When life gives you a sewing machine, you go buy fabric!

Maybe life didn't give me too many lemons; instead I got a sewing machine :)

Some of you may recall this warning letter my sewing machine sent to my husband - well it got fixed all right, but somehow it is not the same anymore, and that can be noticed by the sheer lack of sewing related posts. For a long time now I really haven't had the desire to sit down and sew something , except for the pouches for my shop. 

Anyhow, I spied some interesting offers of new sewing machines I am eager to check out and I desperately want to get myself a new one. You may not have known this, but I have 3 sewing machines, none of which is my own. I got them from (grand)(in-law)mothers. So you can understand the desire to actually own one. So, if the stars are aligned, that might happen soon. 
And as I hinted in the title, I did buy some fabric (mostly tulle, taffeta and organza) and some lovely lace. I will be sewing some girls' accessories. I get excited just by thinking about it!

Have a nice weekend!

Happy shopping Maya, there are so many wonderful machines out there. The lace looks wonderful, how are you going to use it? Just curiosity ;-)

I never learned to sew -- a friend tried to teach me to use a sewing machine when I was in my early 20's. It didn't go so well. I will do simple hand sewing but even that isn't very good. I hope you get what you want very soon. I'm sure you will make lots of wonderful things when you do. Best wishes, Tammy
