after my first project with the old sewing machine from freecycle i decided that i needed a better machine than a machine my dear mum would have had and in fact did have one many years ago. so after much searching i bought a lovely sewing machine, it arrived on tuesday but due to work i couldnt have a play until wednesday evening. so there was me all day wednesday cutting out 5 inch squares of my lovely material for my first quilt project, i was so excited about playing with my machine, so come the evening i plugged it in and set it up but the bloody thing wouldnt work properly, 3 hours later still no success so i packed it up, this morning i phoned up the help line and this lovely man told me what to try, if it didnt work then i was to phone him back and he would arrange for it to be picked up and he would send me out a new one. anyway i tried what he suggested and lo and behold i got it going, perfectly. so here is my first quilt i made today, well ok its the top as i need to buy the wadding and back material. i love it and i am quite proud of my first machine stitched quilt and i know it wont be my last.sorry about the side angle lol.
