As Requested, The Machine

I got it Friday morning, brought it home, set the box on the floor, and didn't get a chance to touch it until Sunday evening:

Yes, a Babylock Imagine. I chose Babylock over Viking because of the ease of threading (which, had you seen me trying to thread the Babylock Sunday night, you would've realized what a brilliant move that was on my part, given how inept I was even with the super-simple Babylock "Woosh" to help me).

First project up is going to be Halloween costumes. We have a bolt of bright pink satin-like fabric, we have a pattern. We have no notions, though, like bright pink thread (we seem to have used it all up, or else it's lost in one of the kids' rooms), single-fold bias tape, maybe even another package of 1/4 inch elastic.

But, of course, we have to wait to get the notions until after our field trip today. And then, of course, we have dance class this afternoon, yada, yada, yada.

Sigh. I've got the machine, now I desperately need time to actually use it.

It looks beautiful!!! Congrats!

on the use (or lack there of), I totally understand :)

Today, I made some curtains and rice bags. Oh the life of the exciting sewer ;)

I'm hoping that if I avoid Halloween long enough, maybe it will go away. What do you think my chances are?
