My newest Toy

Well I am so sorry that I have been absent from posting but this summer has proven to be very busy... I do hope all of you have had a great summer and the weather was good to you. So with that said:

 
 
 
Happy Autumn
 
With the air being cold and crisp it is the perfect time of year to start that baking of breads and goodies in the oven, get the hot apple cider cooking and organize those fall and winter projects.
 
I am designing up a storm, and working on some YouTube Tutorials with the hopes of releasing them at the beginning of the year. I also have been busy getting ready to go to Quilt Market for this October.
 
I also got myself a new toy for embroidery that I would love to share with all of you.
 
Last Saturday I met up with a friend who was selling stuff from a friends house down south and amongst one of the things along with making fabric was this beauty.
 

Yup it's a Baby Lock Ellegante! What a wonderful machine this is... I was playing last night and created a few things with the sewing part of the machine. It isn't anything great but nonetheless I was getting the feel for my machine.




Now if you think that's kool check this out I think I figured the embroidery part out too. I did this, this morning, figuring that I should try and use the hoops and the programmable stuff stored in the flash drive I was given and entered my hubby's name. So I thought I would make something for my hubby out of this. I started with his name. How do you like this:
 
 


I am hoping to make a mug rug or something in hopes he likes it... I think I am going to like this machine a whole lot and thread will be on my list when I go to Houston this October for sure...
