New Toy!

I finally committed to buying a sewing machine! I have been talking about doing it since Aubrey was born... three years ago. I got a Brother CS6000i. I happen to think it is fantastic, but my opinions may be skewed a bit since the last sewing machine I ever used was rather old.

For my first project I decided to make Sierra a cute little sunhat. I LOVE the way it turned out. I am rather proud of myself. :P

It is rainy here today so I had to settle for crappy indoor pictures, but you have to admit she is rather adorable in it!

Aubrey has requested a hat of her own, so I guess I should get back to work. lol

Pictures, Finally!

After over a week of delays (sick baby followed by sick kid followed by sick me followed by sick husband) I finally have some pictures to show off my beautiful finished shawl!

I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out! I think see more two colored shawls in the future.
