Morning lovely crafters. After the beautiful sunshine of the last few days it has spoilt itself today and turned grey and cold. Still, it means I can crack on and try and get all these half finished jobs done without the temptation to be outside all the time.
I'm not joining in with WOYWW today as it's half term here and I really am determined not to be distracted by other things and whittle down the to do list but I'm currently half way through my second Lillybo quilt and couldn't leave today without showing you the work in progress and my heirloom sewing machine.
It belonged to my Mum and is probably as old as me. When she upgraded to a sparkly new one about 10 years ago she passed it on to me in the vain hope that I may do more sewing I think. I have used it for turning up curtains and very simple things but it has sat in the cupboard for years very much unloved. I surprised myself when I got it out for quilt making the other week that I could actually remember how to thread it up and use it properly. The only down side is that it's soooo heavy that I have to have a strong man about to lift it onto the table for me.
Well, that me today so thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying the week whatever you are up too
