my juki

the minute i got my tax refund money, i ordered a juki f600. i had been considering purchasing a janome 1000cpx, but when i saw what they were running and around that time, the boards over at patternreview.com were on fire about the new juki home sewing machines. so i found a really good price for one at a dealer about two hours away from me.

i ordered it and literally the next day, an hour before i got out of work, it was delivered AND LEFT at my apartment door. needless to say, i nearly had a heart attack wondering if someone would try to walk off with it before i could manage to get home. luckily, my sister had got off work early due to a dr’s appt and was on her way home and brought it in for me. whew!

unfortunately, i didn’t have my camera with me so i didn’t get any pictures of the unboxing of it. i was so excited because it was such a big purchase for me that after that day and cleaning up and rearranging my sewing area, i didn’t touch it for almost a month! 😦

so last week, i actually sat down and sewed a little wristlet that came out HORRIBLE! all i keep telling myself is: keep trying, no matter how shitty everything is looking, you’ll get better at it! it took me about three years to actually get knitting down. i was so bad at it, that i would stop and never finish anything. but just within the last six months, i’ve been seeing projects through and i’m getting way better! 🙂

coming up: pictures of my sewing area

best worst movie

A and i went to the drafthouse tonight to see this documentary. it was so exciting when we got there because apparently, they were previewing Toy Story 3 there as well and they were in full-on search mode! there was security everywhere and people going into see TS3 were getting it bad!

sorry if this post doesn’t make much sense, my break is about to end so i’m rushing….i’ll come back and finish/edit later. byeeee!

oh my gravy

saw man…or astroman for the first time last night since new year’s eve 1999 (when we all thought the world as we know it would come to a screeching halt) at mohawks and they STILL kick ass and take names!!! (thanks, A, for doing the research and finding all the good shows!)

also saw harlem and the strange boys the night before at red eyed fly and THAT show was really, really good as well. 🙂
