Sharing

My son bought his lovely wife a sewing machine for Christmas. Yesterday we had some fun together learning how to use the new machine and Em made her first project. Some cute little coasters.


Just learning



 cute fabric
All finished... Lovely job.

Josh just had to have a go . A blast from the past from when he sat beside me when he was a little boy. 
It pleases my heart to see young people learning some sewing skills
A lovely machine
