Sewing

Not doing much writing at the moment. Am away and need to have my head in the present and not in a fantasy world. Will post update on OFM next week when I’m back home.

Thought I’d do a post instead about my new hobby – sewing! Every year Great British Sewing Bee has been on TV my daughter and I, eager to make something, have looked at buying a sewing machine but could never decide which one to get. Thank goodness for Hobbycraft and its helpful website I was able to choose the right beginners Brother sewing machine for us which I got in November as an early Christmas present. It came with a DVD of ‘how to’ which is brilliant and essential for me. Sewing machines used to scare me, ever since my Nan trapped her finger under the needle – apparently that can’t happen with these modern machines. Fingers crossed, if I have any left 😉

Surprise Christmas present – sewing basket. So cute.

First sewing project is complete – reversible poncho (made from black fleece and tartan material) for my daughter & she actually wears it!

Second sewing project (hand sewn though as not at home) – covers for my dad’s vacuum drainage bottles so he doesn’t scare my mum when he visits her.

Looking forward to the next sewing project & this year’s Great British Sewing Bee!
