Dressed in black with eyes of grey

Brief post, because I *need* to spend some quality time making stuff today. But I wanted to share some of the fabulous things I bought online today. It was a good shopping day.

In the December issue of InStyle, which I took to read on the plane this weekend, I saw this gorgeous circle-link watch. And figured, in typical InStyle fashion (pun intended) that it was some kind of $10,000 designer watch. To my utter joy and surprise, it's a $65 watch from Fossil. So yay for me, and for impulse shopping on On a side note, it matches my wedding jewelry nicely, so for occasions that require a little bling, it'll be a nice dress watch.

My EtsyRain craft group was discussing this adorable Hello Kitty sewing machine by Janome on their message boards online. For a few years, I've wanted a cheap sewing machine to learn how to sew simple things. I keep thinking I should look on Craigslist for a used one, but never really remembered to do it. So this discussion sparked my interest again. Target had this machine on clearance, and it's gotten fabulous reviews online, surprising for something that looks so much like a cheap kid's toy. But alas, the Redmond Target had none. despite the display model being marked with a very tantalizing price of $24.98 (!!!). They wouldn't sell me the display model, so I found it on EBay, more expensive, but still far less than the list price. It's coming from Western Montana so I hope it'll be here next week or so. Yay!

Wish me luck, and those of you who sew should probably expect some dumb questions from me like "hey, what's this bobbin thing, anyway?"

  1. Hello Kitty sewing machine tips: be sure to by machine thread for it. It doesn't like quilting thread (which is super cheap at JoAnn's).

    Also, if you get one that transforms into a robot, I'll trade ya. ;)


I love comments, so please leave me your thoughts. Thanks in advance!

sharing is nice
