Ladies, I got a new sewing machine! It is a Brother Dream Creator. It sews, quilts and embroiders. It has so many decorative stitches that it will take me a year to try them all. I am just so excited about it! It is just what I wanted and thought I would never be able to afford. A special "thank you" goes out to Somewhere Sewing and another goes out to Carol for recommending them to me. I got a wonderful deal. Got the 2 receiving blankets done and also the ruffled purse for my daughter Kaleigh. I was going to take pics to post but forgot and now they are with their new owners. Oh well. Will do better next time. Now I get to start on my oldest daughter Celeste's birthday quilt. I have about 5 weeks so wish me luck. It uses the quilt as you go technique. Has anyone made a quilt with that before and how did it go? Was it all you had hoped for? Let me know what you think. Hope you all had a great 4th of July!
