Sure enough: It's WTF Wednesday.
Is this going a little overboard for interest in a couple of halter tops?
Sadly, it has to sit in the box, taunting me, until I get out from under this workpile.

You got it! Heh. I wonder what the chances are that it is NOT going to sneak out of that box soon. Be careful. Send it to work with David!

Oh, wow! WTF!!!!! (I couldn't resist :-)
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 06:46 AM
Is this to recycle the t-shirts into halters or are you making from scratch?
Cause, you know...fabric stash is a whole other issue!!
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 06:50 AM
Yeah, you're in trouble now. Fabric stash is a whole 'nother animal. (Think 1 yard of fabric = 1 skein of yarn.)
This is all about make low-cut thingies to wear in front of Jack, isn't it?

Yeah but then you can make some of my favorite things!
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 08:08 AM
Next you'll be taking classes and sewing up wedding dresses.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 08:10 AM
You actually BOUGHT a sewing machine? Brand new, in the box?? Heheheh... yeah, what Kathleen said about fabric stash... Have you been in a fabric store? (The fabric department of a big box doesn't count.) Next thing we know, you'll be QUILTING!!!
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 08:19 AM
Dude, you're knitting socks. Anything can happen.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 08:23 AM

What I can't do with a puter, I a wiz on the machine.
Rubber mate bins.............................for fabric

Overboard? Nah.....but then again, I'm a craft-enabler. ;)
Katy's comment about fabric stash has me cracking up here. We'll be watching you!
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 08:34 AM
Tsk, tsk. Another one bites the dust.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 08:41 AM
Yeay! Glad you got it, Cousin! In a year you'll wonder how you ever got on without it.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 09:26 AM
Ooooo, pretty toy! New things to do. More messes to make. More things to buy. Another way to play with colors and make warm things. Lucky, lucky you! (Try strip-piecing quilt tops, then tieing them as comforters. Quick gratification!)
Don't worry about the knitting. You can't use a sewing machine in the car.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 09:39 AM
Hah hah hah. You are getting sucked in :)
(Note to dear daughter: start planning all the fab things that mom can whip up for you with her new toy...)
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 09:42 AM
i so know what u mean.. got one over a month ago.. and i took it out of the box but havent turned it on yet!!! maybe on 27th when my sis in law comes over and helps me with it
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 09:47 AM
Awwww, that's great! I hope the decks get cleared soon so you can have fun with your new toy. BTW, i bought that T-shirt book, though I have yet to bust out the scissors and some oversized t's. Soon.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 09:59 AM
can't wait to see the fabric stash.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 10:47 AM
I don't know what I would do without my sewing machine! I have made curtains for three houses, repaired windsurfing sails ( not really recommended) made prom dresses, dance costumes and even a full blown ballet tutu on mine. I have just worked out that it is 25 year old too - remarkable!
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 10:50 AM
What are you going to do???? Waiting eagerly to see. Maybe you can post directions on how to wind the bobbin, I forgot how and I can't use my stinking sewing machine.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 11:02 AM
Oh man. The above Commenters of Norma are right--I've got two Rubbermaid bins (the big ones) full of fabric. Some of the fabric I purchased on a visit to my sister before she got married (store closing, British wool, 70% off...). My sister got married in 1999. Ahem.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 11:47 AM
Hey, don't knock the quilting. It's awesome, just not as versatile as knitting. (Although I could see Norma whipping out a few vests with wool batting, all quilted up, for the Dulaan cuties.)
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 12:08 PM
Oh I seriously wish I had a new sewing machine in the box waiting for me to make a moment to get to know her. I don't know what I'd do without my 20yo sewing machine.... but I sure could do a lot more with a newer one!! :)

'Tis the season, I guess. I bought one at the end of June!
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 12:54 PM
I have one and I can't remember the last time I used it. I'm not going to make kid clothes, though. I'm not that talented, and the ones my mother made me were serious contenders for the Loving Hands at Home look, if you know what I mean. I still cringe when I see yellow and red calico.
I did, however, get that t-shirt book. And it's your fault, Ms. Hottie in a Halter.

Great things come in small boxes.. looks like a nice machine.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 03:04 PM
Yay for sewing you have no business doing because you are already chock full of hobbies!!! (me too)
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 03:04 PM
TYPE faster...............................lawyers all just talk way too much, don't you think?
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 03:25 PM
Okay, we SO need a button for the WTF Wednesday. There's one for Thursday's theme over at Moonies which I immediately yoinked
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 03:28 PM
Yeah, I put something into the wine to get you sewing...heh heh heh my pretty!
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at 06:54 PM
Ya have to change it up once in a while--now instead of always saying 'let me finish this row', now you can replace that occassionally with, 'let me finish this seam!'
And of course, we're all craft-enablers! Go, Norma, Go!
As for me, I'm one machine and one building behind my hubby.
