New Blogger on the Block!

I don't know about you but, I always feel that I'm always trailing behind when it comes to technology. Although not totally technically challenged, I don't always get it.

I am totally new to all of this Blogging!!  So if you come across my blog hopefully you will find it entertaining if nothing else.

I love to make things and have really caught the sewing bug recently.  My lovely husband bought me a sewing machine at Christmas (under instruction!) and I have amazed myself, a complete novice at the little steps I have taken already.

I must say a BIG thank you to Tracey.  She is a lovely lady who has recently opened her sewing shop in Eastbourne called The Owl and The Sewing Cat and what a wonderful source of inspiration it is.

I wandered into her shop on a Saturday morning and was welcomed with a smile, and when I mentioned that I was completely new to sewing and had never used a machine before, she very kindly sat down with me there and then and showed me how to make my very own pin cushion on one of the machines in her shop. Now I know that a pin cushion, and a square one at that sounds a little too simple, but for someone that had never sewn anything before, it was a huge kick start to what has become a bit of an obsession with fabric and patterns!!

I hope you find some inspiration from what is to come on my blog to create your own wonderful things to fill your home with.

After all, it's nice not to have a reason for having things, other than you just think they are pretty.  It's also even better if you are able to recycle what you have into something new.

As it is my first post, if anyone out there has read this, I would like to say Hello! and that I hope to get better and add more info as I go along.
