Yesterday I got my sewing machine out and wanted to experiment on some old fabric, but the stitches kept knotting up, I must have been there an hour trying to sort the problem out. Eventually I went onto YouTube, it was either that or chuck the machine out of the window in frustration, and I found a very basic "how to" video. I re-threaded the machine, I had the thread around the wrong hook, and tested the tension (in a way I had never thought of doing) and hey presto! The lesson here is stop being a clever dick and seek help!!
Then I did a few hand sewn bits, experimenting with a very basic strawberry and owl shape
Oh yes, Christmas in July ; D
