...hence sewing in the south-facing conservatory was not high up my list of things to do earlier today!
But as the temperature dropped, I followed the manual and duly learnt how to fill a bobbin, thread the machine and auto-thread the needle!! I even got to play with some of the fancy-schmancy stitches!!
OK it's only a start, but I've been making the needle go up and down and cut the threads at the touch of a button and going 'pedal-free', now that's bizarre. So all is good, I am still very very happy!
I spent the earlier part of the evening making up parcels, lots of parcels! It's the Brit Quilt Swap mailout later in the week - how excited am I to get mine on it's way to it's rightful owner! So here's the last chance to see it here party-partner...
... next stop, your doormat! Well, maybe the Postie's hand, as it's a big parcel (see those little extras too) and I'll send it recorded delivery!
Well now the birthday is over, I have some serious sewing to attend to - big Mystery block awaiting attention, tiny Farmer's Wife blocks to catch up on and the Kaleidoscope quilt and Japanese Swap fabric to cut... busy busy... the teacher's are definitely still striking right?!
