Like a hole in the head

That’s how bad I need a new sewing machine. I have to tell you that right up front. I do not NEED a new sewing machine. However, I can still look at sewing machines, right? Of course I can! I do enjoy reading sewing machine reviews, and I do pass by and see the new models from time to time, but I just can’t justify buying a new sewing machine. My basic Brother has served me well for over 20 years, and it’s seems cruel to put it out to pasture for no good reason. Although a few years ago when one of the kids knackered the tension, and it took me a few WEEKS to figure out what was wrong, I was ready to put it out the door. Yeah, I’m big on the operator error.

I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around the long arm machine, that quilters use, for instance. How do you control that great pile of fabric from way over there? I guess I will have to see it in operation before I “get it”. I do like the way sergers finish seams so neatly, but believe it or not, I am not overly interested in an embroidering machine. I figure I can buy a butt-load of patches for the cost of one of those machines, ykwim?

Ok, now I want to do some stitching. Maybe that three-quarters quilted quilt needs attention!
