Good morning, everyone, and a happy Sunday to you! My heart sank earlier (much earlier) when I peered through the curtains to be greeted by . . . rain! More rain, sigh! However, right now the rain clouds have rolled away and it's sunny and really cheerful. Fingers crossed it lasts.
I had a lovely day yesterday, mostly doing the same thing which was getting to know the sewing machine a bit better. Thanks to a whole series of YouTube clips, I sussed out the 'embroidery' part of the thing and stitched a whole set of 'samples' on some old cloth.
Here's one of them - I won't bore you with the lot!
Because it is old in sewing machine development terms, the lettering is very limited and there's no USB port but there is limited programming and I now know how to program in a set of patterns and letters.
What I would use it for, I have no idea at present, but it's fun to play with!
I now also know how to do various useful bits and bobs to make ordinary sewing easier.
Now I have to revise zips - the method has changed since I learned as a teenager - and how to use the buttonhole thingy. Maybe that's today's focus.
I also had a pleasant walk in the sunshine. It didn't feel warm until one was out of the wind and then it was very spring-like. I've just been to the shed and it's mild again. Long may it last!
That's about it for today. Nothing very exciting but I'm sure it will be a happy day and I hope yours is too. xx
