My X-mas gift from my husband
How sweet he is! When I told him I finished my quilt my husband was so proud of me he just couldnt wait. He brought out my new sewing machine! Its a Singer-- Simple. I dont know anything about it but I am very excited to figure it all out and give it a spin! The sewing machine I made my first quilt on was....really old and klunky. (An old old Kenmore) I love me husband....he is so supportive of me. Someday I may want the nice digital ones especially made for quilting...like a Janome Horizon or a Bernina 440QE.....but seriously we cannot afford this luxury right now. This new Singer will take me far! I am so in love with my hubby that he cared enough to get this for me...all on his own! It is by far better than what I was using. Plus it so portable with a nice case...so I can take it to classes and workshops! Who knows I may keep and use it forever...sometimes the simple machines ,once you are totally used to using them, cannot be beat! Its kind of like my old first guitar, a simple inexpensive guitar my mom bought for me when I was 13...but it is still my favorite guitar to play and I love the sound...and I do have more expensive guitars but I still really love my old one the best. Thank you Timmy my love--I cant wait to try it out on my 2nd quilt! I am totally hooked on quilting now! I would love to take some classes now as well...life is good!
