This weekend, I received another heirloom from my parents' attic of treasures. This is one of many sewing boxes in their house, they have about 5 or 6 as most of the women in my family have enjoyed sewing, but this was a box I hadn't seen before. It has been commented that it looks a bit like a snake charmer's basket, but inside were all sorts of wonderful random things.
Aside from the box of wonders, it's been a bit quiet on the sewing front lately. I did my practice, I worked out most of the parts of the sewing machine...but now I have no idea what to make. I'm at such an early stage of learning that anything I make won't be all that great, but I need to make something to start off, but then I don't want to make something important in case I ruin it with my lack of skill, but I need to make something...bit of a vicious circle. So I'm partly procrastinating, and partly looking at my other hobbies.
I mentioned in the blog description that I make cards every now and then, and I was super pleased with this 'Wicked' themed card I made for my best friend's birthday, also this weekend. This is the unfinished version, I stuck 'Happy Birthday' across the bottom once it was all stuck into place...and then didn't take any pictures. But this is definitely my best hand made card yet.
