Yesterday I received a fabulous gift...a new sewing machine!! It came all the way from new York courtesy of Marida! Someone else chipped in to pay the shipping...a big thank you to that person/persons! She also sent along a bag of goodies! Everything I needed to start sewing and then some. I am still confused with which foot is what and the drop in bobbin is new to me. I haveyet to attempt to change the foot..I will probably do that tomorrow! Tonight I just played with the different stitches. It is going to make an interesting dog blanket for Lacey Jane!! It's flannel in a purple camo pattern and now its got weird decorative stitching in the seams where I hemmed the raw edge to keep it from fraying. Oh well, she won't care! It was fun to play thouigh! This weekend I hope to go fabric shopping after the funeral. We shall see. We are also going to see a movie...How to tame your dragon. It looks good ansd I think Adrian will really like it. I'll give a review later on!!
