woke up this morning, looked on craigs list, and found this for $60. so i ran out the house, got some cash, and went to find it, and it was still available!!!! it has a bunch of pressure foot attachments, including a ruffler foot. I love it, everything moves so smoothly, and it even had the original manual. which is good cause i have no clue how to use it. its only missing the belt to turn the needle. it has a couple extra bobbins too, and some really old spools. i love it. the date on the manual say 1912.

I also made a new purse, but did not manage to follow Lola's mystery, cause i used that fabric for this purse, since i wanted it to use the next day. again, no pics, but i used the fabric i posted in a previous post.
I officially have things listed in my artfire store, all 3 of them, and there is a give away in the works, i'm building up something fantastic for it.

so my artfire is deathbydenim.artfire.com
but there's nothing there yet. once there is, I will have a link on my side bar, and probably a traffic generating give away of some sort.
also, they have a limited number of $ 7 accounts left, its less that 500 out of 5,000, so check it out soon if you're interested,
say you heard from me, first 10 people will be entered into a special drawing from me. go to http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=sevenforlife&afuid=18987

I am so excited to announce I bought a 1/4 foot for my machine for $5. not $25 like the sewing machine store was asking. Joann's had a whole section of $5 or less pressure feet for low shank machines, and i think i will go pick up some more even tho i don't know what i would use it for. There was a ruffler thing, and a Teflon foot, and something with a roller on it. I can't pass up a deal like that. And when I opened it was metal, not plastic; i had been concerned because it was sooo light, but its metal, and i bought a back up. Needless to say, all my seams have been more 1/4 inch before this, that thing is tiny. I also have to make sure my needle is in the middle not the left, or i will break the needle. I can see this happening.
I have my fabric picked out for Lola's mystery purse along, its yummy. And I was brave and got magnetic clasp thingy to close the purse with, so hopefully i don't kill it.
My goal is to post pics tomorrow, of things made, and something i received for a swap.
I can't believe its been more than a week since I've posted.

i was answering phones during this meeting, so i couldn't look at her like she was talking crazy.
after a private meeting with her i found i would be working later start times(11am or noon instead of 10am), as well as fewer hours(60 instead of 80 per pay period of 2 weeks).
so anyone looking to hire a great preschool teacher/nanny/babysitter/cake-decorator/lesson-planner/amateur-quilter/amateur-photographer/phone-dispatcher in the Orange County CA area, shoot me an email, its on on my profile.
I'm looking for work, people.
