I got my little machine back, at last! yayyyy!!
However, it did take me some time to get my sewing mojo back, but its back and I am sewing away again.
I was very behind with my Secret Stitching Angel projects but they are all now packaged and ready to be posted tomorrow to America, fingers crossed they don't get caught up in the strike!!
It took me a while to decide what to make (no change there lol) but I finally decided on a fabric journal cover, a needle case, and a little drawstring bag. I also added into my parcel a bar of Cadburys chocolate (hope she likes chocolate), some shamrock seeds and a little teacher pin (as she is a teacher).
I can't reveal her whereabouts until I know that she has received them. I do hope she likes them, am I the only worrier about whether or not my swap partner will like what I have made her ?
I have also just finished my other swap gift for a good friend from the Crows and Roses group. I can't post a photo yet just in case she is watching, but again I am more than a little nervous about this, its a little bit different in style for me, but fingers crossed she will like it.
TOP TIP OF THE DAY
You know whenever you have a favourite pair of scissors (you know the ones I mean) that you keep just for cutting fabric, not one cut of paper is allowed - purely and simply for the precious fabric from my stash.
Well, keep yours hidden, even under lock and key! Especially if you have a music, guitar mad son (take a deep breath - in, out keep calm!) takes and them and wait for it (more controlled breathing) CUTS HIS GUITAR STRINGS WITH THEM! Can you believe it, I was almost beyond words as I chewed my way very unsuccessfully through my beloved fabric - !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But you will be impressed, I kept my head and I calmly told him don't worry it was no big problem, but if it happened again I would not be responsible for my actions!!!! ROFL
