The sewing machine has arrived. I am looking at it as I type.
Now all I need to do is clear a space to use the thing. If I clear the big wooden table then it will be ideal for sewing and cutting out. To do that I need to clear my dining room. It's going to take days.
I just deleted a huge lump of text explaining exactly why getting it all sorted is going to take ages. I am determined to write only positive. I have something to aim for. I don't want to spend £58.65 plus the money for the old duvet covers and just waste it. I am looking forward to learning something new.
On another note, the local church runs a card making group on Monday evenings. I am a bit reluctant as I am not keen to get into another craft, but I may do it in a lukewarm fashion. I think it is important for bear to see that mums do go out, and it is just at the end of the street and unlikely to be expensive. I am thinking about that. I shall hold fire on that, though, until the sewing machine is up, running and productive!
I'll keep you posted.
