This past week has been a big week for giveways here. The first 3 stops on my blog tour have all had giveaways. On Anne Hanson‘s blog a copy of Among Stones went to Judi, then on Laura’s blog Sandy won a copy. There is a giveway running right now on Jean Moss’s blog, it’s still there until Wednesday the 18th so head over! Go check their blog posts out and watch out for my guest post with Craftsy next Thursday 19th.
I’ve even had my own giveaway on the blog this week and our winner was Christine.
Craftsy have just reached the 2 million member marker so they’re having a big sale celebration with up to 75% off classes (and supplies?) so it would be a good time to pick up a class if you’ve been checking them out!
Actually, along the lines of learning something new I’ve been watching their new mini-class on sewing basics. I wish I could somehow add an extra few hours to each day or week to learn new stuff! My mother used to have a sewing machine when I was younger and I learned the basics but I haven’t used a machine for 20 years. I’ve go a really strong desire to get myself a new machine to get started again. There are so many small alterations and simple pieces of clothing I’d love to be able to make. It’s really stupid to have to put up with clothing that doesn’t fit when it would be such a small fix!
So any starter machine suggestions for Ireland/UK? I don’t think I’ll be doing anything too complex but I am prone to breaking stuff so it should be durable and simple to use!
