My new toy ...

... and I'm so in love!!


Sorry for my absence, but I've got the sewing bug. After my Singer broke whilst making cushions I decided that it was time for a new machine. I had been pondering this purchase for a while, but as I'm emotionally attached to my old machine (my dad bought it for me over 20 years ago) I'd been very hesitant. Then after reading about 1-step button holes, amongst over new features, I was sold!!

Now I've been stocking up on fabric (with a trip to Birmingham Rag Market yesterday) and researching a few new patterns. I've made Mia a dress, a skirt for me and started another dress for Mia, just waiting on some fabric for Lily's, so more about that in the next post.

Hope you're all enjoying the much needed sunshine this Bank Holiday.
