My New Sewing Machine!!!

I'm really having fun with my new sewing machine that I got for my Birthday and Christmas (Thankful that my Hubby didn't follow through with his threat to wrap it up and make me wait til Christmas). Look at the throat on that thing! It's a very nice size to accomodate a good sized quilt. It doesn't take kindly to cheap thread so I'm off to town today to get some aurifil thread! I can't wait!!

Other than that, I am truly swooning over this machine. I rearranged the homeschool/sewing room so I could put two desks back to back and have a full table to sew on to my hearts content, since we'll need the dining room table for Christmas dinner. OH! It's Christmas time not sewing time? Ah! I had better change gears soon! How bout you all? Have you changed gears and started enjoying the holidays???

A work in progress finished!

I really love to crochet too. This pretty afghan pattern was a pattern from Caron Connections hosted by Vickie Howell. Caron yarn is my favorite yarn, for to me it is the softest. I really enjoyed the colors and think it would pretty in two different colors of pink and gray.

Isn't it pretty?

My first blogger post

Well as I await my Birthday/Christmas present to get here, A new Husqvarna sewing machine, I have been trying to keep busy hence this array of Christmas cards that I made. I am so excited to get to quilting some tops that I've finished. I found a quilt shop (Creative Stitches) near my home that has an all free sewing day, so I can't wait to go on a quilting retreat once a week, with my new sewing machine. Is there anyone out there with experience on a Husqvarna?
