It has been a long time
Wow, has it really been this long? I think I know the reason...we had the most amazing weather since March, lots of sunshine and hardly any rain = lots of outside play and hardly any sewing + 5th birthday, visit from parents and Holidays and the result is no blogging for months.
But just to show my cousin that I have not been lazy, here is the quilt I made for my sister's godchild. I followed an idea I have seen on Little Birdie Secret's blog, it was so much fun and didn't take ages. And I am working on a couple of surprises for my sister's wedding.
One very important event in the last two weeks: my new sewing machine arrived. It is a Silver Viscount 1050 (really helpful shop and best price I could find) and I love it. I don't know how it compares to the big brands but it seems fantastic value for money. So far it does more than I thought it would and I feel like a kid in a toy shop trying out all the functions it comes with. Isn't it sad that I get excited that I can write by sewing, no mare iron in labels for my girls!
