Be grateful that you don't have to live with me right now...cause I am a little full of myself. As you know my "sewing machine" died last week...very sad because I had just decided to try to be her friend again only to learn that she still hates me and is a piece of crap. After conferring with my money maker AKA honey we decided that with a cut here and there in our budget we could afford to get me a NEW MACHINE!!!!! I went to my local Joann's with my 50% off coupon in tow to have a look see and do a little damage. When I get there and ask for some help looking at/learning about the machines they have to offer, the lady informs me that they do not accept my coupons because they are a separate Viking dealer...(enter brakes noise here)...I go home sad...especially since she demonstrated a nice machine to me...I leave with the hope of finding one at Joann's online...where they take a poor girls coupon. Honey decides that if we are going to buy me a machine that we should do it right...he bought me a Viking!!!!! It works like a dream and I am totally in LOVE with it!!! It has a great warranty and comes with a free class!!! I piddled around with it Saturday night but Sunday I really got into it...sicky baby and all. :) I made Dexter the bear, Lillianna the bunny, a house door hanger and this sweet little dress for my niece...ALL last night!! :)
I won't be carrying these dresses in the shop but if you have to have one I would be glad to make it...there are a few different fabrics to choose from...I love these dresses because they can be worn as a dress in the warm weather, then with a shirt and jeans underneath in the colder weather. Contact me if you want one or more. :) I may or may not have made my son try it on...he may or may not have cried...I realize that I am by no means a pro but I hope I make my sewing pals proud...if it weren't for them I am sure I would not have ever touched a machine again. I am loving this SO much...I find myself rushing through chores and doing irreversible damage to my bladder cause I don't want to take a potty break...just so I can go cut out pattern pieces or work on something sewy. :) (Edited to add that I just realized I didn't eat lunch...it is 3pm!) All my new creations are in the shop...my feeling won't be hurt if you have to have them. :)
In other news....this rainbow walks across the floor each morning as the sun comes up...Moses likes to play with it...he especially likes it when I *hold* it in my hand.
Poor baby had a rough weekend...I think it was teething but you never can tell...he seems to be back to normal today so that is good.
He found it in himself to enjoy some tunes on daddy's ipod. Daddy makes all things better.
We didn't get the room painted this weekend because of sicky...but we did get the paint bought and I found a quart of mis-tint in a robins egg color for $3!! :) Maybe we can paint this week...
There are also lots of folks who want to participate in a spring swap. Yay!! It will be so fun...off the top of my head I am thinking $20-30 bucks...would you rather know who has your name or have it be a surprise? I'm working out the details in my head...
