Patchwork sewing!


My new sewing machine came yesterday. I love it! I ordered it from Sewing Machines Direct. Fab service. Russell emails you if you have any queries regarding anything, he is a great help. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Free next day delivery too!


Here is a pic of my lovely machine! Plus, you also get the free 5 pairs of scissors, and all those spools of thread which I’ve put in a box. 50 spools of 1000 metre thread!

q02Here is a pic of what I’ve been fiddling with today. It’s a Christmas table runner. I bought the charm pack from Quilttaffy’s Etsy shop. The fabric is from BasicGrey and called Fruitcake. I have ordered the wadding today, and I have some cream cotton that I can back it with. The charm pack came as 5 inch cut squares, and I then cut them to 2.5 inch strips. As this is my first project I didn’t want anything too big or complicated to start with. The next picture shows that my patches don’t meet up, but who cares?! I made it for us and for fun.



I can’t wait to buy another charm pack now!!
