New Sewing Machine

So I have mentioned before that my husband is wonderful. He is so thoughtful. Well, he has done it again.

I have been borrowing my moms sewing machine for years. I never would buy my own, I am way too cheap for that. Well my husband found this online. It is refurbished so it was pretty reasonable. But did I mention that it looks brand new?

Yes, it is digital. Yes it has over 120 stitches, including hearts, leaves and flowers just to name a few. I also prints the alphabet, that is right, the alphabet! Of course I haven't had as much time to play as I would like, but the first night I was up past midnight playing.

I made a purse for my daughter, isn't it cute?

This is a blurry close-up of one of my stitches.

I cannot wait to make more things! I will hopefully have time in the next couple of weeks. And of course I will post my creations!

Having  a new to me sewing machine definately works for me!

  1. I believe my mom bought a refurbished machine as well and she's been really pleased with it. Thankfully, I inherited her very nice hand-me-down. :) That bag is adorable, by the way.

  2. I've got a refurbished Brother, from, and have been very happy with it. Enjoy your pretty stitches!

  3. solsticeletters--thanks so much, my kids love it. And congrats on the hand me down!
