I know it may not sound like much, but I successfully used my little sewing machine today. Not bad for an old fart with no feeling in his hands and not-the-best eyesight!

I've been putting off two simple sewing jobs I'd set myself for at least six months - d'oh!

A simple little bag for my Bluetooth Keyboard and mouse (made out of an old [and clean!] tea towel)... and sewing some simple pillow slipcovers for my computer chair.

I know you real sewers will laugh, but it's done... sure the lines aren't perfectly straight etc, but they're functional and practical - which is all I was going for. As far as I'm concerned - success!

Even better... the two times I had to thread the needle on my machine, I got it done the first go each time! Woo hoo!

I've had a small 'hussif' (small sewing kit in a bag) and the machine for like 20+ years - all went well!

"A good time was had by all".

  1. Rather like I sew on fallen off buttons. It doesn't look good in close up but they don't come off again.
