My Big Suprise

Actually, this gift was no where near a surprise to me. But I am almost hyperventilating over how excited I am about it!

Wanna know what 'it' is? I'll give you a few hints:

  • It came in a large brown box with red lettering.
  • It's quite heavy.
  • I can use it for all sorts of crafts.
  • It is a great addition to my Woman Cave.
  • I won't need to borrow a large machine from my Aunt anymore.

Did you guess what it is, yet?  No?  Would you like a photo hint?

Okay, you probably have guessed by now that I got a sewing machine for Christmas.....and not just any sewing machine, a Bernina! I told you it was hyperventilating good!!!

Now, all I need to do is de-junk clean up my studio so that the machine has room to sit on my desk-which is currently under almost a foot of junk mess stuff. Then all my crafting problems will be solved; the machine can do it all for me!

Wait--What do you mean that's not how it works?!?! Are you kidding me?

Ah man....well, I guess I was just dreaming. At least the sewing machine IS real, AND it's all mine...mwahhahhahh!!!! (that was an evil laugh, case you missed it) Hopefully my other crafting supplies don't get too jealous; I wouldn't want a craft riot on my hands...or would that be a riot? hmmm...

What was it like for you to get your first sewing machine? Was it passed down to you from an older generation, or did you buy your own machine to pass onto future generations? What are some of your favorite features???
