Thought I should try out my brand new, super duper lightweight sewing machine and seeing that I haven't made anything (apart from a pair of curtains) on my old machine for at least 20 years I was itching to get going.
Not for me the 'try out all the stitches and make a rough prototype first' school, so straight in and use some of that pretty fabric I bought a couple of months ago when I first started thinking about a new machine.
So here is is, my first 'proper' piece of sewing in I don't know how long - a cover/pouch/bag for my Kindle.
Rain just starting here as I type and the forecast is not good for the weekend so my beautiful rose bush will probably get battered, again, and when that happens it bows down to the floor so here are a couple of photos of it in all it's present glory.
....and a close up, complete with greenfly (I never, ever spray).
Have a good weekend everyone, despite the weather.
