its my FIRST SERGER and MY FIRST MACHINE EVER!

I also  got around to organising my little sewing area in our living room, organising everything into a place. I was given a sewing box by my partner's Gran as a gift - she was given as 21st birthday gift...

thread, needles, ribbons, hemming tape...

7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Around the World in 60 days on: November 11, 2007 05:31:48 AM
Been lurking for a while now, I think I am addicted...craft voyeurism perhaps? lol

so yeah, I volunteered my artistic services in work - customer service contact centre - to create a visual display for the next incentive. spare you the boring details, but I thought this may be a good place to start my full blown relationship with craftster.

I've still to add a few bits n pieces but so far....

The theme is Philleas Fogg Around the World in 80 days, however the incentive will be running for 60 days.

thanks for looking!
