Adventures with Little Miss



I have a Singer – Do You?

I finally received the sewing machine this weekend when I was visiting the family for my little sister’s birthday and Easter.

My WONDERFUL Aunt has lent me her Singer Sewing machine, to learn on and if I like the whole Sewing craft then I will save up and buy myself one. I practiced on it with the assistance of both my Mother (teaching us) and my always interested Sister. Mum set it all up and said this is what you do… Now Do It! I did!!

Mum gave me some felt (which are crazy colours) and some sewing accessories to start me off. I have taken some books out from the local library and I will now be able to have some sewn gifts for my Hand Made Pledge.

I did not knit at all this weekend since I was recouping from my hand injury! I am all better now… It is still swollen, although I am able to move my fingers and type.

Well I am off to read some Sewing patterns from the Purl Bee, if you have any recommendations for pretty & free patterns OR sewing related tips and tricks Please let me know!

    Well now you just got to come over and well do some crafting together. I can easily move my kitchen table to the side and I have at least 2 folding tables we can set up so we can sew facing each other. *plus, I just picked up some sewing books last night. I promise to let you look through them. You’re welcome to come over any time. Tonight?
