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.
