Because I'm worth it!!!





I have a little surprise, and am very excited about it.  I've just purchased a needle felting attachment for my Bernina sewing machine.  It wasn't cheap, but not quite as much as a dedicated embellishing machine.  I honestly don't have the space to accommodate another machine, so this will introduce me to the wonderful world of needle felting.  I've watched the CD supplied with the kit, but still haven't really had the time to sit down and use it.  

When I first mentioned it to my hubby, he thought I really wanted the embellishing machine.  He said he remembered how in years gone by when I wanted a new sewing machine I'd talk about the 'top/new model', but I'd only get model such and such.  He'd tell me I was silly to not buy the most up to date, and I'd end up coming home with the 'newest' one................LOL.........  I assured him that was not the case with this little bit of machinery.  I just want something to play with, because I'm worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope I can find the time soon to learn how to use it.


Thank you all so very much again for such positive comments regarding my TAST samples.  Your comments really do give me the enthusiasm to continue in this way.

Cant wait to see what you create with your new attachment. I love Bernina machines and managed to wear one out a few years back. Have a very good Janome at the moment so I will see how good it is after another 20 years of sewing LOL.
