My sewing machine has arrived. I lurve it. Have only had a go at doing some different stitches. What I like about it is the fact it tells you what foot you need and it automatically sets to the right size stitch. The booklet is quite helpful and I have stitched an invisible hem for the first time.

The delivery guy said he had never delivered this product before and today he delivered 2. I expect there is a lot of people sewing today. :lol:

Ooh that the sounds fancy. Mine isn't as posh as that. It does have needle threader and I also like the fact that you can choose to stop with the needle down. So no faffing with wheel.. Also I would imagine that you have auto buttonhole as well...that is really good. You just put button in the attachment and it does it all for you.

Been watching Debbie shore videos today.

I've been forced to work for the past 2 days. :( But I did start to make a bag with some fabric I bought 16 years ago. I'm having a bit of trouble with the tension when I do zig-zag but now I have time to have a play I shall hopefully be able to work it out.

Takes a bit of working out to find your best place. I am convinced mine just got a bit better once I had used it a bit, as didn't change it much.

I have caught up on all of the episodes I have missed. Can't say there was much to inspire me. They seem to be focusing on cloth kits a lot.
