A new sewing machine

I finally succumbed to my need for a new sewing machine and bought this one from Tesco Direct. I have to go and pick it up from a local store on Monday to avoid paying a delivery charge. It wasn't as cheap as I'm sure its possible to get them, but I've had a bit of design work recently and decided to treat myself with my proceeds from that. I don't suppose its a very good model but it'll be fine for papercrafting which is what I want it for predominantly anyway.

My brother and his friend are up visiting at the moment, and I have to admit that I am now fully overloaded on Grand Theft Auto - it may be an amazing game, but I'm bored to tears with it! I have decided to leave them to it tonight - boys and their toys!
If the weather is good tomorrow, we might go out and enjoy it, but after that I'm hoping to get on with some serious scrapping - it will be the first 'personal' scrapping I will be able to do for ages as I have got all the outstanding DT work out of the way. I've got more coming shortly, but in the meantime hopefully I'll be able to make a dent in some of the kits I've got stacked up here. The trouble is, everytime I think about cancelling, the next kit looks just too tempting - what's a girl to do?! I might have to sell a couple of them on the UKS marketplace, purely to gain some floor space back again...
I'll update again over the weekend, with some pages to share if I'm lucky :)


  1. Enjoy your sewing machine. I really would love to buy one too but first I want to save some money.
    Love, Isolde

  2. Yay for the new machine. I was a lucky girl and got given mine from Steve's Gran. It is fab and I would have to rush out and buy a replacement if it went to sewing machine heaven!
    Anywho, have a fab week, gotta dash loads to do!
