WOYWW 8th February 2012

How can it be Wednesday again....the weeks certainly do fly by when you're having fun!! Wednesday is always a fun day....a day to blog hop your way around the world to see what other WOYWW'ers are up to. If you are completely clueless about this Wednesday ritual, just click here to hop on over to Queen Julia's blog to find out what the heck I'm talking about.

So what exactly is on my desk this week.??? Actually, this week it's my kitchen table but there in all it's glory is my shiny new sewing machine.
For those of you who are regular visitors here, the saga finally comes to an end...it's arrived and it's fabulous. I have lots to learn but it does some amazing stitchery!!!

These are just a couple of test scraps so that I could see what fancy stitching looks like in real life instead of  in the book......I'm really quite impressed!!!

So today's post is a short one as my sewing machine is calling me. I'll be round to check on your desks tonight.

Tooooooo much fun! Contemplating a new one myself but then I would definitely need a 10 day week and 5 day weekend....and DT deadlines with an escape hatch! Only working two days a week now and and am always short of time! Have great fun with your brother....was just admiring these... and thought of you.

Lovely shiny machine. If it was mine I would keep stroking it. When I bought mine some 30 years ago it was state of the art and I was thrilled with it - not a patch on yours. It has buttons and look at those stitched leaves, wow! Can you tell I'm impressed.

Loving your stitched scraps, methinks you are going to have heaps of fun with your new toy/tool

VonnyK said...

What a fabulous machine. I'm sure you will have a great time making things on that. It does a heap of fabulous stitches. Have to admit I'm in awe of people who can sew. I am hopeless with a mchine, always break the cotton halfway through.
Have a great week.
