Out with the old, in with the new
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!
