    Hi Everyone,

    I got my new sewing machine today, a Brother XR9000 and it didn't take me long to read the book, view the dvd and set it up to work. I would have taken a picture of it, but my studio is such a mess I was too embarrassed for you to see it. So the next best thing is to show you what I made already. This is the starting block for #2 nephew for this Christmas...

    Awesome. And your sewing space probably isn't any worse than most of ours!

    Studios are never a mess, just in a state of creative disorder

    Take a nice piece of fabric, a quilt you've made, or anything to use as a backdrop and take a picture of your new machine. We won't know what's behind. Lucky you!

    After viewing a lot of the photos of others sewing spaces, I decided mine was no worse than most. So here is a photo of my new baby. This machine is a dream after using that old dinosaur !
