Oh, Brother, where have thou been?

I got a Brother.  No, not the kind you are thinking of:).  A new Brother sewing machine!

And oh how this guy saves me time!  And got me inspired to sew again!  I was using my grandma's old sewing machine that no longer could wind a bobbin, so I would have to manually do it.  And it would get all caught up and tangled all the time.  Ugh.

So, I got this brand new shiny sewing machine for my birthday (or maybe it was Christmas?) and it took me until now to open it and read the manual.  But it was worth it!  It winds bobbins, loads the under-thread by itself and even threads its own needle!  Not to mention the precision with which it sews....amazing!  Anyway...I was quickly motivated to get right back into it...making nursing covers and personalized burp towels!

 First I make the trim...
 Then, I sew on the inital....
 And then I sew on the trim and voila!
