For Christmas, my sweet husband gave me a new sewing machine (my first). It was an extremely thoughtful gift, because I had been wanting one but feeling intimidated by the research necessary to buy one. An interest in and a penchant for research, however, is one of Matt's quirks and strengths. So he researched and selected a machine (a nice Brother), and now I'm a happy camper! Here I am--growing ever more domestic in my pursuits.
Now I just have to learn how to sew . . . .
