I had a wonderful surprise yesterday, my husband took me out for our anniversary to see Dirty Dancing at the Birmingham Hippodrome and it was amazing! I've never been to a show before and I was sooooo excited, the whole evening was magical and I've got the bug now and want to go to see more shows lol!
It's Friday and that means another
challenge with a fab theme of
Back to School
I usually struggle with this theme, but there are loads of challenge blogs with the same idea at the minute and after blog hopping I was totally inspired to make something new! I decided to make a binder for my four year old daughter as a keepsake as she starts school in a couple of weeks - eeek, my kids are growing up too fast!
My sewing machine got another outing on this project and think the stitching finishes it off perfectly - I know it's nothing new in the crafting world but it's a big deal to me as I have had my sewing machine since Christmas (and wanted one long before that) and have only just plucked up the courage to use it, and I also had some teething troubles with it as I had cheap cotton which kept breaking. To get the perfect stitching around the image I turned the handwheel manually instead of using the foot pedal, my wrist ached afterwards but it was so worth it!
