I happened to mention to my sister that I have been looking for a sewing machine. Did she know anyone who was giving one away. She turned to me and said "i've got one that ive used twice and you can have it on long term loan" You should have seen my face! I've been waiting 3 weeks to get my hands on it as my Mum and Dad had it in there spare room, yesturday I picked it up!
Hubby its taking me to John Lewis today to get all the bits I need to make my first make. I don't know what its going to be yet. I'm to excited!


  1. Oh wow, looking forward to seeing what you make. In our family most of our furniture is on long term loan to each other!

  2. Thats one kind sister :)

    Enjoy your trip to JL - remember its not possible to have too much fabric/thread/ribbon etc ;)

  3. What a lovely thing for your sister to do!!!

    I have just purchased my first sewing machine and I am still trying to be brave enough to have a go. I have prepared everything I want to make - now for the nitty gritty and actually sewing them.

    Hope you have a nice time a JL!!!

  6. Well no excuses now, and by the sound of the shopping trip no stopping you.
    So glad you got in touch about the blog meet. Keep the afternoon free as we may be able to alter the time a bit, and if not I will definitely be in Peterborough until at least 5pm and would love to meet you!
    Will be back in touch when we have a better idea of how many are coming.
