My First Machine Stitched Card

I must admit that it took me ages to get my
mini sewing machine going.  It was very
difficult to get the cotton thread up from the
bobbin, luckily I did not give up and in the
end watched a video on Youtube, which
helped me understand exactly what to do.
I did a swap with one of my granddaughters'
– I gave her my full-size SM and she gave
me her mini SM.  My machine stood for many
years in a cupboard that I cannot reach and
now it is too heavy for me – apart from
the fact I have nowhere to put it out!

Getting to the point – this is the first card I
have made using stitching, and I shall be
using the SM again.  The good thing about
making hand crafted cards, is that the work
doesn't have to be perfect!!  

My first test!
