Well, I was hoping to be showing you all pics of my first attempt at machine quilting but unfortunately it's been put on the back burner for a little while, through no fault of my own I might add. We are having walking foot problems, I have been told by the man in my sewing machine shop that they never made them for my machine ( as it's about 30 years old) and has a "long shank". He gave me a generic one to try but it wouldn't fit so he said I have to go back at the end of the week and he will try to find something else as he doesn't like to be beaten. I just hope he finds something. Any of you knowledgeable ladies out there have any advice?
So instead I have been doing some knitting, a jumper for my nephew for Christmas.
Want to see my presents?
I saw this fabric in Ikea and just it was love at first sight so Hub kindly bought some for me. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet though.
Isn't it pretty, and can you see what it's lying on? Yeah a cutting mat, Hub found one in a bookshop that we were browsing in , we thing it was incorrectly priced as it's A2 size and was only £7 !! Isn't my Hub just great...
Want to see what else I got last week - yes, there is more.
Soo offered to send me a magazine as a thank you for organising the magazine swap - and here is what she sent. Thank you so much Soo, it really was very kind of you.
Last but not least, Sarah sent me these, now this parcel was a complete surprise and what makes it even better is that the Holiday Crafts magazine is the one with Lina's contributions in so that's a double wow. A girl can never have too many magazines . Thank you so much Sarah
If anyone has recieved their magazine from the swap please can you let me know so that I can cross you off my list. Soo, I have noted yours.
Thank you for all the well wishes , we still have germs but not nearly so bad as they were. Hope everyone else is well, enjoy your week. I'm off to do some reading now.
