Is this thing on?

I know, I'm a style icon.

Picture the scene, if you will. Christmas, 2012. A very lucky lady receives a sewing machine. (That’s me, btw.) Said lucky lady realises she doesn’t have a clue what to do with it, or even how to switch it on.

Join me in my adventures of learning how to sew; starting with the the inevitable¬† ineptitude and wonky bits, until we get to where I hopefully end up making things that won’t be received through gritted-teeth smiles from faux-grateful relatives.

Expect broken needles, over-ambitious attempts, and some decidedly dodgy appliqu√© (“it’s shabby chic! OK, OK, it’s just crap.”)

Oh, and I hereby solemnly promise that I will never ever make a floppy-disc cover again, seeing as that’s the only thing I’ve ever sewed. In Year 10 at school. Which was about 10 years ago. It was rubbish.

Hooray! Bear in mind this picture was taken at 6am, before you judge me too harshly.
