I think I'm in love...

With this sewing machine my sister has so generously let me use for a year. She's going to have a tough time trying to wrestle this puppy away from me! Both of my sisters were lucky and bought these Bernina sewing machines from my uncle at very low prices and I wasn't included in this deal because I'm down here in AZ. So not fair!
Anywho...I have accomplished much because of the ease of using this wonderful machine. I've taken in a pair of jeans that were 3 sizes to big, I've fixed a shirt that's been bugging me forever, I made curtains out of a sheet for Lauren's room, repurposed an ugly dress into a cover for a throw pillow,
and also with the scraps from the shirt I fixed I fashioned barbie this savvy new attire!
And that's just in the last 4 days...Oh just wait!!!
