Thank you for your lovely get well wishes everyone :) I feel tip-top again and I even went to the gym last night. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I wasn't totally unfit and I even managed to do some boxing training. Whilst I was warming up I saw a lady doing some boxing sparring with a trainer. The trainer was holding pads - for her to hit (so you can box without being hit back - which is a definite bonus). It looked like brilliant fun, so when the trainer was free I asked to have a go. It was a gas! Really exhausting, but such exhilarating fun. Well, that's it! I have finally found something that is an all round work out, but also great fun - who knew? Earlier today I even bought myself these - woo!
Onto sewing things. I am going to get a 'working with oilcloth' tutorial together (as promised). I thought I would ask you if you had any preferences as to what I should make out of oilcloth for the tutorial:
- Laptop sleeve
- Ipod cover - though there are so many different shapes of these things these days
- Lunch Bag
- Magazine Bag

The machine foot needs to be non-stick (also known as Teflon coated foot). These feet glide over sticky oilcloth, vinyl and plastic, and they look like this:
