Sewing Day

Got the sewing machine out today!  First time a quite a few years!  One big problem was that the eye of the needle had shrunk quite considerably in that time!  How did that happen :)!!!

It lives in a very 70s quaint wicker basket, but it still works perfectly!

Made some little pin cushions, just for starters.  Really love this fabric!

Found some old thread - didn't even realise I had this - think it was from Mum's sewing box.  She had her original sewing kit from when she was in the WAAFs - wonder what happened to that!

Keeping the machine out - going to make lots more stuff!

Love, Liz

Sweet little pin cushions in fab fabric. I collect old wooden cotton reels and have a definite aversion to modern plastic ones! x

What lovely little pincushions! Yes, indeed, funny how the eye of the needle seems to get smaller over the years! :) Love Brenda
