Out with the old, in with the new

 OK, fine, maybe I did say I was done with sewing on the 23rd but...I had more dish towel ideas in my head!  I snuck up to the sewing room on the 24th and decorated 6 more and I am glad I did!

The rest of the year, I am going to be on the look out for better quality solid dish towels that I can decorate.  I have some pretty cute fabrics stashed away, it's a great way to use it!

I love these "tea" towels!

Here is a picture of the important things under our tree.

Do you see what I see? 

I can hardly wait to get my new machine, it's only my 4th sewing machine that I have owned since I was 22.  One a year!  Ha ha.

I have an Elna right now and before that I had two Singers.  I have loved all my machines and used them a lot. 

This Elna has probably gotten the most use, nearly every day for two years and lots the 8 years before that. 

I am keeping it, it will be my back up sewing machine.

Here is the Elna, all packed up and ready for a much deserved rest.  I hemmed 7 pairs of pants on her for her last bit of work.

Here is the Bernina - unpacked and not really ready to go!  I just looked at it!
See this collection of "stuff" that came in the box?  I have to sit up there, read the manual and figure it all out!

I also got a bonus gift of a travel/carry case for my machine.  This will come in handy when I go back to Thimbles for my "Mastery" classes in January!

I am ready for new beginnings, I will indeed "master" my new machine!
