Snug......

Another knitting update, I made my scarf!

I think I got a bit carried away and knitted on for longer than need be (I have to fold it in half to wear it, unless it's really cold then I can just peep over the top) 

This infinity scarf was a really good way of practicing my stitches. I alternated between knit, purl, rib and moss every four or so rows, two balls of wool later..........


Maybe if I start soon I could make a good Christmas jumper for Mr M?....

Sew what......

I was handed down this Singer machine just before Christmas and as I've been using a machine on loan it was great to finally have my own. The past week has been a challenge to actually get it working properly. 
A few shouting sessions, a couple of tweets begging for help and one download of the manual later and I have a perfectly good little runner.....


So this weekend I got going on an idea I've had for ages. I've always made my own cushion covers at home so thought I'd combine them with my Stamp and Stitch designs and see how they go in my Etsy shop
I started off with a rainbow cloud....


and then, being in the month of luuurve and all, went for a heart design.....



Both soon to be added to the S&S Etsy shop and new designs and colours coming too....this sewing machine's going to be steaming!
