Sail

The sail that came with our Viking Faering boat, Skogar Þrostur, has a lovely blackbird (her original name) painted on it.  But the paint is very stiff and makes the sail hard to handle.  So we bought another piece of canvas to make into a plain white sail which will take very little time to do except that the sewing machine no longer works!  ARGH!

It's an older, more-rugged-than-these-youngsters sewing machine and has worked well for donkey's years.  It's sewed all my nephews' Christmas stockings and many, many, many childhood outfits for my stepdaughter.  The machine seems to be OK but the pedal no longer works and now we'll have to find a sewing machine repair person and find out how much.  Sigh.


I realize a boat is a hole in the water into which one throws money; but we haven't actually spent any money on the boat.  We've bought a plastic portable garage, and ground anchors after the garage blew into the back yard, had the trailer re-wired, the front of the trailer re-welded and the tires on the trailer replaced and now the sewing machine.  It's ridiculous.

Just wait until we get around to re-painting the boat!

It's a good thing we LOVE doing demos so much it's all worth it!
  The demo in Blak Rose was so much fun we can't wait for next weekend at the Daily Life Schola and to find more venues.
