A little sewing project

I've not made many cards since the crafts by carolyn forum challenge weekend-I really must make a few more christmas cards this weekend

I've been a bit busy making curtains for the nursery. The ones that come with the range we have are A plain and boring,B tab top which we can't use and C flippin expensive!!!!

I got all the fabric, lining etc for £22 and even have some left over to make a few little projects with-bargain!!!

Sorry I took the pictures at night so they aren't great-here's a couple of close ups of the machine embroidery

I did a couple of sample pieces first-I haven't done any machine embroidery in about 10-15 years. I did a city and guilds in embroidery and I did enjoy the machine stitch part I even embroidered celtic knots on my best mate's wedding dress back then
The samples worked pretty well though so we are going to frame them for the nursery too
I have a couple more sewing projects planned for christmas presents so the machine is staying on my desk for now :-)
Thanks for stopping by!
