Spring is officially here, but no-one seems to have informed the weather! It's getting colder again and more snow is expected this weekend. However I have a touch of spring indoors with these tulips that my students gave me yesterday. It was my last morning teaching before we head to the US in a few weeks.
I'm going to spend those weeks getting to know my new sewing machine:
It is really very good and hasn't taken as much getting used to as I thought it might, although to be fair I haven't tried out all its gizmos.
I whipped up a purse just to test it out!
Just the right size for passport and phone and a few other bits and bobs. Made using the Keyka Lou (Michelle Patterns) zip pocket pouch pattern.
Then I tried out the quilting foot and it works like a dream - no more issues with 1/4" seams as the foot has a built-in fabric guide. Perfect (well, apart from my substandard ironing - but I can fix that!).
I think a new iPad sleeve is next on the list. If anyone wants me, I'm sewing!!
