It seems this whirlwind of a new found, joyful hobby has led me to quickly outgrow my entry level sewing machine. And since I get more and more engrossed in this activity with each passing day, it seemed appropriate to get a sewing machine with serious skills and room to grow into.
My new baby arrived on Thursday – the Juki TL-2010Q. I love this machine. Love, love, love it. It’s mean, it’s spacious, and the stitch quality is insanely good. I am quite impressed and really enjoying working with it so far.
Since I’m just starting out, I am slowly building my stash one quilting project at a time…and I was running low on fabric while simultaneously overflowing with ideas so it was time to make an excuse to buy more. So the fam and I took a little day trip up to Quilting is My Therapy and the Missouri Star Quilt Company. We had a blast and I got to stock up for some upcoming projects.
In the meantime, I have also been practicing some feather doodles on paper – trying to improve muscle memory.
And even sketching out some more quilt ideas:
What took me so long to discover quilting?! I’m having such a blast!!
