Trying out my new sewing machine....

I've been playing with my new lightweight Janome sewing machine which I love... I wanted a lightweight machine I would take to our sewing group    instead of lugging my big Janome machine with me.
I found some scraps of black and white fabric with an animal theme and just about had enough to make a scrap tote bag.
It has a small pocket on the front and I even managed to find a Zebra head button in my stash which I've used...

                                                 Back of bag

Inside are two large pockets, really pleased with the end result although the fabric isn't brilliant....
My cathedral window cushion front has been hanging around for ages so I also managed to complete that.

Hopefully I will have a card to share with you at the weekend...

Little bit of Vintage...

A really quick card today, I used this lovely image before  but she was already mounted on the oval die cut so found some pretty papers and popped her on a card.

The grandchildren on still on holiday for another week so no time to craft, plus when I went to Shepton Mallet craft show last week I treated myself to a new sewing machine which arrives today so guess any spare time I get I will be 'playing' with that.

Our youngest grandson who is 6 learn't to ride his ride a couple of days ago and he was so pleased he had 'cracked it' then I received a photograph from my daughter showing me a picture of him outside A nd E with his arm in a sling!   !  BUT  it wasn't that he'd fallen off his bike he had fallen off his scooter so another broken arm, last time it was his left arm...boys!!

The weather is still nice down here in Somerset albeit a little cooler but the sun is still shining...
