A Ready Set Sew Roundup by Tracy Sutton

Oh my, welcome to my blog. What a week its been. Was “sew” excited about the Ready Set Sew event on Hochanda.
As you all know by now, I’ve recently discovered a love for sewing. I’ve been so busy with starting a new full-time job from home that I’ve not been able to watch as much as I’d like but have recorded lots of shows to catch up on. I so love Hochanda for introducing me to new crafts, firstly it was mixed media and now sewing. I’ve loved all the Threader’s shows this week they have been really inspiring.

I want to have a go at making one of those lovely bags that were on this week, then my favourites Craft Yourself Silly. I love watching Hayley do her thing on TV she’s such fun. Dawn Bibby with her fabric creations made me want to get my embroidery needles out, and then Joe from The Millshop Online with his Fusaweb. I actually made my first projects with that amazing product this weekend.

And my all time favourite Nicola from Daisy and Grace who introduced me into sewing in the first place. She is so much to blame for my stash of fabric I have.

I’m so excited to tell you all that I have started to use a sewing machine. I’ve made a couple of samples with the new Craft Buddy Crystal Art Motifs coming your way soon.

Thought it would be different to use them in a different way using a bit of Fusaweb and some Crafter’s Companion Stick and Stay to adhere the motif to the fabric. I’m so pleased with myself for finally plucking up the courage, and I took to it like a duck to water. No wobbly seam stitching. Wait til you see what else is coming up. What goodies have I bought this week? Well, some fabulous new scissors from The Millshop Online, some fabric and templates from Daisy & Grace, I was quite reserved really, but now avidly waiting for what else is coming up from Threaders.  I cannot wait!!!
Until next time, keep crafting!!
