Sew Cute!

This is the really cute little sewing machine I got yesterday at the thrift store for $3. I tried it out this morning and it really works. It has some tension problems and I'm thinking that the way they say to thread it is the trouble. I plan to thread it a little differently and that should take care of the troubles. The stitches are pretty even and it has some good power for being so little! I'm so excited to have this little beauty so I can sew on the go. There will be no stopping me now. Tennis tournaments will now find me sewing off in a corner as I wait for my daughter to start playing. I won't be able to sew while she plays because it is loud. And I don't see me sewing full quilts on it, but I can sew some 4 patches or 9 patches. No more wasting time sitting around anymore.
These are all of the little pieces that came with it. The scissors don't cut anything so into the trash they go. It has a little foot pedle and can plug it in when I have power or it uses 4 AA batteries, which I have plenty of rechargable ones around here somewhere. It can use regular size spools of thread or you can just use a bobbin on the top for the top thread.
What a fun new toy for me :)
But, off to clean house so I can justify playing more. There are always clothes to wash around here. I think I should suggest everyone wear things 5 or 6 times before we wash them. That sure would cut down on my laundry time!
