Sew along progress and New Machine Love

I'm almost done with my dress for the Sew Sweetness Jamie Dress Sew Along.  I just have the bottom hem left to do!  The completed dresses are rolling in each day to the flickr group, but there is still plenty of time to join.  The finished dresses aren't due until April 21st.  I may make another before then.
I picked some pretty crazy fabric!

I got a little sidetracked.  I've been learning how to use my new machine and I think I have her all figured out now!  Many, many thanks to my understanding husband who agreed to let me purchase her even though my Singer works fine.  I just really wanted a Bernina. I love how smooth it sews!

Here she is...

I know there are much fancier machines, but I think this one is perfect for my use.  I was looking at used machines, but found this one brand-spanking-new and on sale at my local sew and vac store.  I tried out a few features on the machines and fell madly in love with this one. 
Move over Silhouette machine, you have competition.


  1. I LOVE my Bernina too! I have other machines but my Bernina is my baby :o)
