what else is new?
what else is new? well, this sewing machine is new. it is not really 'new.' it is used. but, it is new to me. it is a baby lock quest plus, www.babylock.com/sewing/quest-plus. i brought it home yesterday. my 7 year-old son said, 'mom, you finally got the sewing machine you wanted.' he is right. i have wanted a sewing machine for a while. this past fall, my husband started to look on-line and did a bit of research about sewing machines. we looked to see what martha stewart was recommending at www.marthastewart.com/article/which-sewing-machine-is-right-for-you. looked at a few well-known brands. and then, it just seemed too overwhelming for me and i had to put it on hold. this spring, april to be exact, a close friend kori really, really wanted to take sewing lessons. she was pregnant with her third child. she said she was 'nesting.' so, she gathered together a group of friends and put together a sewing class. a few days after the first class, she had her baby about 4 weeks early. so, she was out and here we are, now in june and, the class, called kori's kids, continues. funny thing is that no one in the class even owned a sewing machine! until now.
