Last weekend was a monumentous one in the Frost ~ Morris (my last name for the considerable near future) household. I learned how to sew! It must sound crazy to all you pro sewers but as I'm only 21 I think I'm still quite young to take it up. And I'm loving it!
I always knew I wanted to be able to sew ~ I asked for a sewing machine for my 20th birthday. And I got it but I just haven't had the time to get aquainted with it until NOW! And now there's nothing stopping me. I've picked up a fair few sewing books in local charity shops and have some on order from Amazon but the best teacher would have to be my Mother! Who made her own wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses from scratch ~ and numerous other articles.
So here are a few things that I've managed so far
1) A panel blind for the kitchen window. In Laura Ashleys Duck Egg Blue gingham ( which I hasten to add I got it for 1/2 price in the remnants section ~ a steal as the cashier couldn't understand why it was so cheap as it had just come in ~ I bought it about two years ago!)
Simple projects to get me started!
I also want to make curtains to cover the fridge and freezer under the worktops and the washing machine as I hate seeing modern appliances ( I don't know why!) but I rather think Calum will not agree to that. A bit to frilly!
So that the kitchen done in the fabric department ~ can't wait for the whole room to be finished and to be able to show it off.
~ This one's been made from a vintage scottish woolen blanket that had a tear in it. I love turning old things into something new and usable.
Off to meet my Mum tomorrow and heading to Edinburgh to visit my Gran. Hoping to get a chance to visit the Kinross Saturday flea market and charity shops in Stockbridge ~ Edinburgh.
Hope you all have a great weekend girls!
