Autumn leaves and crisp apples

Autumn leaves and crisp apples

This week my craft group are holding a free machine embroidery workshop and because I have been using the stone age machine that my husband dragged out of a skip and weighs a ton,  I thought I better get out the modern computerised thing I got in 2007 and see if I could get it going.  I remember shoving it in a cupboard because it was making funny noises and would'nt sew.  After reading the manual I discovered it was something and nothing and got on with relearning what it can do.

At the same time I found this lovely piece of felt in my stash box and decided to make a leaf tag.  So I did two jobs in one, a tag and a bit of practice for Saturday's workshop.
