Another few weeks slipped past with no quilting or embroidery done. The past two weeks was just spend relaxing and wondering what 2021 will bring as for me personally 2020 ended on a very low note.
The new job I was so exited about did not work out and as I am writing this I am still jobless as all in the engineering industry closed over the holiday season. As the industry is also in a very precarious position due to an almost bankrupt government, the prospect of finding another job is slim at best. But, as Jenny of Elefantz so eloquently put it, we should not despair "for we know the Lord is for us and not against us, that He will make a way where there seems no way, and He will provide for His flock."
My machine is however a totally different story as it is now already out of order for two months. As the matter is still ongoing, I will write about that later. I am taking it for a second opinion tomorrow and will hopefully get it fixed soon. I might have to fall back on machine embroidery and quilting to supplement our income so I need my machine up and running. It might also be time to seriously start designing and selling embroidery designs online with the digitizing program I won way back in 2004 and never really had time to get going whilst working fulltime. I am still praying about this for guidance as to what direction I should take.
The only thing I did manage to do was sorting through my fabrics and copied two of my friends who started organizing their fabrics neatly. It was however a huge task as I first had to cut up empty boxes to A4 sizes and then wrapping the fabrics around it. But it was all worth it as the before and after pictures clearly show. Now I can actually see what is there at first glance. This however exclude my quilting fabrics which are stowed away in drawers.
