Well, it looks like great husbands think alike, because...

my husband got me a sewing machine for Valentine's Day, too! YAY! It was especially good timing since my old one started sounding like it was an airplane about to take off of my sewing desk. This Brother machine was a refurb also, and it came with a ton of extra goodies, like a walking foot, quilting guide, and bunches of other stuff. I'm loving it! I was so excited this weekend that I whipped up some burp cloths for a friend that is having a baby this summer. She and her husband are waiting to find out the gender at birth, hence the green. I love how they turned out! I used the New Conceptions Baby Burp Cloth pattern and put batting inside.

And then I stitched together a grocery bag that was already cut out. I used it today, and it worked great. It's so much nicer to have cute bags than ones that are advertising for stores. I can't wait to make more! I hear a craft day calling......

  • Awesome — looks like you are going to be tearing it up now with your new machine! :)

  • So exciting! It’s nice to have such wonderful husbands. :) The burp rags are such a good idea – I need to whip some of those up as well. . .

    Also, you might talk to Krista is you don’t have a plan for the old machine – it sounds like she has a person worthy of inheriting your old one. I’ve already committed to giving my old machine to another friend wanting to learn how to sew. . .

    And a craft day is certainly in order!
