Seriously - I cannot believe I got through a whole year of making sock toys with my old machine. I was very grateful for that machine, it was a hand-me-down from my mum, via my sister but it just did not sew well when it came to socks. There were times when it nearly went out the window!!!
But I digress, my new machine is sublime. It sews so well through socks, it's effortless and so quiet too. I'm so (sew!!) excited to get back into creating again, I'm even planning to make a patchwork quilt for Robyn with this fabric:
