I must be the worlds worst blogger. When I signed up I had wonderful intentions of blogging regularly and sharing my craft projects. I now see that I haven't posted for several months. It's about time I altered that.
Some time ago I was very lucky to receive my mother-in-law's old sewing machine. Now it has been years since I did any serious sewing (over 20 years, in fact). As this was the case I duly popped the machine into my craft room and there it sat. It sat for quite some time as I went through various blogs and galleries on websites, noting what good use other people made of their sewing machines. I even used a pricking tool and a ruler to make a lovely border around a card, which I then painstakingly stitched by hand. Finally, I decided that enough was enough and, after an hour with a reel of thread and the instruction booklet I can say that using a sewing machine is like falling off a bike. When you've done it once it all comes flooding back to you when you do it again.
Here is the rather shaky result.
Thanks to my mother-in-law for my new crafting tool.
If anyone is interested in the lovely tulip stamp it is a free digistamp from Bird's Card Blog. It can be found here along with some other lovely florals.
Thanks for reading.
