For Christmas hubby bought me a second hand sewing machine as I had decided that 2011 was going to be the year when I made more handmade items. Usually if I sew I hand sew but this is not viable if I am going to be making items for my stall at the fairs I will be attending as it take so long.
Today as I was reading through blogs I came across Annie of The Felt Fairy’s blog - A Monthly Make 2011 - and thought YES!!! So I duly signed up to it and as it was my day off I decided that some projects that I had in mind would be started. I would not put if off any longer I would get out my new machine and begin.
Rather than throw it across the room and stomp on it as I would really like to do I packed it away until I felt calmer. Half a bottle of Rescue Remedy later I am feeling a little better and more in control of myself.
I am sure it is something simple and can be easily remedied but for now I will just have to revert to hand sewing. Now where did I put my thimble......
