New Baby

Oh man!  I bet I scared you with that title, huh?  No, I did NOT just give birth.  But I did get to go pick up my new machine at the Bernina dealer on Thursday night after work.  Yep, she's home.  And I heart her already!  So far everything about her is perfect.  10 little fingers, 10 little just kidding.  But she does has some really cool feet (hahahahah)  (I know, I crack myself UP)  Right out of the box, it was so easy to set her up, she fits perfectly in my sewing cabinet.  Ah, love.....
I finished the dress for my niece and the matching dress for her doll.  It was lots of fun to sew that little dress, but the really little one for the doll?  It was HARD!  Those itty bitty sleeves were killer.  But, it's done.

I know, the picture is blurry, I never said I was a good photographer.  But, I'm learning.  These shots turned out a little better.  Max the Cat wants the dress out of the way, so he can look outside.  Not happy with me, at all.
The Dallas Modern Quilt Guild held their first "Sew Day" today.  It was lots of fun, even if it was freezing cold and raining.  Great day to be inside sewing.  Yesterday was 70 and sunny.  Gotta love Texas in the spring!


  1. She's beautiful!! Congrats on your new "baby" hehe :)

  2. Love Love love the fabric you used on the dresses! And, I don't know machines, but she sure looks pretty!! :-)

  3. Oh My Gosh. That turned out so beautiful!!! WOW.

  4. That dress is so beautiful! I may have to try to start sewing clothes for my girls. I haven't ventured into that yet, except for simple little skirts.

    Thanks so much for sharing your birthday memory on my blog! It is a very precious memory!
