I had been wanting a sewing machine for awhile now and talked about maybe getting one after the new year. Then Jeremy surprised me for Christmas with one. Wheeee! Soon after I sat down and started fiddling around with it and I have to say...I. love. it.

This is a little bird that has been fluttering around some blogs lately. I figured why not jump right in and it seemed to turn out. He's currently nesting on our bookshelf.

And then last week I decided I wanted to make a shoulder bag. It was so fun to make and I love how it turned out!

The inside pocket and fabric (which is a vintage 1930's print)
The button and loop

This was so much fun to make and I have loads of other ideas and can't wait to try them out. Ian's birthday is coming up and I'm going to make his present for him which I'm really really excited about.

Oh and I mentioned here about buying tons of yarn for a new ripple blanket I'm making. It's coming along really well so I'll share that soon too.

Andrea! Beautiful work, and you're only beginning! Have you sewed in the past? I've also been considering investing in a sewing machine, especially now w/ a little girl. Which model did Jeremy buy for you?

Thank you!!! It's been so much fun.

Karli...I'll email you but in case others are interested he got me the Singer Futura CE-150 model.
