Hello! I'm still about. The weekend before last I was off to Birmingham to visit my mum and got a lovely Lanarte cross stitch kit and some fabrics for my patchwork, both of which I'll be showing off soon. Last Thursday was my birthday, and I was lucky enough to get a sewing machine, so I've been busy trying that out.
I played around a bit with the machine over the last few days, but today I tried to sew something properly. I used Love Letter Mini Clutch tutorial from Sew Together, but decided not to add the strap, and was daring and added a buttonhole!
As you can see in the first photo, I'm using it to keep my patchwork hexagons and some threads in. I am terribly pleased with myself.
