New beginnings

My mom and stepdad got me a sewing machine for an early birthday present. I can't tell if this is a good idea and the beginning of a beautiful thing, or something that will just collect dust and take up space.

I would love to start quilting. There is something so deliciously old fashioned and homey about quilts. I'm still working on my knitted quilt that I started in August. It's been slow going, but I'm now on my eighth square and it's coming along.

That's my beautiful turquoise wool although the crappy webcam photo doesn't do it justice. I have today and tomorrow off, so I can get a bit more work in on this one, and play around with my new sewing machine.
