" into bad guys. An unearned title anywhere I've been. I've owned 13 bikes. Each of them, (except the last three), met an awful death due to box drivers hitting them. Now I'm a box driver. Ain't life cool?

Ahem... Back on topic, I finally finished shortening the last pair of pants. I think I've figured out my tension. All the pants were either thin dress pants, or heavy corduroy. The change in thickness was drastic, so now I know to loosen for thin fabrics and tighten for thick. I know it sounds backwards, but that's what worked.

I'm going to work on my blouse tomorrow, and tell my friend not to be getting me more work. I really don't want to do it, I don't need the stress or pressure either.

This is why I love my Husqvarna. All I have to do is select the fabric type, stitch type and it adjusts the tension automatically, tells me which needle and which foot to use. And, it beeps when the bobbin thread is almost empty so I never run out of bobbin thread when sewing. I love that machine...just wish I spent more time sewing. It's like having a KA stand mixer with all the attachments in the sewing room.
