    I research my family tree - no pics but you can see my website: http://www.nryonline.co.uk/phpgedview it has also meant that I am becoming the keeper of family photos and other old bits of paper etc. I'm quite passionate about it and get overly excited about anything old that has a link to my family LOL.

    Thanks Magic.
    Becky thats so cool, i love the snippet facts at the bottom of the page!
    My uncle is into all the geneology stuff, after a clairvoyant reading a name came up from the family history, so i told uncle chris and next time he was up this way he brought the papers and showed me this name about 3 generations ago, so interesting! xx

    They look hard to me, well the stitching up of them does. I saw some gorgeous ones at the stitching show in november! I was really tempted but I can't justify buying anything else until I've finished everything I've started :oops:

    They look hard to me too!! Apparently they are quiet easy but i will let u know when i have finished it lol. You just need two bits of aida the exact same size and u stitch either 1 or boths sides then stitch them up. i have to post it by 14 feb so i will give u a verdict by then :cheer:

    Hello :wave:

    I made this yesterday, I have just bought a new sewing machine and this is the first proper thing I have made. It's a scrap bag so you can chuck all of the loose threads in the bag part and has a magnet and pin cushion on top. It also sits on the sofa arm so is perfect for when i'm sewing in front of the telly.

    I originally bought this as a kit but am keeping the instructions so I can make more as presents.

    Thanks.

    It took me the best part of a day though and I broke 2 sewing machine needles :doh: If you look at it closely it's not as neat as I hoped!
