Not such a good one here - somewhat damp and dreadful - but that's okay ... I have a scrap page to complete and my new sewing machine to play with too :)
They're not perfect, and I beg you not to enlarge and scrutinise them too closely, but I'm chuffed to bits with them. I've figured it out that it's about 20 years since I did any serious sewing with a machine. For a variety of reasons ... a series of life changing events, my old and much loved machine finally giving up the ghost (probably due to neglect) and then the acquisition of the 'machine from hell' were all contributory factors. A new machine that performs like a dream and here I am sewing again ... albeit on very small practice projects.
I didn't have a template so I opened up the MS Publisher software and imported the heart from the 'autoshapes' function. Sized it up to fit an A4 sheet and printed it off ... it is not a perfect heart shape as I discovered but it got me started. Some scraps of fabric - bought for cardmaking purposes - matching thread, a length of lace and some gold ribbon and we have two hearts. Oh, and I opened up an unused pillow and pinched some of the stuffing!
The resident hunter/gatherer has just arrived home ready for lunch so I'm off to join him but I will be back ... there's that scrap page to complete :)
Hope you are enjoying rather better weather and having a good Monday,
