This week I was shocked to receive a very large, very heavy UPS delivery that contained this BRAND NEW SEWING MACHINE! Turns out it was an early Christmas gift from my in-laws!!! In all fairness they did warn me a “package” was coming and sent me the tracking number, but still! After my initial astonishment I bounced around the house like a crazy person, clapping my hands like a gleeful little girl just presented with her first pony. Luckily my husband had the presence of mind to suggest I call and thank them right away.
I’ve had it now for a few days and I still shake my head in wonder when I see it. I’m embarrassed to admit that I have not used it yet. Part of the reason is that the two craft projects I’ve been working on the past few days required only hand-stitching. The other part is because I’m a little scared of it. I started reading the manual the day I got it, so I kind of get it. How fun will it be to have all those cool stitches and fancy feet available? Later today I’m going to tackle the next small sewing project on my list, so we’ll see how it goes. It’s bound to be easier than sewing with the old Sears Roebuck and Co. Kenmore that I’ve been using! 🙂
