A Sewing We Will Go

Hello! Hello! How are you? 
I am not the best blogging buddy lately, so sorry! I hope you are doing good.


My older sister made me the prettiest apron for my birthday. She stitched it all out by hand. She dipped into her vintage stash of fabrics from her dear MIL. Don't you love the pretty purple and yellow pansies! What a wonderfully sweet gift! Thanks, Sis!!


I finally got my new sewing machine... yay! So you want to know what I decided to get? I purchased a Brother Innov-is 2800D.
What does that mean? It means not only can I sew and quilt on it, but it has machine embroidery on it, too! I am sure it will be a lot of fun! 
Oh, Heather, if I could only hand stitch as beautiful as you! But this will be good way for me!!

 

Now for the learning how to use all the whistles and bells!
What will I make first? Well, I signed up for usage classes in November and that should help me learn this particular machine. I did embroider on the front of a t-shirt. I will spare you the pictures!! I am going to make some simple tea towles and stuff to start getting the feel for this machine.

Quilt Sampler every Wednesday at Donna's Lavender Nest
I will also being doing something very fun..
I will be attempting the Quilt Block Sampler 2013 over at Donna's every Wednesday! This week is number three, but I am sure I can catch up! She is great at her tutorials.

I also have a vintage 70's dress pattern on the way from a sweet friend. I am not sure how hard that will be, but I will give it a try! I will show the picture when I get it :)

Happy blessings, and pray your week is filled with joy.

Blessings,
