4 Big Sleeps and I get my sewing knee back

Hurrah, I've been counting down the weeks until I get my right knee back to normal use ... which means no more up/down steps one-at-a-time, and the return of actual stitching content.

Funnily enough, the first weekend will include delivery of a new-to-me vintage treadle sewing machine. It's going into the storage room - which has no electricity - and I'll be able to do some stitching down there in a beautifully restored machine. The treadle table is a different vintage to the machine head, a delicious Singer 201k.

Since Friday I've been counting Big Sleeps until I remove the knee support and can sit on a bus, cinema or theatre seat. -happy dance- I've got an appointment with a physio on Friday after work, if you hear screams of pain (or more likely maniacal laughter) from Sydney CBD it's likely to be me. There are a couple of owwie spots that may produce it.

It will have been 10 weeks, and I'll celebrate it being over by also joining the Pattern Review afternoon tea in Parramatta.


  1. So glad to hear you're near the end of it all! I'll see you on Saturday in Parra footloose and fancy free then

    1. If I've got enough self-discipline I'll get my UFO blouse done, and possibly my UFO skirt. If I can get it cut & pinned ready to sew Friday night/Saturday morning.
