this, that, and where I'm at!

My friend is in Florida right now, and she emailed this beautiful picture to me!  Doesn't it make you want to grab a swimsuit and go lay out in the sun?  That's what I was thinking when I had to bundle up to go outside this morning. 
Tis a long week thus far!!!!  I haven't done any sewing this week....and for a somewhat good reason!  I got a new sewing machine!!!!!!!!  Yes, I'm super excited!  It isn't new, new, but it's only a year that's new enough for me.  It's fancier than anything I've ever worked with.  I've read through the instruction manual once, but I'm afraid once won't be enough.  It's got so many features and buttons!!! 
It kinda looks like this, except I think it's made by a different company.  I suppose I'll have to say goodbye to my other poor old sewing machine, Matilda.  I named her Matilda, so that when she was sewing away, I could sing Waltzing Matilda to her.  (Yeah, I'm not exactly normal!) 
I'll have to come up with a suitable name for this new baby! 
I'm hoping to do another refashion project soon. I've collected a bunch of inspirational links and photos.  Now it's just--finding the victim and getting to work.  Somewheres between my drawing, chores, quilting, and what-not I'll get it done!
Until next time.....Happy Farming!!! 
 ( Or sewing, crafting, or blogging...whichever applies to you   :)
