It's not very fancy, it can't do zig-zag stitch or button-holes or any of the cool stuff that even an inexpensive modern machine can do. *but* it is exceptionally cool looking (that counts right?) it was so sweet of Joel's grandma to give it to me, and it was *free* which is my favorite price. I moved it into the craft room last night. Hopefully when I go home today (I'm at mom's right now) I'll get some sewing done.
Like most things in Joel's family the machine has been exceptionally well cared for and it runs like a dream.
I'm just happy that all my belly-aching paid off this time. The funny thing is that I don't think I even mentioned to Joel how much I wanted one. I may have said something in passing but as he doesn't really understand my drive to craft and create, I usually don't tell him stuff like that.
Maybe I was just sending "get me a sewing machine" vibes into the universe... it's The Secret! It works! hehe
In honor of this being my 50th post I decided that what I really needed was a kitten heel red patent leather shoe. How else do you celebrate 50 posts I ask you? So I went to target.com and purchased this:
psst... click on the picture to get yourself a pair
Okay so I didn't really buy them because of 50 posts... but it sounded good right? I bought them because they remind me of my grandma (grandma loves red shoes) and I thought they'd look nice with my navy dress... even if red shoes are played out.
I will do something in honor of the 50th post though... I'll have a CONTEST.
It's easy, leave me a comment (say something nice... or maybe neutral) and I'll use one of them thar random number generators thingies to pick a name. I'll send you some yarn. Because I love you. Good yarn too.
I guess we'll say leave a comment by 5:00 pm Pacific time on Tuesday. Thanks.
