Green cotton

Last weekend I bought this thread.



All nice and green and 100% cotton.

Wanna know why?

The joy of Freecycle my friends.


I was wondering what I might call her and the The Beast seems rather appropriate. She scares me and she’s old. Like really old. I bet she’s at least twice my age.

I feel totally intimidated and haven’t actually done anything with her yet. It might help if I plugged her in but I’m a little bit worried I might break her. I look at her and think of all the possibilities. These are very exciting times I tell you!

She's BEAUTIFUL! They don't make em like that anymore! My maching is called Edith because she's a Singer and Edith Piaf was the first singer that popped into my head!

Can't wait to see what you make xx
