Steve surprised me with a new sewing machine for Christmas. As I opened the wrapping paper I was a little dismayed to see the amount of buttons this puppy came with. It looked complicated. Within about 10 or 15 minutes I had the bobbin loaded, the machine threaded and started sewing some test patterns. Turns out it is pretty easy. You can even push a button and it will sew on its own. Cruise control. It is pretty darn awesome. This machine does not come close to Stephanie's fancy one - but for a point and shoot gal like me, it's just fine.
I don't plan on getting rid of my vintage Kenmore...when my sisters visit we will be able to do twice the sewing.
