I enjoyed a nice long weekend disconnected mostly from technology and chores! I have over 200 blog posts in my reader and am slowly connecting back in and reading about your lovely weekends and projects!
I also got a new sewing machine yesterday. The one I had been using will always have a special place in my heart (it was my Grandma's), but I have to say that I should have made this upgrade sooner.
I have spent a lot of time pouring through the manual to learn how to wind my bobbin, thread the machine, and change stitches. I was up and running in a matter of 15 minutes. I really like how intuitive this machine seems!
And I got it just in time for the next Friday Night Sew-in this Friday with Hand Made by Heidi and Crafty Vegas Mom.
It's all about committing to some sewing time. Don't have to twist my arm.
1. Go here and enter your blog info below. **If you don't have a blog - you can enter the Flickr group link as your URL.
2. Make a post on your blog - letting everyone know about the sew-in. Spread the word..
3. On Friday – 4/15/11- Get your house settled, put on your comfy jammies.. maybe make a cup of tea or pour a glass of wine.. and sit down to work on some of those projects. Can't wait!!
4. Then, sometime on Saturday - publish a post about what you worked on or show a picture or two on Flickr. There is a FNSI group on Flickr if you haven't already joined. Totally optional.
And finally - on Sunday 4/17/11, all participants are entered into a drawing for the GIVEAWAY!!
Sounds fun doesn't it?
I am sure I will be playing with my machine all week, but I can't wait to see how it holds up to a long happy night of sewing away!
Much love for Japan
