Sewing Machine

I finally got around to opening my new sewing machine! I actually bought it quite a long time ago but was too scared to open it and try it out. I'm not that great @ sewing on a machine but I want to change that. Since it's getting so hot out, it's not very comfortable to have a lap full of wool/yarn (which is why my Mason-Dixon Log Cabin afghan is hibernating right now). I'm hoping to get a bit better with the machine and finish up some projects I've been wanting to do for awhile. I have a little fabric lying around and a bag I want to line so I'm going to start with that.

The price was orginally $100 @ Walmart ($130 @ Joann's for this model) but I paid $50 for it!!! S-C-O-R-E!!!

It does alot of cool stitches/buttonholes and comes with a DVD which is good for b/c I'm more of a visual learner and have a hard time with books/manuels. Thats how I taught myself to knit and crochet; DVD's/YouTube videos/ and then went back to the Stitch n' Bitch books when I had the basics downpat. Wish me luck!
