A New Sewing Machine Is Coming

I'm really excited.  A few weeks back we put a layway on a new sewing machine.  My straight stich finally broke.  It wasn't my favorite machine either, it had a side bobbin and kept getting stuck.  I thought I'd try it out again.  Well, it worked for awhile and then all went haywire and it started eating my material.  So off to the singer guy to fix and I'll be using it for womens' sewing projects at church. 

The picture above is one of my new machine. It's a Kenmore, but I'm told it's actually made by the Janome company.  I just couldn't afford a real expensive quilters machine so I chose this one because of it's ratings by quilters.  It has enough quilting stitches that I think it will be JUST fine for what I need.

My husband was talking to a 90 year old quilter who was his patient several months back and she said all she ever used was her singer straight stitch and she's made hundreds of quilts with it.  It's given me confidence that what I purchased is just enough for what I actually need and is within our budget.  Thank You to my husband for such a lovely gift which I should have by February.

I'm excited about new projects I have to accomplish.  Now if I can get a new camera I can actually show them to you.  Everthing in moderation, so please be patient with me when it comes to pictures.

Love to you all and Happy New Year!

I found you!!! Yaaaay!!!

Your blog looks great!!! Glad you got it up and going.
I was looking at the beautiful header graphic and thinking that it represented you and hubby ... and of course, Little Jackson with the butterflies.
Sure enough, I started reading, and my thought was correct. It is beautiful!

Great to *see* you again.

HUGS~
