…or rather my lovely better half J got one for me! Bless his cottons! I had to go to work, so J left the house just after 7am and made the 45 minute drive to our nearest Lidl store, so he was there before it opened! (Gotta love a man that does that for his missus 🙂 I bought him a lovely wool scarf from work as a thankyou 🙂 Even then it was a close call. Our nearest store only had 2 of these in stock and there was already someone waiting at the door when J arrived. She too was there to nab one of these beauties! So I pity anyone turning up later because by 8:05am this particular store was sold out of machines AND thread….
I was so excited to hear that some of you managed to get your hands on one too! I let out a little “yay” every time a comment popped into my inbox to that effect 🙂 Thankyou too, to those of you who had experience with these machines and stopped by to let us know how great they are 🙂 I’ve yet to discover that for myself as I haven’t allowed myself to have a play with it yet (I have allowed myself to stroke it a few times as I walk past it…just me then??) as I’ve been busy on a couple of other projects. How disciplined am I?! One to be shared shortly (shhhh!) and the other was assembling my Andy Coat PDF and tracing off the pattern pieces. (Man is THAT back breaking when you don’t have a standing height table!)
So, if you managed to snag one of these…have you had a play with it yet??
