A couple of quick'n'easy projects

After a long hiatus, I've finally ventured into the sewing room. Once the cobwebs were dusted off the trusty tenny, I managed a couple of hours sewing .... the result... 2 sets of Christmas guest towels. I used a simple madeira (by machine)technique along with a simple applique for the first set and machine embroidered the second set. These will come in handy as hostess gifts.

What mythical creature am I?

You Are a Centaur
In general, you are a very cautious and reserved person.
However, you are also warm hearted, and you enjoy helping others in practical ways.
You are a great teacher, and you are really good at helping people get their lives in order.
You are very intuitive, and you go with your gut. You make good decisions easily.
What Mythological Creature Are You?

First day

After much deliberation, it's time to start 'officially' recording my sewing achievements (or at least attempts).

On the cutting table at present is the makings of a wardrobe for the contest on Patternreview . So far 4 items have been completed, though I've only reviewed 1 so far. To date, the black denim jeans (reviewed), black pants, black lycra top with beaded neckline and the black linen blouse have been completed, and with a few 'spare' days up my sleeve, I should see at least 1 or 2 more items finished.
