AAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!

As a Christmas gift, Aaron gave me a new sewing machine. It's not just an ordinary sewing machine, this can also handle quilts. I've been sewing since two, according to my mother, and since my career began, I've never owned a sewing machine as awesome as this one! Aaron always has a way of showing how much he cares about my interest and how much he believes in my abilities. Thank you honey!

The instruction book is about a quarter inch thick written in a small font. This machine is computerized and that scares me to death. It is also a different brand that what I'm used to using. I feel like I need to learn how to sew all over again. I created another New Year's resolution: I want to master this new sewing machine!



I have several quilt tops that need to be quilted. The first ones that I want to machine quilt are for my boys. Here is a picture of one of them:



It's been several years since I've pieced them together. I have watched several winters go by and felt guilty for not completing the quilts. NO MORE!!! I resolve to have them finished! There, now that the cat is out of the bag, it's OK to ask me how they are doing. With any luck and a bit of elbow grease, I will finish.

  2. So once you have mastered your new machine what are you going to do for the rest of the 48+ weeks of the year. Seriously I know of no one who is as talented as you are!
