Well What I thought would be an easy project gave me some grief !! I decided to make some little shirred dresses for My wee grand daughter Talula, My machine just wouldn't play ball, I could not get the tensuin right while doing the shirring , I finally changed to a smaller machine my faithful little Jem 760 and it did it no trouble at all. !! I will make several of these as where she lives it is already 35 ---- to 40 most days

My friends the Sewing Sisters, we call ourselves started a Mystery Medallion, Iresisted for a while but it has got the better of me.!! So here is my centre medallion, another compass. Paper pieced of course, now I have to turn it on point and add some logcabin, then some Dresden plates and thena diamond border, My head is spinning... I'm way behind but hey it's not a race !!
At my sewing group we had a lesson in how to make a pattern and make our own zippered bag, These are great for keeping your thread snips and rotary cutter and other sewing bits and pieces together. AND the zipper is sewn in by hand, well I thought mine would fall to bits very quickly, hand sewing has always been a bit of a dirty word!! but look heres mine and its really neat !!
