- I planted a garden & saved it from 2 frost warning nights.
- I've helped my step-daughter with end of the year activities including a dance and outdoor school which is basically camping for 4 days and 3 nights.
- Besides that other life stuff, I've had to scramble because the car needed some TLC. This car stuff came in the form of HUNDREDS of dollars that I didn't have in the budget until the beginning of August. Lalalala
These lovely new pinking sheers!
Oh yeah and remember my whining in this post?
Yeah, I wanted a blanket stitch . . .
I can do that PLUS more! A new sewing machine is so much fun. It's a computerized Brother. Right know it's name is "Ohhh brother" - since I only have a sister.
Can I just say this is the LIGHTEST machine ever! I'll gladly take this along with me on my trips - anywhere! I may become the traveling seamstress!
I spent over an hour reading the manual, setting this beauty up, and sewing up a few pieces. This is going to be a beautiful relationship. Some of the perks I know so far: automatic back stitch, up/down button for the needle, speed control, a buttonhole foot and fancy blah blah, and the BLANKET STITCH!
I have a few blocks to share but first I have to go play with my new sewing machine and then I'll have a whole lot more to share.
