Look what I made!

So after having to deal with this...

I finally got in & sorted out the chaos that was our spare room. My major battle was the fact that all this junk, well it's really not junk at all, has no where to live as our tiny little house is at maximum capacity. \

As soon as the room was tidy & Sahara, my little sweet cheeks, was down for a nap I got in & used my spanking new shiny Janome! I wanted to start small so I decided to create a crayon roll for my 4 year old nephew. Once I had finished it I knew I had the bug, the sewing bug!!!! I just wanted to jump right in & sew, sew, sew. I am so proud of myself, you see it has been some 11 or so years since I was even behind a sewing machine. That was back in high school when I took Home Economics.

I will admit something to you when my hubby bought home this beautiful new toy which my mum had gotten me as a surprise I was extremely anxious. Why you ask??? Well I'm the first to admit I've tried many a new hobby in the past & most have not gone far. I was quite nervous to try attempt my first project in fear I would find it all too hard & give up. But alas I think I succeeded in a BIG way. After I had completed the first crayon roll I just wanted to sew more, so I cut out the pieces last night & as soon as Sahara was down for a nap this morning i got in & whipped up 2 more. The blue/green star roll is the first one I did last night.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank my mum for having faith in me & investing in yet another of my hobbies. I promise you I will cherish her (my Janome) forever & create beautiful pieces on her.
