Because Hand sewing is painful.
I can see it from here


I taught a class this week and I really need to put everything back in order in my class folder.

The folder is beautifully organised when I begin but somehow always ends up a mess.  I also need to print out new booklets but I have been unable to purchase inks for my printer.  (I am constantly amazed at the items I can't purchase easily since Covid.)

I am making slow progress on my pin cushions, but slow and steady will get me there.  Only 4 more, no 1.5 to go.

I am slowly teaching myself how to stitch out words on my sewing machines to make labels to go on my finished quilts.  And I am also practising my fine zig zag and blanket stitch functions to work on a couple of quilts.

So not a lot of what I like best, embroidery, but I am keeping busy.

You are not alone! My teaching materials are in perfect order at the start of a lesson, at the end everything is in a BIG MESS!
I have never used a computerised sewing machine and think yours look intimidating! Good luck with the writing!

I am determined to learn how to do this.


I hope you get organised to your satisfaction!
