Sew Wonderful

So I have been doing a lot of sewing lately and I got a few emails asking what kind of sewing machine do you use? Well, my sewing machine is not at all glamorous, but it gets the work done, or at least for the most part. lol. I currently own a Kenmore 14 stitch. Year??? I'm not sure, but let's just say this baby is vintage. Here is my current little work horse.......


I have been thinking a lot about getting a new sewing machine so I can start selling my Blythe creations. While my current machine gets the job done, by new means is it up to par to sell things. It often gets jammed and loose threads randomly strewing about, but I love it all the same. So.......I have been looking at this one...


A Brother CS6000I....sounds fancy huh?? lol. Well it looks like it. It's computerized, has a ton of great functions, stitches and most of all it's a super great price over at Amazon, and has AMAZING reviews (check it out). So maybe if I put some money aside over the next few weeks I might splurge and get it. Does anyone else have any sewing machine recommendations? Let me know!

I also got this adorable pattern at Joann's for 99 cents! I can't wait to make this owl pincushion!!!

I'm so excited for you to get that machine! I'm in a sewing class right now and I've learned that my personal machine is awful. I'm totally going to get a husqvarna emerald 118. Not fancy, but a much needed upgrade. :D
