Sowing machine hell + Gift from Stitching Noni!!!!



I have spent all day swearing at that sodding sowing machine. I hate it with a passion. After convincing my nana that I was completely competent with one I had to phone her to come fix the damned machine. The tiny bit that I practised on was good then it all went to hell after that.

The sowing machine from hell

I have been decapitating teddies for my dad, as part of an art project he is working on. I know, I know decapitating teddies is horrible, I feel like a monster! I had to cut their arms, legs and heads off then sow the pieces together. It’s part of a bigger project which I have asked him to tell you about. So as soon as his written it, he will be my first guest post!!


I lulled the teddys into a false sence of security



There’s been no progress on “Strength” due to teddy mutilation. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to work on it tonight. I’m so excited to finish it.

This morning i received a lovely thank you gift from Stitching Noni. Thank you so much!  A beautiful handmade wall hanging- with a zebra on it! For those who don’t know a zebra is part of the EDS motto. It’s perfect!! The photo really doesn’t do it justice.

Can't wait to read the guest post and get an explanation to the decapitation...
I am trying to imagine what is going on, but I am pretty sure that I won't be able to guess! LOL

Curious and curious! What does your dad what with teddy heads! Or teddies without heads..... Can't wait to see his post :0)

I am so pleased that you liked the pressie I made for you. I hope that all your days have lots of nice little surprises!

Good luck with the dreaded machine!! I don't get along with sewing machines too well either!!

@jenny- lol i doubt anyone would be able to guess, when he said about it i couldnt believe what he was planning. :)

@Stitching Noni- hopefully will have a post up about it tonight, just waiting for my dad to add a little more to the post.
i LOVED the pressie! my partner has put it in the front room so its the first thing you see as you come through the house.
