A New Toy

I bought myself a new toy last week!

This John Lewis mini sewing machine, what a great colour!



Today I got it out the box for the first time and I love it!

My Nan was a seamstress and taught me how to use a sewing machine as a child.
I Inherited her treasured vintage Singer, (complete with table and chair!) but really wanted to refresh myself with something a little more modern.
having not touched a machine in years, I thought this would be perfect to play with!

I've also been doing some secret crafting for my swap with Beki and Jess. I'm very pleased with myself but you will have to wait to see what I've been up to!

Lots of Love

I love that sewing machine, can't wait to find a home for mine so I can use it all the time, in the box under the table at the moment!!
I've been sent over by Victoria to ask if you would like to join in the Big Knit? If you have a look at my blog you'll find all the details. Please do because the turn out is not good, don't think many people knit anymore :(
Nice to meet you :)
