Projects-Craft

FRUSTRATED by Breaking Thread?

I had to share this for those of you who, like me, love to sew, but have very little formal sewing knowledge.  While working on a basic hem project for choir uniform dresses, I found the first hem would go just fine.  Then, on the second dress, I’d get maybe a quarter way around and my top thread would snap not just once, but repeatedly.  It makes for a very time-consuming project.  I threaded and re-threaded, checked every setting-multiple times.  Nothing.

Here’s the secret–it’s all in the thread.  The polyester thread I chose (specifically for stretch fabric)  needs to come off the spool in a specific direction.  I need a thread director or a thread lubrication system; without it the thread twists, coming off the spool and eventually pops.  My machine actually has a system in place to do this–I just didn’t know to do it.  That’s why the first dress went smoothly and subsequent ones did not.  The more I sewed, the more the thread twisted, the more FRUSTRATED I became.  Apparently this happens with metallic embroidery thread as well.  My Bernina has an available embroidery module, so if I ever decide to try that, at least I know how to prevent the issue.

The quick fix was just switch to a non-stretch thread.  The hems look awesome, my sanity has been restored, and knowledge gained.

Homeschool

Moving Past Homeschool Burn Out

In all honesty, by the end of last school year I was BURNT OUT!   I started the year with one homeschooled child and ended with two as a foray back into public school just didn’t work out.  Our routine had gotten off to a great start and was suddenly scattered and in disarray.  There were a lot of hurt feelings and much sibling competition for my time.  Needless to say, it all just left me feeling a bit lack luster and frustrated.  Being a stay-at-home parent doesn’t often afford the luxury of alone time, especially when you homeschool. I felt quite overwhelmed and in need of a recharge.

This year we started with everyone on the same page, all four of us on day one of the 2018-2019 school year together.  All of us, together, on the same day.  No chance of the “but she’s not”s. I have an older child who has attended public school since 6th grade and is now a Junior in High School. She drives herself to school now! No more early morning drop-offs mean I get a little more of that elusive alone time before the day starts.  Time to do what I need, wether it be the dishes left in the sink from the night before or just time to sit on the back porch, coffee in hand, enjoying the chirping of crickets. Now, once my middle schooler wakes to her alarm clock (major win), around seven a.m., after everyone who is leaving for the day is gone, our homeschool day officially begins.

Poetry

Dreams and Knitted Knots

Dreams and Knitted Knots


I look at you and remember when I couldn’t wait to place my hands upon your keys,

notes drifting and blending in,

a song played for mice or men.

I look at you and remember when I raised my voice,

sang words that spoke to my own heart,

fulfilled my need to be a part.

I look at you and remember when I longed to tend,

tame your growth, help you bloom with petals most.

I look at you and remember when my fingers flew with needle and thread,

a quilt just waiting for a bed.

I look at you and see a box,

full of dreams and knitted knots.

In the corner, just over there, are clips and clasps still unaware — makings littered everywhere.

I look at me, see talents there — slightly rusty — still in my care.
