A few weeks back I was offered an industrial Singer Sewing machine!
She was originally a factory girl, retired long ago!
I call her ‘The Beast’!
She weighs an absolute tonne (it took 3 men to carry her upstairs!) and sounds like a jumbo jet taking off (I hope the neighbours don’t mind)!
But boy can she sew, through super thick layers like denim! And she’s fast too, so I’d better keep my fingers well out of the way!
And the latest Brit Bee block I’ve been working on, was a complete Beast to make (!) but turns out is a Beauty for who I was making it for.
|30″ x 15″|
This block was designed by our Brit Bee Mama Laura Jane (who has just recently become a mama herself!!) and took a lot of patience, unpicking and even more patience! It is by far the most involved block we have made in Brit Bee so far and my attempt is perfectly imperfect!
|Love these wee doggies!|
I was making for Fiona, in her choice of colours, and I’ve had the thumbs up from Fi (phew!).
So it looks like my ‘beasts’ have inner beauty after all!!
