For months, it really hadn't bothered me not having a sewing machine after I returned the Janome Sew Petite to QVC. Until yesterday!! I'm not sure what came over me, but a little bird (thanks Jen) told me some great things about the Kenmore Mini Ultra and I just had to have it. So yes...I bought it while it was on sale and picked it up today. I played with it tonight once the kids were asleep. I haven't been doing any scrapping during the week, but I got so inspired I had to start this layout a couple of days early.
