My new Toy

Got myself a new sewing machine for Christmas. It is only a very basic Brother machine - but it also only cost $150 brand spanking so was pretty chuffed at my half price special!

I have lots of plans and am already of dreaming of things to make. But, slow and steady I think as I haven't sewed on a maching for a very long time (think 15years+)

I whipped myself up a pin cushion last night while trying to work out how to use it. Have also cut out the pieces for a dress for Abbey (my 4 year old) so am going to try to attack that soon.

I am waiting on a new Amy Butler book to arrive and have plans to attack some projects from that.

Also going to try a sock monkey which I think is something simple for me to make while I am still trying to get my head around everything!
