Trading Up?…

Microsoft clip art
As I sewed the borders on the 2011 Butterfly quilt last night, my mind began to consider….

I had just finished the Jacob’s Ladder quilt and had pinned the label on the back to be sewn down.  I set it aside and began sewing the borders on the butterfly quilt.  

I thought to myself… “now I need a machine that could do a little bit of embroidery… that way I can stitch out my labels instead of writing them out with permanent marker…”

This of course is added to the wish list I have with a long arm quilting machine on it.    But seriously… got to thinking about it… I think I’ll search for a sewing machine that I can use for sewing and just a little bit of embroidery. 

The long arm quilting machine is still on the list… that one I will have plan and budget for. 🙂

    Linda, Thanks for becoming a follower!

    I hope I can find a machine that I want and can afford. I know I will, I just have to keep looking until I find the one for me. 🙂

    I would love a long arm machine but don't see that happening in my future. There are many inexpensive embroidery machines out there – perhaps you can even find a used one so you can create your personal labels.

    I completely understand…

    I will have to add on to my house or buy a bigger one when I get a long arm machine. lol

    I have done a little research on a new sewing machine with embroidery capability. I think I am going to have to save up or cut back on some of my spending now to get one. 🙂 It will be worth it.
