In My Mailbox, Part 2

Best Mail Week Ever!!!
On Saturday morning, guess what got dropped off at my apartment 5 days after I ordered it from fabric.com in the U.S.?

My first "toy". Each tax return year, we pick one "toy" after paying down debts. Somehow, so far, all of our "toys" have been video game consoles. Huh? I finally put my foot down and purchased this sewing machine after polling all of my friends and making sure its voltage wouldn't blow our Asian fuses. This is the sewing machine my SIL Amber has, and we do our shopping research in this family, right?
It is super computerized and has a ton of stitches, but to be honest, I really just wanted it because it can do twin-needle sewing, to look like this:

Twin needles are so crazy! I am excited!
I also got this cute hedgehog fabric, which Coco immediately said was hers:

And this fun sofa sorbet fabric, because I plan on making couch cushions with...couch fabric!


I am so so happy right now! Hubby is less than thrilled, because apparently sewing=spousal neglect. He works until 10 or 11 most nights, though, so after bedtime will be my sewing time. Maybe.
