Taking the plunge!

Well, I think I officially just committed myself to more sewing projects. I ordered myself a sewing machine of my very own. Not that I had any problems with borrowing moms, but I found it was hard to give it back to her. Now that will no longer be an issue. I went with a Brother CS 6000, it was recommended via this blog. I am quite excited for it to arrive! I will be able to christen it with my crib skirt project!

Special thanks to Annie for the added encouragement in making this decision.


  1. I totally understand. But my mom made it easy for me by telling me that I didn't have to give her sewing machine back. :-) Although I'm sure your newer model will be much spiffier!

  2. Congrats! I was lucky and received my almost-new machine from a friend of my mom's who was downsizing.
    Btw, I love the fabrics you picked out!

  3. how exciting! i really want to upgrade. i should take a photo of my machine to share with you all, it's quite funny, and really really old! i'm considering sewing some maternity shirts...

    enjoy your new machine!

  4. Glad to be of service! Just let me know the next time you are in need of a little devil on your shoulder and I shall provide my services once more... or just cook another roast. Wow, I get you in lots of trouble!

  5. I say, "Excellent decision!" Mine's also pretty old so I'm a little jealous...maybe Cara and I should compare our relics.
