Mother's Day

I am so excited!!! I came home from a fabulous Mother's Day Dinner with the ladies at church and my son had a wonderful gift for me! He purchased me my first sewing machine. I can't hardly wait to use it. I hope that I don't break it. It is a Singer 1732, and everything that I've read about it says it is perfect for beginners.

I don't know a thing about bobbins, tension, and who knew there were so many different stitches! Well, hopefully before too long I'll be showing you all pictures of all my different projects! I am hoping to make my sister a comforter set for the new baby. I know that is probably not a beginner's project but I still want to try.

I would be grateful for any suggestions!

What a great son! He really loves his Mom to get a gift like that. I don't have any suggestions as I just use my machine for mending. Have fun with it and Happy Mothers Day!

I am so excited for you. What a great gift. You are going to do wonderful things with this. I also want to tell you that I have been praying for you. I have missed your post lately. My best friend also told me she just loves your blog and you are a blessing to her. I love ya!

I am so happy for you! I can't wait to see all of your projects! I read your other post about quitting your job. It sounds like you have many great ideas for making some extra money while you are in this season of life. If you get good on the machine, you could also sell things on Etsy. I am sure you will do well, you sound like you have a sweet spirit and are ready to embrace this new challenge. Have you linked your ebay stuff to your blog, if not, you should.
Have a great week!
