My new toy

I gotta say,  my guardian angel was looking out for me on this deal.   I went to visit my daughter, who is about 4 hours away.  I decided to check out Craigslist for her area since I wasn't having any luck in my area.

I came across the deal of the day.   Found a Babylock Ellegante that had only been used about 3 times.   You could tell by looking at it that it wasn't used and abused.   The husband and wife were so nice and she just didn't sew any more.   I think the computerized part of the machine was too much.   She ended up throwing in a sewing machine cabinet, tons of books, embroidery cards and 160 spools of thread.   I got the deal of the day.

......and here she is, my new baby.

Diaper Bags

I love this diaper bag pattern so much, I decided to make myself one too.  Even though I won't be using it as a diaper bag,  mine will be a "carry all" bag.    :)   It's amazing how much sewing you can get done during a snow storm.   I've been in the house for 4 days straight.   Kind of nice getting some projects done.
