A Big Present (for my self)

Hi friends...hope you're all have a great weekend.
I'm so excited this weekend. Yesterday I finally decided to buy a sewing machine!!! It was really a big present for my own haha...
I never bought a present for myself before as long as I remembered :)

Maybe this Sunday I'll spend the day trying to sew with it. Since this is really a new thing for me ( I never sew with sewing machine before)I'm sure I need couple of hours to try and make a good stitches.

Yesterday, when I tried..
at first it was moving smoothly, then came the 2 boys who also excited with the machine and all the stitch display, selector dial, the little bulb that turn on when the machine works, so many....both of them try everything they can and....the needle stuck, not moving again...haha...
So I left it for a while, go to sleep.
Hope today I can sew with it.
I thought at first it would be so easy to operate like the tag I saw in the package box, but still it wasn't easy at all for me.

Need times to adjust from hand sewing to a machine. So...wish me luck!!


  1. Henny, Congratulations on your new purchase!! That is so exciting. Once you get going and really start to sew with it you will just love it! I can't wait to see what you will make with your new machine

  2. congratulations! i know you are going to love it!

  3. Wow what a wonderful present for yourself Henny, you will work it out in now time.

    In answer to you question about my work, I work in aged cared, visiting elderly people in their own home, helping with showers, shopping, social visits and some light cooking and housework, different for all the people and different everyday. It is a good job but I just like to know my work roster.
    Sorry to ramble here so long.

  4. Henny, you'll catch on soon enough...just remember to breath when you're sewing-when I first started sewing by machine, I would hold my breath! (That was 17 years ago :)

    Glad you liked my b&w challenge log cabin!

    I'll be back to see how you're doing!

  5. Playing with your new machine will be so much fun! : )

  6. Congratulations on your new machine. Just take some fabric and start playing, trying out the stitches. You'll wonder what you ever did without one!

  7. Good for you, Henny! You will love it. It does take some time. Just take some scrap fabric and give it a go. It will be so much fun.
    I am happy for you.

  8. That's a wonderful gift you got for yourself. Hope you enjoy making beautiful things.

  9. Congratulations, Henny!
    You'll be sewing up a storm in no time! If you can, check out tutorial videos on youtube - you may find some help there. Be sure to read the owner's manual thoroughly - that really helped me when I got my 1st machine and I had been using my mom's machine.
