Now what should I do with all this loveliness...

I have officially experienced my very own Cotton Blossoms Day! Not so elaborate as Camilles, but just as exciting none the less... The Jelly Rolls are sweet and the Layer Cakes are tasty, and I actually have a bolt of fabric! A whole bolt! And that FQB is just screamin my name... But I am having buyers remorse though, I really wish I would have bought more. Anyway, now I just need to get off my lazy butt and make something beautiful with it! I really feel like it showed up just in time. Now I have something to play with on my new sewing machine! Oh by the way this thing is incredible, and I barely know how to use it! But I did find a lovely surprise in the little cubby that holds your bobbins and such... A Surging attachment. When I told my Mother about this amazing machine, she said, "well, all you need now is a surger and you'll be all set." Well guess what! It came with one. So now with the darning foot and the extendable sewing surface and all the other doohickeys... (If I can figure them all out...) I can do anything my brain can think up! (Hopefully!) Here's something to look forward too, Jessie!

By the way have you noticed how I can't bring myself to take this beautiful fabric out of the plastic? Jonas came down with a cold and now I'm afraid he'll get boogers on it if I do. So until his rotten little cold goes away, it is plastic wrapped for good!

Oh and for everyone who is drooling over this fabric, you may have already heard here that it's finally in stores, but obviously because I have some, now you know for sure!

P.S. Mim, I have no idea what I could tell you about my machine, because I've already told you everything I know so far. All I know is that I think it can do just about anything! Now I just need to learn to do just about anything!

Yeah! Can't wait for that to be sitting on my table instead of yours! We may just have to do another project when you come in November. Hint Hint!

THE FABRIC is absolutely delicious. I will get some as soon as I get to Portland....when I have a US address to ship to(way cheaper) The only sad thing is that my mom made me promise I would never attempt another quilt again. Do you think she is trying to tell me something? Fine I will just hire you and your new machine to whip me up something....lol. Enjoy the machine!

Wow that is awesome that you got a new sewing machine! That fabric really is cute and I'm sure that you'll make magic out of it. I miss you guys... needless to say I've been feeling a tad emotional lately. Does nine months ever end?????? I haven't failed to tell Griff at least once a day that I'm NEVER doing this again. He thinks the jokes on me.

Yes you did have a Cotton Blossoms day! Seriously, I swear you have more than I do! How is that fair?? ;-) Lookin' good there on your table, but I can't wait to see what you make from it on your new machine. Keep us posted!

PS- the boogers are inevitable.

That was Camille. Darn this shared computer... Jarom's comment would be more like this:

Cool. Can Matt play Call of Duty?

So lame.

WOW! I'm impressed and jealous at the same time! Can't wait to see what you make :)
