less pouting, more stitching

Here's my finished felted flower from our day out at Esther's Place. I got a pin back on it and it's ready to go.

My husband has not yet given up on my sewing machine. He's thinking if parts cannot be found, or if they're old and brittle, maybe he and a friend can fabricate them in metal. He's never been one to give up on a good friend.

It'll be a while before anything is known. First, I have to pick up the machine from my sister's (she generously agreed to pick it up from the shop). Then, I have heard about a nearby repair guy who might be willing to fix it and we want to see what he says. Hopefully they guys can work with him and he can clean and lube things and point out the bits that need replacing and/or fixing.

I've been working hard on my puzzle pieces for Pat Winter's Pieces of Friendship swap. Pat suggested adding a charm and I think she's right. They just need a bit of pop and that should do it.

I love the pretty felted flower you made me a while back. It was a red rose. I usually have it on my best sweater which is a very fine black wool.
