              hi everyone and thank you for the reply well iv got my sewing machine but due to our car packing up and our boiler packing up too not had much luck the last couple of weeks so i dont have a penny to my name apart from bill and food shopping money so am not going to be able to buy any thread or things to get started

              so iv just been doing some smalls cross stiches and may get my scarpbooking out today as i have loads of bits for that, and havent done any it a while, hard to find the time at the min what with a very active 3 yr old and my baby girl.
              anyway hopefully we get back on track in a couple of weeks and then i can start getting used to my sewing machine.

                Welcome Kerrib,

                You'll find plenty of like minded people here. I too started off making cards, decorating cakes, making cushion and found my niche in Jewellery making.

                What a nice hubby you have buying you a sew'll have great fun using it.
