My trusty 507 broke down on me in October while making my Brighton Pavilion top. The repair took a could of weeks to get done and set me back £75 whole pounds for replacement gears and service (same one as last time). Incidentally, that same week my car needed a new battery and my Samsung Galaxy S II had to be sent away by O2 for a replacement electrical board. The curse of threes eh?
I let the top languish in a pile for almost three months while things like Christmas and other projects like kitty collars took precedence. You’re not a true craftswoman/man/beast in my opinion if you don’t have a bag/box for “stuff I started and need to finish.” Mine includes several alterations I’m supposed to have done for my sister, a leopard print pencil skirt, a laptop case, a dress and Colette Sencha.
Anyway, I can officially pat myself on the back now as the Anne Adams Brighton Pavilion top is finished!
