I'm determined to sew. I have'nt done so for years..................
I recently started to tackle my mending pile. I loved sitting there quietly hand sewing away. Baby steps.
Last year a friend gave me the gorgeous jar above, filled with sewing bits and pieces to get me started. She also included vintage cotton reels and lace. I love it and up until now have never wanted to use it. It's like the lovely notebooks I buy, too pretty to use.
I have my sister's old sewing machine and have had it serviced. I'm already to go. I just need to fill my vintage sewing basket that I found in an op shop. It's huge and has loads of space.
So lovely readers, what are the must haves that I will need for my sewing basket? Good basics to get me going.
I'm a huge fan of anything Cath Kidston and have her book Sew. There are so many projects in here that I want to try.
I will keep you updated on my "doings" - good and not so.
Wish me luck!!!
