Hopefully the reason for the name for this post will become clear.......
Another wonderful winning came today...
A gorgeous hot plate from the scrapbucket quilter. I love it.
If you look back to my previous post, I set out some of my new years sewing tasks.
3) was to work out what a sewing bee is.
And I had a message from Jamie (check out her great blog here), who suggested the stash bee had a place. Now I began to panic, still not really knowing what this entailed, but decided to jump in with 2 feet (I usually find that people point out my mistakes as I go along and then I work out what I should be doing along the way - so figured that will probably be the case here!) Before I knew it Sunni had signed me up.
All this when my sewing machine has just broken.
so number 5) was put into action, an advert for 'servicing sewing machines' led to Keith coming to collect my sewing machine and promising to have it back working again by the weekend. (Keith, by the way, was not as I had imagined him to be..... he looked like he should be sitting behind a piano or an organ at a holiday camp evening entertainment, he had slick grey hair, and the shiny patent black shoes). So my machine has disappeared in the back of his car.
But, today has not been wasted, I have planned and cut, and drawn and planned and cut again....
These will be going to make up my tree square for the stash bee (will it be up to scratch of these here?).
