It’s been almost a month since my last post, and it’s been busy month. Between work and life I feel like I’ve been going non stop! I have been working on lots though in the last month (just haven’t been able to find the time to sit down and write) and I wanted to give you a sneak peak of what is coming up!!!
First, back in June the MR surprised me…on his birthday I might add…with an embroidery machine! I’ve been eyeing them for a couple years, and in the last year or so I have been seriously looking at finally taking the plunge and making the purchase (it can be a big investment, so it’s a decision that takes some time)! I have a couple sewing and embroidery machine dealers in my area, and since the spring, I had been spending about one Saturday a month at one of their shops picking their brains about the different types of machines and all their features! I was split between two models, and so I wanted to take some time to really think about it. So the MR, knowing that I would continue to put it off to avoid spending the money, took it upon himself to surprise me with one! He had taken his birthday off of work…and instead of spending the day
in his underwear playing video games (as I expected him to), he went and picked up my machine (he had heard enough about them over the spring to know exactly which ones I was looking at)!!! I came home from work that evening to find him grinning ear to ear and telling me to just go look in my craft room! Ever since then I’ve been up to my ears in stabilizer, thread and appliqué trimmings!! (So that may be one of the reasons I haven’t written in so long…it’s hard to pry me away from the hoops!! 🙂
Now…on to some of the things I’ve been working on….
So be sure to check back regularly over the next few weeks!!! It’s my goal to get at least one new post up a week!! I told myself no new projects until the current ones are on the blog…so that should be plenty of motivation to spend every moment away from the office typing away!!! 🙂
Have you been working on anything fun? Perhaps preparing for the new school year or the quickly approaching fall? If so, I’d love to hear all about it in the comments!!! 🙂
