This year for Christmas I got a new sewing machine! Yay! My 25 year old Brother machine is acting like it's broken & I can't seem to figure out what's wrong with it. :( No great love loss though--it was very basic and only did a straight running stitch and zigzag. My new Singer can do 600 different stitches. Yes, I was giving away alot of tea towels with decorative borders for Christmas! ;) The best feature of this machine is the threader because I can't really see to thread a needle anymore. Of course, the automatic tac and thread cutter is awesome. I've never owned such a nice machine and the push-button start/stop is great--hate those foot pedals! It seems a bit fancy for me, but I guess I have no excuse to not learn "real" sewing now. I've been hemming the new pairs of Mr. Prim Rose Hill's jeans, so he's thrilled. haha.
I keep saying I'm going to start quilting, so I think I will start with tablerunners. That's more my size for starting out! :) I definitely found some inspiration on Flickr this week. Now I have to dig into that big stash I've fabric I've been collecting and get busy!
have a great weekend! :)
