Taking Stock

I decided that when I start back in January I want to start with everything new, the Machine is now on order, and quite frankly the last time I bought a decent pair of scissors is longer than I remember, The last pair of Fiskars I bought cost about £14.00 today they cost a staggering £26.00!!!! I also invested in a £16.00 sharpner, I did hesitate but thought i'd give it a go.....well i'm quite annoyed to be honest that £16.00 sharpner has returned my 15 year old scissors back to as new condition.......I could have saved £26.00!!!! LOL

New machine!

Well some very heavy interlined curtains saw the end of my faithful Elna, well not the end i'm sure a good service will have her running like new again! but it has proven since I sold my Industrial Brother machine, the Elna is being put under too much pressure, after lengthy investigation I have decided on the Janome 1600, if anybody has one I would love to know what they think of it! Hope your all having a great Christmas! X

Going well...

Well just a quick update so you don't think i've forgotten you all! Here are a few pics of the curtains I have been making, some of them finished some of them bagged up to be delivered, it's all going very well! I seem to have more work than I can cope with, and hopefully if it carries on I might be able to get an extra pair of hands to help! I am working weekends and evenings but it's worth it, I forgot how nice it was to be in control of my time again, I have even been able to meet friends for the odd lunch date! I am now starting to take pics of every project that passes through the workroom, I will start posting these regularly.
