I Am Back

I cant believe how long its been since I have posted.  Its been crazy busy with my new job, well kind of new.  I guess I have already been there for 6 months.  I am so amazingly lucky.  I love my job. Never mind getting up and going in.  I used to spend my whole Sunday miserable because I new I had to go to work the next day. But not anymore.  Sundays are awesome.  I work with awesome people too.  But the one piece missing is creating.  I have been working hard in my mind, but havent done much of it in reality.  Its now time to start again.  And what better motivation???? I got my daily email from HSN for the Todays Special, back on August 2.  This Singer machine is not on the market yet.  The mfg retail price with the added feet will be 979. But they had it for 379. AND offered it with 5 flex pays of 75.  I didnt wait 1/2 second to order this deal.  This was in the middle of the day and there was still a lot left, but the next day I got the dreaded "Back Order" email.  I was devastated.  I had given up all hope and got an email friday that it had been shipped!!! Happy Dance.  I had it delivered to work and waited for the UPS man like a kid waiting for Santa Clause.  Just as soon as I got in the door I had it unpacked and reading the manuel.  There is a open toe foot and can drop the feed dog so I can do thread painting soooo much easier and with much more freedom. There is a gathering foot, a serger foot and many many more.  I cut out a blouse for myself this last weekend and cant wait to sew it up.

My sister crocheted this afgan for me and my new living room decor:)  I love these colors.  They are my favorites.  I will always be a "70's" girl. So,,,, I wont be away for long, I hope to have so much to show and tell soon.
