What a weekend....a great weekend, but whew, felt like a really busy one. First things first...I finished the Snow White dress! It's far from perfect, but Lillian loves it, and that's what counts. I think it actually came out better than I thought it would, so that's a bonus. I tried to send a picture straight from my phone, but I can't seem to get that function working...like so many other techno problems right now.
I also made her an adorable little skirt. It was so easy to make, I made it Sat morning before going to our family picnic...everyone liked it...bonus! :) She didn't want to take it off that night. I think she just really liked that mom made it special just for her. I think I'm going to make her a couple more since she liked it so much. Of course, I didn't take any pictures of her wearing it, so I'll try and get one soon. :)
And lastly....I got a new sewing machine........ohhhh....the anxiety! I don't make large purchases like this! And I'm really a pretty big spaz when it comes to spending money. I have to research everything out there, compare prices EVERYWHERE, and then him-and-haw about it until I finally go out and buy it. Well, I knew I wanted a machine with more functions available, so I think I'd narrowed down a Brother on Walmart.com. But when I was in Walmart yesterday, they had an Embroidery/Sewing machine on clearance for $184 marked down from $380!!! That's HUGE! I've wanted to try embroidery, but didn't want to spend the money. I'm totally going through buyer's remorse, and having terrible anxiety about if I bought the right thing! Spazzy...I know! I like that it has the embroidery function, but I DO NOT like that I have to buy a separate piece to connect online (thought it was included...bummer), and it doesn't have all of the cute stitches that I wanted from the smaller Brother...I just don't know! Or as my husband has been teaching my daughter to say....IDK! :) (Too funny)!
