proud moment!

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

proud moment!

Well I am so very proud of myself today. After wrestling with a borrowed sewing machine I have managed to make DD a personalised gym bag ready for school. All lined and everything! I haven't used a sewing machine for about 25 years and I was fairly incompetent back then so it was a very proud moment when it was all finished. Just thought I'd share :D

Off to make some bunting for my niece now...

Yay, well done! What other things would you fancy getting your teeth into if you had a machine of your own?

I didn't think I would have the patience to be honest but once I'd sorted out threading and bobbins etc I quite enjoyed it. Looking for something to while away the hours when DD starts school so perhaps this is it! My new addiction!

I don't really know what else I could get my teeth into SP. Any suggestions?

I'll try and upload a pic to flickr if I can work it out watch this space...

Congratulations! Did you find that even after so any years you could thread the thing up without a second thought? I hemmed up some curtains when we moved into our house (ooooh, straight lines!) and Mr Feefielou was stunned by this hidden talent; it just came back like riding a bike or something.

I had a spot of bother threading and sorting out the bobbin and a spot of bother with the zig zag. Other than that it was fairly plain sailing.

Joined flickr and just waiting for skip to let me in. Watch this space...
