Hooray!



Yesterday I took a trip to G-Street Fabrics and met up with a very bad influence, Stephanie. It took me a while to decide, but I ended up coming home with a brand new sewing machine!! I was nervous to bring it home to John, but he was nothing but supportive of my new baby.



It was a great deal too, 35% off (originally $1099, on sale for $699). I think the only stipulation of me keeping it, is that I have to sew my little butt off. I still am feeling a little guilt for spending so much money, but it was such a good deal that I couldn't pass it up. It is really nice to have a new machine and I am just dying to hone my free motion quilting skills. Stephanie and I tried to yesterday at the store and it was a lot harder than it looked! I worked on a very belated gift for my SIL today and I have to say that I really like sewing on this.

A little side note : if you are participating in the swap, I sent out e-mails today. If you didn't get one, please send me an e-mail at seekatieswap@gmail.com
