Autumn again

After 2 days at the Knit & Stitch Exhibition at Alexandra Palace at the beginning of the month Roxy and I received our new sewing machines this week - how exciting! After trying out a few at the K&S we are now owners of Pfaff Creative 2.0's - Rox has already been playing with hers but mine is only out the box as I am loathe to move my beloved old Bernina 830 from my workbench and will have to sort out an extra foldout table affair to accommodate both in my sewing room. We have been notified by BUST magazine that they are hosting another Craftacular in Bethnal Green in December so we are going to submit some photos and hope we get picked to have a stall again... with sofa throws, cushions and sundry interesting items hopefully... I have also managed to acquire a lovely old set of signmakers' wood and rubber stamps after many attempts to win one on ebay - this set is in a lovely old box and has both right and left pointing hands which I lurvvve..... have been playing with all my stamps on old thick calico and stitching...dirty flies and flying swallows...
