How hard can it be........
Very, it was very hard, I am referring back to my last post when I announced I was going to dig out the old sewing machine buried beneath a pile of junk in my garage. I haven't touched a sewing machine in 17yrs.
I'm not sure how old this sewing machine is and obviously it didn't come with any instructions, needless to say we didn't get on well together, after 15 minutes of pulling, pressing, pushing, threading, huffing and puffing that sewing machine went straight back on top of that pile of junk.
I won't let this beat me as I know I can do it. I think I need a quick crash course round at nannas house and something a bit more user friendly.
Apart from the disaster with the sewing machine, I have had a lovely weekend and managed to get quite a bit of crafting done. I now have a new man in my life... Kevin.. he is so cute.
Don't they make an adorable couple.
One more Kitty to do for Lucie, hopefully she'll be complete by the end of the week.
Lucie has also been feeling crafty this weekend and spent most of sunday sat out in the sun beading bracelets.
Such a serious face.
I haven't been allowed to see the finished item as it's a gift for me, she has also jumped on the home made xmas bandwagon.
Something amazing has happened in my garden over the weekend, I have ONE RED TOMATO, yipee!!!!! This year is the first year I have ever grown anything edible. I decided to grow courgettes and tomatoes, the courgettes are a huge success, we have had courgettes with everything, but I was beginning to worry about the tomatoes as the fruit had been a decent size for a long time and lives in a very sunny spot, but worry no more at last our tomatoes are turning red!!
My new project is to be a granny flower square cushion, I have to have one after seeing so many beautiful ones on other blogs. This is my progress so far..
I shall keep you posted on its development.
Time for just one more photo..... some gorgeous flowers picked for me by Lucie and Dylan, oh bless them.
