Talking of grandchildren . . .
. . . here's what the 3 eldest ones in Scotland made with mum's birthday sewing machine, on a recent visit of grandparents carrying supplies of fabric bits. Amazing!
And what DD had wanted the machine for - making some cushions. I showed her how to do appliqué with bondaweb and zigzag stitching round, and free machining for the flower centres. Also how to put a zip in. She and her eldest DD have since made annother, with one big flower, all by themselves! Clever girls.
