A good sewing machine

This is just a quick note. I haven’t posted anything here in a long time, haven’t been doing much DIY or not really bothered taking any good picture of my creations.

Tonight I worked on a christmas present for my mum. I’ll post some pictures soon, I’m so proud of this item.

It was the occasion for me to use my sewing machine, which I don’t get to do often enough. My machine is quite new, almost 2 years I think. It’s wonderful. It’s quiet, smooth, very simple to use and has lots of automatic options like button holes and sewing buttons. I’m amazed at how it makes the whole sewing experience way way more pleasant. Mind you, I always loved sewing, but it’s a bore when the machine doesn’t work properly, or is very loud and shakes the table around (my mum’s old one does that). My new-ish baby is perfect. I’m still learning how to use certain options and I love working out a new trick it can do.

The machine is out now, I really hope I’ll get to do more sewing in the next few months. I have a few projects lined up …
