Welcome to my new blog!
With most of the women in my family avid crafters it was inevitable that finally I would follow in their foot steps.
Recently, I've started to turn my hand at a few different crafts- mainly quilting and cross stitch.
I've created this blog to track my projects and to share my ups and downs.
After using my nana's sewing machine for a few months it was pretty clear that I had fallen for quilting. So for christmas I had a little word with santa investing in my new sewing machine. A Janome. Here it is ....
If your anything like me having a new gadget to play with is pretty exciting. This sewing machine is awesome I would totally recommend it to any newbe. As a novice I have found this sewing machine easy to use with loads of handy tools to help you out- I especially love the hare to tortoise tool as it stops me from going way too fast when pressing the peddle.
This weekend I desided to make the patchwork heart kit I had recently bought.
I've never really been one to follow instructions properly especially when they aren't very clear so I basically chose to attempt this one blind and thankfully the end product was totally worth it.
I made the back plain with calico and finished with a button and ribbon.
