So I have been the sewing the dress from you know where the last couple of weeks. I actually cut it out in May or June, sewed on it a bit and put it away. It is intended to be a fancy play dress for my granddaughter.

It is made out of Minkee silky material and polyester organza. Yech! What was I thinking?

I am finally making progress. I did break down and get a walking foot for my machine. I wanted to wait a bit as it was so expensive, but .... I am really glad I bought it now and not later!

One of things that I did for myself for Christmas was to sell my Janome CP1000, which I have used 7 times in 2 1/2 years, and used that money as a downpayment on upgrading my Bernina 430 to the Bernina 630 that I really wanted when I bought the 430 in September. I got it for a great price and I am really happy I did it.

Lest anyone think I am out of my mind, I still have my Babylock Evolve that has coverstitch capability, to use for those few times I need it. Ya see, I just don't sew with knits much and having to figure out more thread options/storage kinda drove me nuts.

Happy 2010!
