I'm giggling to myself as i am about to show you my nemesis, the one thing in my studio at this moment in time that has not been used by me and only used once in its whole history and that definitely wasn't me, it was my John.....he's a dab hand with what i'm about to show you but only went on it to show me how........scared isnt the word, im petrified of breaking it? I don't know and i can't explain it, but the fact that i am paying attention to it must be a good sign, right? So here 'he' is Captain Brother, lol!!!
This machine is brand spanking new!! I've had it over 5 years, but its new, ive never used it, its computerised with 60 lovely stitches on board!! All my adult life i wanted a sewing machine and i was never in the position to be allowed one, then, i met John, we married and he bought me this lil beauty and instead of getting stuck in there and having a go! I clammed up and havent been able to learn on it, or even switch it on! John did that for me too, this is a man who has in the past made full sets of velvet curtains, tie backs, valances, and blinds, and here's me can't even practice on an old sheet!!
Recently i got a studio as my son finally left home and left me with a little box room so i took it, due to my disabilities i cannot stand up too long and definitely can't lift anything heavy, so i had to wait to utilise it, but my John put up shelves, built shelving units and cupboard space and generally provided somewhere for me to craft, it isn't massive but its mine, all mine!!! I havent finished it yet, when i do, i will take pics and a video as promised, as i am one of those too..........the nosey crafter who loves nothing better than to have a nose around other crafters studios, lol, cant help it, im human!!! so shoot me!!
Anyway, i figured, looking at the Captain last night, that i would 'have a go' take it easy and do some stitching on my cards, and then progress to an apron to protect my clothes when im painting,( i paint, oils on canvas) inking and spritzing.....maybe a cushion cover and then maybe even a set of shabby chic curtains for the bedroom............who knows, wish me luck, Captain i'm coming after you!!!!LOL.....be afraid....be very afraid!!
Hugs, Vick xx
