my *new* favorite
A couple weeks ago, Tommy and I sat down to finally order my birthday present - a SEWING MACHINE! We do almost all of our browsing at CSN.com these days...they have it all from bar furniture to fine cookery to sewing machines. Found my lil beauty right away...it's a Brother cs-6000i - and she's pretty amazing.
I finally got her in the mail last week...but didn't even dare to open the box because I had no idea what to do with her. I was scared...no no...I was intimidated. The reviews I read about it on CSN.com were very helpful in selecting the model (I love that feature of their site!!) - so I knew I could figure it out...I just didn't quite know where to begin. Thankfully, my mom knows a lil bit about sewing machines, so while she was visiting this weekend she helped me understand the basics.
So now I daydream about alllllllllllll the projects I want to complete! I already fixed a hole in my favorite black and white striped shirt.... I can't wait to have another free weekend someday to sew to my lil hearts content.
I DID work on a second project too - the wedding present for my hubby.
Plenty-o-pictures to follow....fear not.
I have big big Christmas plans this year. BIG!!
