Something New For My Shop!

Hey Everyone!

I received a big package the other day ~ Yes, I did order it  :-)  A new sewing machine!  I am so excited to start using it but I've yet to take it out of the box. I ordered this specifically for embroidering.  I got the embroidery itch back in October when I joined two fellow Etsy shop owners in a local boutique.  Laurie of "Created By Laurie" has this same machine and just loves it.  Check out her shop ~ she does such beautiful work!  She  personalizes her items as well, talk about an inspiration! 
Here it is:
My new embroidery machine!

It looks SO intimidating to me. You can bet I'll be checking out all the youtube videos that I can find. {Not a big fan of the learning curve}  I'm told that there are many online sites to download designs right to your computer and then you plug into the machine and the machine knows what to do.  Wow.  I'm used to embroidery the old fashioned way.... with my hands and a needle & floss.  
I hope to show you new items with personalization soon! 
Until Next Time,


  1. Yay! I was thinking of writing and asking if you got it yet - and you did! :) Can't wait to see what you make!

    1. Yay is right!! Lol. I meant to write you after I added that post last night, but apparently I got side tracked! It's still in the box - eeeeks! I'm a little scared! I wish you lived a closer. I know you're an expert with it.
      No one can believe I've had it since Thursday and haven't personalized anything yet. Soon.... :-)


I love your comments :-)
