Yesterday I learnt a new skill. I attended a workshop run by Jane. She makes beautiful tea cosies, cushions and other lovely textiles. I really wanted to learn how to 'write' with my sewing machine and I was fortunate as Jane did a class just for me at her home. I spent the morning practicing how to 'write'. I was pretty woeful at it. I was assured that it is all about getting the rhythm and speed of the machine in sync. The syncing did happen a couple of times with me, but I think that further practice is needed! Below is a photo of my efforts....
As you can see, my 'writing' is shaky but just occasionally it did come together. This is the top of my coffee cosy. The second 'e' is shaky as I was talking and not concentrating!
I came home absurdly pleased with my results. I now need to perfect the art of 'writing' with a sewing machine. I think that it will take a little time and patience though!
