It's been nearly 3 months since my last post. I haven't updated mainly because I haven't really had chance to get any sewing done. I made a pair of spats for a friend, but not much else. I've been distracted with work and family stuff and watching a cartoon about a Metal band on dvd >.>
I've nearly finished a project I started working on as a sample for a class. After explaining the difference between Machine Embroidery and Free Motion Embroidery the ladies in my class asked if they could try some FME. I searched the internet for ideas for a project and found 'Girl on a tree swing' by Aneela Hoey http://comfortstitching.typepad.co.uk/comfortstitching/2010/01/raw-edge-applique-tutorial.html My ladies have long finished their's but here is mine so far
One of my New Years Resolutions was to go and see more stuff live. So I have tickets for a Romeo and Juliet ballet and T-rextasy (T-rex tribute band. I've seen them twice before and they are really good) at the newly re-opend local theatre and tickes for one of my favourite bands, a Hair Metal band from Sweden, in Newcastle as they are not coming to Scotland.
I am also trying to get back into the doll hobby. I'm going to order a new 1/3 scale Ball Jointed Doll before the company discontinue the sculpt I want, and I want to work on my 1/6th scales (Barbie sized), but I'll try and keep this as a sewing blog and not over do the doll stuff here :)
