Quick Quick Quick it's Dr Who
Didn't need a machine embroidery ring-apparently I was doing it all wrong anyway and a lovely lady at Hobby Craft explained to me how to get the extra lift on my sewing machinto create a bigger gap for the hoop to pass through. It seems I should also get a free motion foot for my NEW and VERY EXPENSIVE machine. Have been having a go without and the results are improving.
I am now in my sixties and despite being diagnosed with fibromyalgia several years ago I am enjoying myself more than ever because I don't care what other people think of me anymore. It's the "when I am old I will wear purple" syndrome.
Have been papercrafting for over 18 years but I've loved making things as long as I can remember. My granny taught me to knit and my Mum let me have all her leftover bits of fabric to make clothes for my dolls. My sister still has stuff I made for her Sindy doll!
Got bit by the stamping bug -you know that magic moment when the embossing powder turns into gold. Love making bags boxes and envelopes as well as cards.
