Pretty in Pink for Baby E

I just finished this cute quilt top for my friend's new baby. I think I might quilt it with flowers all over, since I had so much fun with those on little Baby B's quilt.

I have no willpower.....

I couldn't wait. I just couldn't. I couldn't stand walking past my sewing room and seeing the blank spot anymore. I was in Target and I admit it was on impulse, but this sewing machine came with a walking foot....a walking foot! That's all I needed to know. It was on sale for only $99 and that was fine with me. So I bought it. It's a Brother XL-3750. I'm very excited to get to know it. At least it will keep me going until I get my Pfaff back or until I buy a new Pfaff someday.

Sew Mama Sew Sewing Machine Meme

Weird that I was just crying about missing my sewing machine that is broken and then I saw this today! So here is my response:

I have a Pfaff 1222E Electronic.

I have had it a little over 24years.

I am not sure what the cost was. At the time I worked at my Dad's fabric store and he gave it to me when I was pregnant with my daughter. They sold them there, but I can't remember the cost.

I used to sew alot when my kids were little. Then it sat for years. I just started quilting about a year ago and brought it out again.

I love my machine. I have't named it but I should. I love it so much.

I haven't used all the features, but I like the walking foot built in. I love that I have a million feet for it.

The only thing that drives me nuts right now is it is broken, and I am hoping to get it fixed. Probably got brittle sitting all those years. I am so hoping it is fixable. I don't think I can live without it!!!! I was dragging it around with me, but I am now going to find another one to drag around and I will leave this one home and treat it kindly. This blog will be so helpful to find something new.

I told my story earlier. I have so many memories on this machine. I wish for it to be fixed! I want it to be happy sewing!

I would recommend this machine to others, because it is a good one. I'm sure this one is not made anymore.

My dream machine would be to get this one back. Please oh Please let it be fixable.

Missing You....... Boo Hoo

My sewing machine that I've had forever died and I am so sad. I miss it every day. I'm hoping it's fixable because I don't think I can live without it Seriously. My heart is wrapped around it. But I have been kind of looking around for an inexpensive one that I can drag around and if I can get this one fixed I'll leave it at home and pamper it like I should have. Anyone found any good deals on a simple machine that they love?
