I have a new toy

So, about a month ago I decided I wanted to get one of these.

My new toy

So I went to a couple of stores and decided in this basic Bernette for Bernina machine. It is just the basics. But I am not sure how much I will like it. Last weekend I picked it up. And it has been on the table awaiting me to have the nerve to sit down and figure it out. So today, I went to Jo Ann Fabrics, bought some scissors, pins and fat quarters and this evening I sat down and figured it out. Here are the goodies.

The goodies

After I realized I could sew close to a straight line, I decided to make the checkbook cover that is in the book, Weekend Sewing.

Here it is all pinned and ready to be sewn together, then the finished project.

All pinnedTa Da!

I haven’t put away the needles. But I think that I am going to like this sewing thing.

    I’ve been thinking of digging out my sewing machine to make a few simple things… now, that doesn’t mean I’ve actually done it, though! :)

    Keep it up and you’ll be flying soon! Sewing gives you a quicker thrill than knitting, but it’s kinda hard to do at work. Good Luck!
