Design-wise, I have been experimenting with colors. Spoonflower has an amazing tool that lets you change out colors with the greatest of ease. Result:

That's right, a floral and monster set specifically designed with moms in mind. It's hard to find mother and child sets that appeal to each side of the proverbial coin. I am going to be putting more of this idea into action soon.

And sewing machine update: she is working beautifully. It zips through and gets the job done in no time. So far all that has gotten done are simple test projects so that I can get a good feel for it before tackling anything serious.

Fixing a small worn out drawstring bag that was literally held together with safety pins was test run number one. I had a few issues with the severely frayed ends trying to get caught places they shouldn't, but a more severe trimming smoothed out the process.

Completing a quickly hand-stitched merging of re-purposed shirts was item number two. The gathered fabric  was a pain in one or two spots, but I was honestly shocked at how quickly I got those seams in there. There's no telling how long I put off this project just because it's such a hassle to do that many stitches manually. Yay for technology!!
