One finished, one to go

So I finally framed my Home Sweet Home stitch and its hanging in the spare room.
This is the progress Ive made to the Sailing Boats for the bathroom


I messed up the highlights on the sails a bit but no one will notice when its on the wall :]

Holiday week!

I was silly enough to book my holiday week just before payday which means I am so skint this week I cant really afford to do much!

However Cradiff is fabulous for cheap entertainment.

Sailing Boats

Got a bit crafty and started a new cross stitch.

Another Cath Kidston pattern, this one will go in the bathroom :)


so far...

Ive been thinking a lot lately that I would like to invest in a sewing machine. A decent one (not like the £20 one I bought which never worked!) I have a lot of home decor plans and I can't do them without a sewing machine!!

Anyone have a good machine that they would recommend. Im looking for something that does the basics and I dont really want to spend more than £200.

Found a cheaper alternative in New Look £38
