Happy bunting

Despite Mr T's injury, we managed to drag ourselves into town yesterday for our weekly shop and popped into Fust, a Swiss electrical shop. They so happened to be selling sewing machines and to have a sale on...pure coincidence but a happy one! My old sewing machine, kindly donated by Mr T's nan, died soon after we moved to Switzerland, and although I am not a big sewer I have missed having a machine.

So we came home on the bus with 3 bags full of groceries and a sewing machine...hum it was a bit of a struggle! Anyhow, here it is! I chose a fairly basic model as I don't tend to do complicated stuff with my machine and the more buttons or options to choose from, the more confused I usually become. Reduced from 400 CHF to 200 CHF, I think it is good value although I guess I will judge it in the long run.


I have been wanting to make some pretty bunting to put on the balcony for ages but was dreading the prospect of having to do all the sewing by hand and doing a bad job of it. Fifteen minutes with the new sewing machine, and here is the result...


I looooove my new sewing machine, thank you Mr T!!

OMG! A friend was telling me some weeks ago that Fust was having a sale on sewing machines. Tempted. My IKEA one still works though, but, oh well, if I want to get serious with my sewing hobby, I should think about a proper machine. (The IKEA one broke once already, and it probably only does the best job of hemming curtains :D)

Which Fust in the city was the one you went to, by the way? :)
