Necessity is the mother of inspiration

My latest creation is for my glasses case. I have had to start with reading glasses – I even had to wear them for sewing. Eeeeek I have come to the realisation that age may be catching up with me – oh what happened to my twenties? ( see the Freudian slip i talked about last time!)

I now wish I had finished my cross stitch sampler that I put away a year or so ago – or more like 2 or 3 years -my eyesight was probably good enough to stitch the fine linen then and now I don’t look forward to getting it out – it will just be a reminder of time passing.

Anyway at least I enjoyed the free motion sewing on the machine – I think it’s a matter of confidence but I quite liked the way the leaves looked. My idea is that I can free motion some motifs for quilt pieces ….at least that’s the idea.
