I needed to be around the house today so decided to try out my Singer Featherweight, I have had this baby since October but it was supposed to be a Christmas present from hubbie so haven't used it up till now.
I was a little concerned initially when there was a bit of smoke coming out, but it wasn't hot and as I had been rather liberal with the baby oil when I cleaned it I carried on and it was fine! In fact it sewed like a dream, perfect straight stitches and tension and sooooo pretty!
The blocks were nice and straight forward, I don't normally like batiks but the colours with these are so rich and I am very keen on orange and dark purple at the moment that I think they look rather lovely.

It does seem strange sewing at home after so much time at the studio but it does have the added benefit of my little helper ....
What is it with cats, they just have to put their paws on the fabric and be right in there!
