A slight obsession with books

Reading and Fibrecrafts


I’m getting more and more interested in sewing and quilting so it looks like I need a page for finished projects. I just had a cheap and cheerful sewing machine which I originally got for sewing on scrapbooking pages and turning up the odd pair of curtains. Ok, one pair of curtains. I’ve never learned how to sew or use a machine properly.

Seeing all the beautiful things that Tree creates, made me want to learn to use my sewing machine though, so I started off gently by using some fabric to frame some cross stitch projects and then moved on to a very small quilted cushion. I sort of made that up as I went along.

Then a new quilting magazine came out and I came over all inspired as the projects looked as if I might be able to do them. I subbed to the mag and have made a start on making some of the lovely things inside the covers.

I’ve now invested in a new sewing machine so plan to start making some projects that aren’t cushions as the sofas are getting quite full now.
