Monsters and miniatures, and a new machine

I think I have created a monster!

Brace yourselves, it's a huge Bob style bunny. I wanted to use some scraps of wool up so I just kept knitting the 2 balls together for a bit of mottled effect and here he is..... Bob's big brother!

Another little and large would be these crocheted strawberries. The big chunky one is a pin cushion and I'm just finishing the small one as a necklace.

Completed last week for my mums mothers day gift was this miniature embroidery for a brooch.

And lastly, I've been so busy with work and things that I haven't had much of a go on my new sewing machine which arrived last week. I went for this Janome as it does text which is quite a feature in work I like to create and I'm very excited about some of the 400 embroidery stitches. My old Brother machine is still good but this one purrs in a much nicer way! 

I'm looking forward to warmer days and good natural light to get stuck into using it.

Happy sewing projects. x
I have been eyeing that sewing machine, you must tell me if you recommend it. I used to sew when I was a teen quite a lot, and would like to kickstart that hobby once again, of course with a decent machine that is straightforward to use. also loving those crochet strawberries.
