The tale of three sewing machines

It's been probably three years since I've last sewn, beings I didn't have a sewing machine. But, my birthday was last week (the 9th) and now I have one!

My dear Husband and my Mom bought me this, and everything to go with it:

A brother CE-4000! I've already made a giant mess of my work area, as I'm sure I will do for the next few months :)

And this is from my in-laws, they gave it to me a few weeks ago. Isn't it gorgeous?! Even my H, who hated the idea of having "old" furniture loves it. When you unfold the leaf there is a gorgeous painted sewing machine inside.

And now I guess I can use this! It's a QVC tiny serger my boss gave me years ago. I've never had a reason to use it, but I'm hoping i can finally get some use from it.

So now I have three sewing machines. I've already made one shirt ( I hated it, but it was practice) and today my bff and I spent about 7 hours making her a fall dress. I had forgotten how much fun this is.

  1. How cool! I am just getting into sewing... I found the coolest fabric for our curtains. I am really excited. Now I just have to get my mom to give up her sewing machine! :-)
