45 of 365


And on Valentine's Day I got my sewing machine :-)

We don't go out for Valentine's, we prefer to stay home and have a special meal in together. I had Covent Garden leek and potato soup as my starter:


(I did actually decant it from the carton before eating it!!)

I made Chinese Steamed Chicken with rice and vegetables for the main course (it was yummy!!), then for dessert we had shop-bought chocolate souffles (also yummy!!) - and of course we had wine... It was a lovely meal together, and no babysitter required :-)

Oooh, that's a posh sewing machine! Mine does straight stitches and zig-zags. That's it. I've made so many things with it though - and it was my mum's before I had it. It's about 35 years old and still doing well (though I haven't used it much in recent years).

It's so fun that you got a new sewing machine! The machine I have is one that I bought right after I graduated from high school - 30 years ago! It's a good basic machine and still works great - I love it. Here's wishing you hours of joy with your new machine! :o)

Your meal sounds wonderful - especially dessert (always my favourite part lol)

I'm hoping your sewing ventures inspire me to get my sewing machine out to make a few things. Its been gathering dust in the closet.
