YES...I'm still alive.
And yes, I sew with my sunglasses on...
It's kind of like the song goes..."Blinded by the light..." My studio workspace during the day is like working by the pool, you need your sunglasses. Next on the house fix list- window tinting/window shade coverage for the sun windows above me.
I'm gaining confidence on my new machine. Pictures of my first makings...coming soon!
