My first step was to invest in a machine to learn to sew on as nannies sewing machine was very heavy and didn't have any instructions. So the above beautiful purple sewing machine was purchased.

My first attempts were lavender bags. made from fat quarters and lavender from my garden. The first lot were plain and simple. Later I added some embellishments of ribbon and a button. Rather nice I thought. This one made its way to a friend.

not as easy as I thought

The title should read "getting started" not "getting start". So here I am starting my new challenge of blogging and learning to sew. Both of which are proving alot harder than first anticipated and require patience.
