after 3 hours on skype with my sister, I now know how to use Mum's sewing machine :).... before tonight I had never used skype and I have to admit that I am 100% sold on skype... I love it... it was the best way to learn how to use Mum's sewing machine (and for the record the reason it took so long and my hubby had to step in to try and rethread again was because the stitch was set on the wrong setting)
I am so excited now to start some of the sewing projects that I have been hording over the past couple of months and dying to use...yay!!!! first thing tomorrow morning I'm going fabric shopping!!!!
