Not a 7 Series...

There's a story to accompany this machine...
I will tell it in a bit!

on another woolen dress, this time in green.

I've been thinking about purchasing a modern sewing machine...
Specifically, one of the new Bernina Series 7 machines.

Because...I don't know enough about them.
I can't offer recommendations on them when people ask me because I have no experience, and I'm not the kind of girl who talks about things she doesn't know!

At least that's my rationalization!
In truth it's partially because I have started thinking about embroidery, and partially because I am interested in the features they offer.

In the last week

I've dropped 2 lbs.

I'm using my treadmill every morning, 40 minutes at a shot.
If I can keep this up....I will be ready for next summer!

I'm doing

a weightloss/figure training thing..
basically I am going to start exercising/dieting/corseting, in order to get my waist down to the point where I don't feel like a balloon...
I found a shop to order corsets from very reasonably...
