Need To Get Motivated

Yeah i still have two outfits sitting on my sewing desk needing to be sewn up.

Maybe i'll attempt to sew after lunch today.


Oh yeah anyone that is constantly taking pictures if you don't have a date stamp on your pictures how do you keep your pictures organized ? I'm thinking of removing the date stamp setting off my camera so i don't have the ugly yellow date stamp on my pictures anymore.

Missing Posting Pictures

I'm really missing posting pictures. I still need to buy a power supply cord off ebay for my WD external hard drive that is at most 1yr old ugg, it just stoped working one day a month or so back. I am not sure about putting pictures on the computer since it has a re-furbished motherboard, the computer was 2yrs old when it stopped working.

Sewing Machine Month

What brand and model do you have? Husqvarna Viking Designer SE with upgrade to LE

How long have you had it? Since July 2007

How much does that machine cost (approximately)? $2,026- $2,998.00 * going off prices on ebay one was brand new in box other was upgraded to LE*

What types of things do you sew (i.e. quilting, clothing, handbags, home dec projects, etc.)? clothing,hom dec projects,handbags, a few baby carriers

How much do you sew? How much wear and tear does the machine get? Lately not a lot, It's gotten a bit of use though. I'm trying to use it more regularly again.

Do you like/love/hate your machine? Are you ambivalent? Passionate? Does she have a name?LOVE IT, Passionate, No Name though

What features does your machine have that work well for you? Everything, it's a combo machine so i can also do embroidery.

Is there anything that drives you nuts about your machine? How easily the little hook for the automatic threader gets bent, very annoying since right now it's bent and doesn't work.

Do you have a great story to share about your machine (i.e., Found it under the Christmas tree? Dropped it on the kitchen floor? Sewed your fingernail to your zipper?, Got it from your Great Grandma?, etc.!)? We want to hear it! My wonderful mom bought my machine for me, it was bought with the purpose of selling some baby clothing with embroidery done on the items but we never got around to it.

Would you recommend the machine to others? Why? Yes, it's a great machine for the amount and well worth it since it's a combo machine.

What factors do you think are important to consider when looking for a new machine?Features you want, price

Do you have a dream machine? I have my dream sewing machine.
