Architecture and Ceramics
This is my old sewing machine, a lovely New Home that I was given by my Aunty Maureen just after I moved to Edinburgh. It’s been a great machine, battling through curtains, blinds, jumpers, cusion covers and bags. I’ve broken it twice trying to do machine embroidery, and it just won’t take another service… it’s nearly 30 years old.
I feel pretty guilty for kicking it to the kerb for this new model but look at it, JUST LOOK AT IT. Decorative stitches, a walking foot, an automatic one-touch buttonhole maker, that can also make corded button holes, a darning foot for machine embroidery and a two year warranty :-DDD
I’m on it like a car bonnet embroidering everything in sight. I’ve been making these canvas panels by first using acrylic paint mixed with fabric paint medium to paint a masked-off shape onto a panel, then drawing a design onto freezer paper, iron on the reverse, and embroider away
The Pig approves. You’d be surprised, that is his Face Of Approval™.
