Stampin' Up! Pincushion

Well now for something completely different.....................Back in January I told my class ladies that 2012 was the year I was going to finally learn how to sew with a sewing machine. I was kindly given a little machine by someone but when we came to try it out last week we discovered it was no longer working. A quick trip to our local sewing machine guy and I am now the very proud owner of a different machine. It isn't a new machine but I love it already and I am sure it will become my new best friend over the coming months as I finally learn how to sew.

I had my first ever sewing lesson today with friends, and look at what I created, My very own pincushion ready for all the sewing I am going to be attempting from here on in. I know it isn't exactly the most intricate piece of sewing but it was a first for me with a sewing machine and I was thrilled to bits that I managed to make ANYTHING at all. I have also made another small project but that one isn't quite finished yet..... however I WILL have it done by the weekend.

The best thing about my first attempt is that I have used some of my little hoard of Stampin' Up fabric and I know I will be "needing" lots more.

Well off out now so must dash. I will be back by the weekend to share my other stitched project.
