My 6440

FINALLY! I finally bought my Viking 6440 from ebay. I'm super excited about having a reliable quality constructed sewing machine!

I highly recommend that if you like to sew more than the occasional pillow - you invest in a good machine. (which I learned the hard way after stupidly buying 2 cheap new plastic Singers - which haven't been well made since the sixties) Personally I love the older 70s/80s models - still made of metal, but easy to use. I considered a new Bernina or White machine, but I really have no use for the computerized components that seem to really be geared towards quilters.

Current Wants

It's been so long since I've posted! Like everything in my life, the energy to stay committed to an idea/project comes and goes...but I plan on posting more!


Martha Stewart's "Feaux Bois" Duvet: I'm obsessed with fake wood grain lateley, and the ikea duvet I've got right now is really not working well in my room. Isn't this lovely?

EQ3's "Beacon" rug: RUGS! Erg! Good ones are alway way out of my budget, which is why I have a $30 Lowe's special in my living room. At $299 - this is dangerously close to winding up on my credit card. sigh

Dutch Oven: If I had this - I would be cooking in my backyard right now.
