Oh Yea!

So it's no secret that I am a beginner at sewing. Actually is there is a level before beginner that would be me. My machine broke back before Christmas and I just now took it to get fixed. I had a quick lesson at the Sewing machine repair store as well. Want to know what the lesson was? You can't just put any Singer brand bobbin in a Singer machine. Apparently different machines require different bobbins. Yep, I didn't know that and used the wrong bobbin causing the bobbin casing (not sure if this is the official term or not) to break thus the machine wouldn't work. The man looked at me like I was an idiot. I can't be too mad at him because he didn't charge me the full price for repairing it and even sold me some of the correct bobbins. I now have my sewing machine back and am trying to decide on what to make on it first.

Wow, long time no post!

So I admit I have been a slacker. I have started several posts but my follow through doesn't seem to be working very well. I am now working on improving that. I have several crafts planned in the next few weeks that I am excited about sharing with y'all! I have had a minor set back. My sewing machine broke. Now, I am a very beginner sewer and my machine jammed up something fierce! So I managed to get it all unjammed (or so I thought) but now it won't work. I am taking it in to the sewing machine shop so hopefully they can repair it and hopefully it won't cost me an arm and a leg.

In other news...I won't have to worry about it if I win this contest over at

I would love to win the embroidery machine! Oh the crafting I could do! I can't wait to see what all videos they come out with because I am very much a visual learner. So hop on over there and check out their site and become a follower. However, don't feel the need to leave any comments or enter the contest because.... frankly, I don't want the competition! (just kidding... kinda!)
