Hello all...busy busy as ever loads going on, Adams dad up at the moment visiting Adam and I really find this a struggle but for Adams sake I have to try and keep things as amicable as can be. Also still doing lots of gardening made a bird table and planted lots more plants so looking good out there. Looking forward to tomorrow though I hope to have a whole day crafting yippee hopefully do me some good.
Righty onto my card.....I'm ashamed to show it to be honest I think the bin would be more worthy of it haha but I'm hoping that you wonderful peeps can help me out here, I finally had a play with my new sewing machine and what a mistake that was think I shoulds stick to scissors lol!!! why oh why couldn't I sew in a straight line?????? I tried to go real slow but it wasn't happening so any help would be appreciated on how I can try better next time.
I am also entering this card into Allsorts where I followed this weeks sketch.

    'Fraid I can't really help with the sewing very much as I'm only getting to grips with my sewing machine too, but I did find this tutorial on Stamp TV quite useful:

  3. Hi Emma

    The stitching looks pretty good to me and it's a great card.

  4. Hi Emma I thought the wonky stitch look was in you don't find many cards with the perfect stitch lol. My mum always told me to try and line up with those lines on the bit where you put your bobbin in and to keep an even pressure on your foot peddle, it never helped me but it may you lol.
