What foot is this?

I got this for $2.99 from Savers the other day. I have no idea what it (or they?) is or if it will work on my machine LOL.

Can anyone tell me what it is?

This is new...

It's a pram (well, derr!). But anyone who knows me will realise what a big deal this is. My little man is 13 months old and this is only the second time he has been in a pram. Till now, he has always been carried - in our arms, in a ring sling and in an ergo. But, well, he's getting heavier, and as much as I LOVE carrying him, it was getting hard. Plus I hoped it would help him get to sleep those days when he was tired but resisting.

I was lucky enough to get this off freecycle yesterday. And, after a short walk around the block he fell asleep - happy days! But I am a little confused by the whole world of prams. I mean, these things are BIG! How do people fit them in the car? This thing barely fits in our house! I also found it quite awkward to push, I seemed to be stepping on the wheels. Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't be admitting all this! It also took us a loooong time to work out how to collapse it, and how to get it to recline. This is a whole new world. I can't imagine taking it on public transport. And there is no way we could put it in the boot when we were going shopping or away - and that's with a wagon.

So, I've entered this strange world of prams, I'm not ready to pass judgement just yet...

where does the time go?

it's been over a month since i last posted :( I hereby resolve to do do a weekly post, each Wednesday for the next four weeks. Then maybe I'll aim for twice a week LOL. Babysteps... I'm also aiming to get some non-sewing stuff back in here, it's been too long. Today is not Wednesday, therefore this is not a proper post. Be back tomorrow :)
