Definitely a this'n'that post...

This week I've been...

...really enjoying the machine embroidery course I'm on - really good to get the machine out again. Here are some shots or a piece I made with the intention of cutting it up to make something else - but I like it too much to cut it up so I'll have to make another one to cut up!

... realising that its not just me that multi-tasks - its my kitchen too! lol (under all that stuff in the picture on the left is a hob... somewhere! lol)

... cooking with goose eggs - look at the size of those lovely things!!!! and they taste good too! The shells are REALLY hard - can't just wack the egg on the edge of the pan like you would a chicken egg - the pan would come off worse! lol

..... been dying fabric ready for using with machine embroidery.

... getting ready for a busy few months at work.
... enjoying the sunshine - everything seems so much better, easier, achievable when its sunny doesn't it?!


  1. Love the embroidery Jo. V pretty colours. How'd you get those perfect circles on a machine?!

    I'm with you on the sunshine :-)

  2. just go round and round and and round and round.. and round - eventually it becomes a good circle! hopefully! lol (practice and more luck than judgement!?)

  3. ooh, sorry forgot to mention the important bit! drop the feeder feet, take the foot off and free machine. (also put the fabric in an embroidery hoop to keep it tight) Love it! (and keep your fingers away from the needle!)
