I am very excited, finally found out how to get a "Title" section for my posts so you can click directly on me in Bloglines without opening a new tab....for those other people who I see having the same trouble it is in the formatting section, you just tick 'yes' instead of 'no' for the title section question. I know, not like solving world famine but was annoying me anyway!
We have been having a few little family sewing sessions to try out the $69 Aldi sewing machine that I bought for my girl to learn on. It goes quite well, just have to remember to pull more thread out the back because it unthreads itself if I just leave a Janome amount.
Here is my boy working on his log cabin chook....a disclaimer here, the kids chose their fabrics and would not be influenced and as I just wanted them to sew I closed my mouth re light and dark!
Isn't some lucky woman going to love me!!! (While his sister watches TV in between sewing turns!) Look, he irons!!
And very intently as well!
It grew very impressively....
....into the brownish one here. The blue is his sisters and they are very proud!
If you haven't seen these before they are in my tutorial links in the sidebar.
And just to show you that my boy's life is suitably rounded, here is where he spent the rest of his holidays!
watching this fun......
and standing waiting longingly with the bike for the time when the flames were receding enough for him to safely join in!! (His mother went through about 4 years of very little sleep with that child-she would prefer he safely reached adulthood!!)
And finally, my sister had this at her house...should it be the quilter's motto?
Have a great day, I am off to the Church Picnic in the morning! Tracey
