I Bought a Sewing Machine on a Whim

Out shopping with my daughters one day, we were wandering through the aisles of a large retail store, just doing a little window shopping.  Surprisingly, it was the kind of day when I was in the mood to shop, so I bought a few cute seasonal items for the house….new placemats, glasses and a new “spring-ish” flower arrangement.  

My eye was caught suddenly by the row of sewing machines.  On a whim, I decided that we should purchase a sewing machine and make some new home décor items instead of purchasing them.  Normally, I would read several sewing machine reviews before making a large purchase like this, but on this day I decided to go ahead and splurge.

I look around at the machines, decided which one looked like a good basic beginning machine, and got out my wallet.  After another stop at the fabric store where we picked out some new material for curtains for each of the girls’ bedrooms, we headed home eager to try out our purchase.  It was fantastic!  We use the machine regularly and we love it!  No sewing machine reviews, no comparison shopping, just a whim purchase.  It could have turned out terribly but we were lucky
