yesterday i was reunited with a singer

I ventured into the dark basement and saw the box that had been calling my name for 8 long years.  I had ignored it's calling for some time and then decided that it was time. 

So, Singer and I had some words as I was trying to thread it, read directions, figure out what a bobbin is, and tell my 4 year old that the couch is not a trampoline.  After a call to Mom and her explanation of what a bobbin is for, I figured it out and we were HAPPY! 
Several scraps later and about 2 hours of total sew time (many of you might be laughing), but I made....(drum roll please...)


my throw pillow
It's not perfect, but it's my first sewing project in 8 years and my 2nd sewing project ever.  Not too shabby, or is it?
Have you picked up my button yet?  Please spread the buzz if you can.  I wonder who follower number 50 will be?

  4. Hi Alyssa, you have a beautiful blog - I'm very happy to be follower 50!!

    You are a braver woman than I! The pillow looks great. I am definitely not a person that can sew and altho' I have a sewing machine - we do not have a good relationship!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. Looking forward to your next post. Michelle

  5. I LOVE your pillow, you & singer make a good couple! :)
