Another New Obsession

Well, I have finally caught my breath and have a new crafting obsession. I am so excited. Its a Brother CS-6000i computerized sewing machine with 60 stitches.

I'm still learning. I haven't touched a sewing machine since I was in the 7th grade. My mother was a very accomplished seamstress and she tried to show me how. I just wasn't that interested. I wish she was still around now to show me. But I'm sure she would be very proud.

My first project was a very easy purple pin cushion. You can see it in the foreground of the picture. I have now started with the fabric stash. Another expensive hobby. My husband is still shaking his head. I told him he better let me do this or he better start paying for therapy. All this crafting keeps me sane.

I haven't really been doing too much crafting lately. Just a little doodle embroidery and some knitting but nothing to really show yet. I want to start a small quilt and have been surfing blogs and the internet looking at all the wonderful quilts others have made. Wow, there are some wonderful quilts out there in blogland!
