Aren't these adorable? I can't decide which one I like better--the cool Harley-Davidson Blanket or the Frog with the orange N applique? Too bad I shipped them both off today. :(
I had a bit of a mishap with my sewing machine this week. Three weeks before TroyFest. While vacuuming. I still can't believe it! I hit the picnic basket under my sewing table while vacuuming, it bonked the cord to my sewing machine, and sparks went flying! I completely fried my machine. I loved my little machine. I immediately began adding in my head the $$ I have available for another machine. I mean, there's a craft fair in THREE WEEKS! As I stood there by my sewing table, thinking and staring at my sewing and embroidering machine across the room, it took me a minute for things to sink in--I have a sewing and embroidery machine across the room! :) YAH!
This new (to me) machine intimidates me. It's not a simple turn the dial kind of machine. So I had to break out the users' manual. (Had to figure out where that was first!) First thing this morning I plugged that bad boy in, and started practicing. Then I finished the two blankets above. Oh man, am I in love! That machine is like a race car (sounds like one, too)! I'm already sooo happy with the new bells and whistles--things that I never knew a sewing machine could do--and now I cannot live without! :)
Three weeks to go till TroyFest. Did I say that already? I'm excited and starting to freak out now!
