Oh, Brother!

Okay, this is a big crafting event for me. Drum roll please....I got my first sewing machine!  
It's a Brother XL 2600i, a great sewing machine for beginners like me. It's weird saying beginner because I have been "sewing" for a long time, just not with a machine. I am so used to do everything by hand with embroidery that I am amazed at how fast the sewing machine is. The one part I am finding difficult is that I do not know the machine all that well yet. It takes practice! So, once I get the hang of my shiny new toy I will be making this:
Butterick Pattern 5474-I will be using the kitchen fabric from my previous post to make the pink apron shown above! Once I get one apron down I plan on making more for gifts...or for myself they are all so darn cute! I also want to make a cloth cover for my sewing machine, so that is yet another project to look out for!
