I impulsively bought this machine 3-4 years ago and it has been sitting collecting dust since then. Over the last year, since I've been into sewing again, I've slowly got it out of the box, watched the DVD and finally, this morning, figured out how to use it..and wouldn't you know it, its really cool. I can now tag all of my quilts with fancy labels! Oh, and speaking of my impulsivity (is that a word?) and the buying of expensive machines and not using them right away..... I bought an Accuquilt Go a few months ago and haven't used that yet.....altho, it is out of the box.

Above: I like these elfy looking stockings (in non-traditional colors, of course)....especially the one all the way to the right. Might have to whip some up. Below: I found a huge bag of vintage patterns for $3 at the thrift store.....felt like I hit the lottery. Again. The thrifting lottery that is.

OMG! I love it!! Found this old timey Singer (you know where) the other day and Chuck bought it for me for my birthday! I see these around from time to time but alot of times the machine is gone or its beat to crap or just the table is for sale. Its in great shape and just needed a little dusting. So cool! Thanks, honey!!

....of traditional Christmas colors (or Christmas for that matter...but thats another post for another day). So I was happy to find this wintery pack by My Mind's Eye. I added a few of my own fabrics and started on making some blocks. I'll most likely separate the blocks with sashing so it doesn't look like mish-mash.
