I gave my new sewing machine a try out yesterday and made this Teddy using a free Bear pattern from www.cuddlecrewpatterns.com

I was very pleased with how he turned out. This morning I'm on the search for a free rabbit pattern I like 😉 I've decided to keep my week-ends free during the dark months to try my hand at different crafts.
I've brought hardly any thread in the last 30 years as I had quite a stock from when I worked in a haberdashery department when I would purchase thread when it was on Sale.
I'm slowly running out so I looked around for good thread at a good price and came across Moons Overlocking thread. It's made by Coats so I knew it would be of a good quality. The cheaper makes you can find are often a little fluffy and not very strong.
On eBay I found 2 x boxes one of dark and one of pale colours, 48 spools in total for £29.95 with Free postage. There is 1000m on each spool so I think these will last me a life time.....Bargain 😊
