About a week ago, when I saw the latest and greatest project ever, I pulled that thing back out of its storage place. I dusted the case off, and popped the lid off. 'Singer' -it said. . .yep, this is it. . .Mom's old machine. Luckily for me.....it was already threaded and ready to go!! Just like the good ol' days! It was as if Mom was nudging me along. . .allowing me the opportunity to succeed so that I would push myself a little harder and continue with learning how to use the machine that she loved so much.
I got the basic bag idea from Michelle Wooderson's blog. I had remembered seeing it, and loving it. . .and I knew that something like it would be the perfect home to all of those cute little seed packets and of course, a card! :) To top off my luck on the day I made this. . .-the sewing machine was threaded with beautiful red thread!! Perfect for the colorful gift I needed packaged up! And yes, you will probably be seeing a LOT of projects with red thread on them for a while. . .at least until it runs out or I figure out how to change it. :)
So, here is the little card I made to go along with my gift for my neighbor (hi E!!). It's not perfect. . .but I did it! :)
Besides the thread. . .I've used lots of Cosmo Cricket papers and embellishments. The 'cork' circle is a new *FAV*. . .and you will definitely be seeing a lot more of it on my upcoming projects. :)
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! See you Monday!! :)
