Christopher came back from Wells with a new toy for me, a manual Singer sewing machine in good working order. He found it in a charity shop for a laughably small amount of money. I haven't yet done the research to find out how old it is, but it must have some sewing tales to tell. It's in very good condition and has a lovely old wooden case. I'm certainly going to try my hand at sewing with it sometime.
Tomorrow, we're off on our first adventure in the new motorhome - christened Ronnie (it's a Swift Escape, get it?). We're going to Tewkesbury, which is about two hour's drive from here, for the weekend. Some neighbours of
ours who also have a motorhome have offered to come with us and show us the ropes. I've spent the last ten days stocking it up, sorting out bedding and sewing a few bits and bobs.
So, in honour of the occasion, I made myself a new bag, using a U-Handbag pattern, the Expandable Pack it in Tote. It will hold masses of holiday stuff. I've also made a new case for my camera, something I've been planning to do for ages.
Check in to my other blog and I'll try to take you on a mini-tour of Tewkesbury camp site and town.
