My New Toy!!!!!!!

Yesterday I happened to be in Joann's and found the perfect sewing machine! I thought long and hard about buying a sewing/embroidery machine.....and finally decided not to buy one. I decided on the Singer Confidence 7467. It has over 70 stitches and other features. It has my favorite stitch.......stretch stitch. I use it a lot when making clothing for Rich and I. I was lucky that they were having a sale and it was $100 off.....making it a good buy.

Of course, I had to buy several yards of fabric too! Didn't have too much fabric to use with the new machine............Yeah right, Shirley who are you trying to fool!!!!

I bought several cat fabrics so I can finish the Square in Square quilt blocks featuring a different cat fabric for each center. It's hard to find cat fabrics at our small Joann's that I don't already have in my stash. Sometime next week we are going into Medford and I will go to the big Joann's located there. That store is 3-4 times bigger than our Joann's in Roseburg. I can't wait to cruise through all the calicos and other fabrics.

I need to go and look at my sales flyer and see what else I can't live without. LOL!!!!!!!!

New Computer Soon!

Soon we will be shopping for a new computer. The one we are using was bought in 1999 and has Windows ME!!!!!!!!!! Do I need to say anything further about our old computer? It has been a pain in the butt since the day it came home from the store. Oh, well! Hope that the new one is better.
