There I thought Christmas would be quiet- no sewing – no crafting. But then, a friends grand-daughters received a lovely little sewing machine for Christmas and I had a lovely time helping them get started on a project.
Having experimented for what seemed like 30 seconds they were both ready to sew something – and that something was a cushion. Not any old cushion, but one with their initials appliqued on it!
I loved the no messing about approach – this is what we want and hey presto – it is done! Go for it girls.
And, if that was not all, in the space of a few days they had not only made cushions they had also made their thank you cards following a lovley afternoon fiddling with the Sissix machine and shiny papers.
There was lots of concentration…..
but it semmed to become increasingly evident that I was the one hooked on the Sissix machine!
Great fun and I look forward to seeing many more of the girls stitching and crafting projects in the months to come.
