Rainy, Dark, Tuesday...


Well, well, well, I missed yesterdays post. But it was for a good reason. I went back to Target before I went into work to buy Rebecca this sewing machine. It is a Euro-Pro by Shark. It was a deal to good to pass up. The machine was clearance, then I had a 10% off reward card from my credit card, another 10% for employee discount, and another 10% off because the box had been so badly damaged. Needless to say Rebecca was thrilled, because she had no idea I was going to get her a machine. I know she had really been wanting to sew a lot more, but, figured that her biggest problem was she was afraid she would do something to mess up my machine. I was right, and now she is ready to go. Today we used her rolled hem foot because she was making a bow for a costume. It worked really well. (It is like night time out already because of all the rain, so that is why all the pictures are so dark......)



The reason I went with this machine, besides the wonderful price, was I remember reading about it on My Paper Crane last October. Rebecca really liked that she can make little dolphins with the embroidery part. And she can even make very nice button holes. She is looking forward to trying to make clothes for her Pullip dolls.
Now I also have no reason to go for my goal this year and that is to sew like I use to. I use to sew almost everyday. Made almost all the clothes for the kids. I miss those days....But, the first thing I need to do is clean up my little table in the kitchen so I can get to my machine! Oh, one last thing, while trying to do the rolled hem today we ran into a problem. Found The Sewing Divas blog and it was really helpful. Also fun to read and lots of pictures.....

Somehow your blog popped itself out of my favorites...good thing I realized it and got it added back in!

That was very sweet of you to get that machine! I'm sure she's loving it. I've got my eye on a new Viking (a Saphire model), but it's a good chunk of change! Lucky you with all those wonderful discounts!
