Bah Humbug!

Well that's it over for another year! Christmas, and I was back at work again yesterday. Bah Humbug!!

 Again I haven't been posting much, no excuses from me, I'll admit it. I'm lazy. I have been reading other peoples blogs though. That has been my greatest experience of 2010- getting into blogging. I love all the inspiration I get from seeing what other people get up to. I don't think I could ever make anything without the inspiration, it doesn't come naturally to me.

2010 has also been the year of the SEWING MACHINE! At school I failed my sewing machine test, the only person in the class. I didn't get it, it frustrated me, so I hated it. My mum had one at home and regularly made things but I loathed them, fast forward 20 years, I hit 31 and something inside me wanted to sew. Sewing is amazing, you can make anything from nothing, create so many fabulous things.
2011 is the year I get GOOD AT SEWING!

Well if those are some samples of what you have achieved so far 2011 is going to be a doddle. For me 2011 is going to be the year I make what I really want to make, not always what I have promised too or have been paid to do. So watch this space.
Have a great and productive New Year.

your sewing makes are fab. I assumed you were a natural with a machine. That's just inspired me to learn to use one. I'm terrified of the things. I only passed my sewing machine test at school because I got one of the boys to do my test patch thing for me while the teacher's back was turned. In fact the same boy helped me make a photo frame in woodwork. I'm not very practical, but I'm slowly learning x
