An exciting addition to the home.

I bought a sewing machine!

That is my exciting addition.:
I have never owned a machine before but I have wanted one for a long time and when I saw a similar machine to the one above last week I decided to take the plunge and sign up for a demo. I duly attended the demo yesterday and as I sat in front of the machine my heart gave a little flutter. Twenty minutes later I was hooked and walked away the proud owner of a new machine. So head hurts from all the creative ideas going round in my head.

My first project is going to be a cell phone case for my daughter, as she has just had a new phone. I found a lovely tutorial by Cheryl at a pretty cool life so I will be working on that this week. This is what I hoping it will look like:

I also bought some calico and threads to start embroidering the dolls I bought from Jenny B Harris at allsorts. The plan is to embroidery 12 different dolls and incorporate them into a quilt. I will keep you updated on how this project is coming along.

So all in all a very good weekend, apart from the ironing!

Off to tea with the boys.
