Where have i been?

A quick post to say sorry for not blogging for quite a while.  Not been too good and am just starting to get my head back into things. Have also been trying to learn to sew and have knitted a couple of very small items to keep me going. 

Visited a local sewing machine shop to see what was available, prices etc. Was told there are two different types of machine, a sewing machine and an embroidery machine, seems the affordable choice is to get two different machines instead of one.  Looking at around £1,500 for a combined machine or around £1,100 for two.  Seems silly to me that these types of sewing machines are not more readily available.  An affordable hybrid machine seems to be the answer, going to wait until i can afford a basic machine and by then i am hopeful that all machines will have reduced in price and i can afford a hybrid. I can daydream...

Thanks for dropping by:-)

  5. Hi there, Great that you're feeling well enough to blog again, missed you:0) Can't help with the sewing machine thingy, I can't sew for toffee. In fact I couldn't even thread it properly the last time I got my machine out, how sad is that!!! LOL Good luck with your decision,:0) Gay xxx

  6. Another interesting venture (or two) for you. Always great trying new things.

    Haven't done knitting in over 20 years and it's been a few years since I last did any sewing to speak of (voiles for the living room if I remember correctly, not exactly difficult lol).

    Have fun with whatever sewing machine(s) you decide to get and are we going to see your knitting here? :-) x

  7. GREAT to see you back, seems like you have been busy anyway, look forward to seeing the sewing :)
