Dolls, Cards & I’m Spoilt

2018.1.16 My Pressy From HubbyI have been spoilt as hubby treated me this morning to a lovely lavender sewing machine.  We were in Aldi when I saw it and it cost the great sum of £19.99 ( for my friends in the US that’s about 27 to 28 us dollars lol).  I am not planning on a new wardrobe or making a heirloom quilt but for just making up stitched ornaments I think it will be ideal.  Mind I have only just unpacked it – as you can see the plug etc are still in the little bags they came in.  I still have to learn to use it ha ha – that will be fun.

From sewing to stitching and here was the progress I made last week on Kokeshi Dolls.2018.1.14

I completed the 2nd doll and decided to leave it there and go back to Garden Alphabet as next weekend will be SAL Sunday.

I am working hard on cards, mainly for me at the moment, with lots of birthdays coming up in February and March.  These are ones for friends and family that do not read my blog – I think I only have one birthday (in March) for a blog reader.  I am not going to comment on them I will just share and hope you enjoy looking.2A3A4A25A16A1DSCF5757DSCF5758DSCF5759DSCF5762DSCF57682211That’s all for now folks, and I will be back on Sunday with my Sal Update.

Hugs to you all


About stitchingranny

I am one of those people who need to have busy hands so whether its stitching or papercrafting, I am always doing something. I also love being in the garden, though hubby does most of the work there these days.

    some beautiful cards ^^ and ooooooh you’re going to have so much fun with your new sewing machine! Is this your first? It looks lovely and dinky. Look forward to seeing what you make with it.


  2. You may not see anything for a while as I really want to have time to spend reading all it does and how to do it first. I used to sew many years ago, made my own and my SILs wedding dresses and things for my daughter when she was small but then I lost the inclination and when I finally tried again I got in a right mess (bearing in mind my daughter is now in her 40’s I am definitely out of practice. I gave my old machine to my daughter in law but as she uses it a lot I hadn’t the heart to ask for it back lol.

    What a cute little machine, Helen! You’ll have fun with that I bet! And the cards, as always inspiring and just lovely. You put you heart into them and it shows. 😊
