First post of hopefully many

Hello.  Welcome to my sewing and knitting blog. 

I figure the best way to start this blog is to show my sewing machine.

It is a Singer 4525 - an oldie but a workhorse for me.

I have had this machine for over 22 years.  My husband got it for me as a Christmas gift.  It is probably one of the best gifts I have ever been given.  It has provided alot of pleasure for me.  The only problems the machine has had was from user error.  I have purchased several feet for the machine over the years, and am still learning how to use them all.

I would like to get an embroidery machine, but that will have to wait for another year most likely.

Below are some fabrics that I aquired on my recent trip to Hancock Fabrics.  The pink polka dots will be become a top, as will the black/flower/peacock fabric with the teal/gold fabric as trim (collar, belt, etc.).  The grey material will become pants and possibly there will be enought to make a skirt.  The orange/brown will become a sweater jacket and the last fabric will be made into a skirt.

Next week, I will post some pictures of garments I have recently finish.

God bless.
