Sewing Machine

Just got my new sewing machine yesterday. I'm really excited! I got a Singer Confidence 7467. Looking forward to my first project. Which is to make Keith and I our own Snuggies! :D Should be just as easy as my robe was. Next, I am thinking of making a tote. We'll see. I'll post some pictures soon...I hope. lol

Feeling good right about now! I have gotten a few things done around the house. Yippie!! Went shopping for some organizing equipment. Reorganized the bathroom "cabinet". It looks a lot better! Added a few corner trays by the sink and in the shower to hold accessories. Whoop! Whoop! Did a few loads of dishes! Mostly moved and organized my desk area into "My" room. The room is my oasis. It is where all my crafts, sewing, and desk are. In the process of getting that cleaned up and organized. Also did some more transferring/ripping of music/cd's onto my laptop. So much done and a lot more to go! hahahahhaa Seems never ending, but taking one task at a time. I hope to one day have the house "guest ready" at all times. :D That will be a project.

Wish me Luck!!!

Thanksgiving was a good time again this year! Martin's kids are getting big and growing into their own little person. Each still different as night and day. Fun to watch them interact with each other and others. Had an interesting experience with the turkey. It was a fresh free range turkey. Didn't have a lot of fat on it. Was moist, but not very flavorful. Even with a herb butter rub and baste! Oh well...

Had my first sewing class today at JoAnn's. I want to get back into sewing and want to grow my skills. I am preparing myself for when the kids get here and when I will be sewing who knows what. I am also getting a new sewing machine for Christmas. Yippie!! I made a fleece robe in one of my fave colors, purple!! It turned out pretty good for my first project after so long. I now have a robe that actually fits me and doesn't dwarf my arms!! lol Only took about 6.5 hrs. to make. Not bad. In two weeks I start my second class, making a fleece vest! :D
