I've been thinking of getting a sewing machine for a while now (each time Dave asks me to hand sew anything in fact!) and when I spotted these mini machines in John Lewis they seemed perfect so onto my list to Santa they went.
I must have been a good girl as there was one in my stocking (or should that be pillowcase?) on Christmas Day but what with entertaining and our New Year holiday last night was the first chance I got to use it.
It took me ages to work out how to thread the thing but once it was done I managed to sew a little scrap of material and am well chuffed! My first task is to make some napkins..... how hard can they be???
