I hope your week has got off to a good start.
We are back from my Niece's Wedding and all had a fantastic time .. .. shattered but full of happy memories.
The wedding wasn't until 2.00pm which gave us the morning to mooch around Leek .. .. and just look what I found and purchased .. .. something I have craved for a long time but never been able to find other than on ebay.
My Mum had one like this years ago and the shop owner had a couple for sale. The first one I had to reject because it had the tension control missing .. .. but this one worked perfectly once I had tweaked it about. Being the cheeky person I am I managed to reduce the price a little - but the shop owner said it was worth the reduction for the lesson I had given him in working and adjusting them LOL!!
I think he thought it strange though that I was happy to just sew on an old envelope! I never admitted it was for sewing on cards .. .. and I bet the people of Leek thought us even stranger for taking it out of its box and taking a picture of it on some lovely steps we found.
Can't wait to give it a good clean and polish up! I bet it would have a few tales to tell if it could talk.
The London kids have started their tracks home again :-( and now I must catch up on some work. Mr Heart has kindly volunteered to drive me round this afternoon to collect some ribbons and supplies I have on order, which means I can just sit with my head down for the rest of the week.
So off I go to get the supplies in and I'll catch you again soon.
