What we thought: I am in love with this machine! Here are a few pictures of a quilt I've started on to give as a gift this Christmas:

Can you tell I've been busy? :) This machine is amazing! It is easy-to-use and I'm loving the LCD screen, which my last machine didn't have...this one is a complete upgrade:) The number of functions is crazy ridiculous. Seriously, the possibilities with this wonderful machine are endless, so if the blog goes by the wayside, you'll know I've run off with my Laura Ashley Innov-is NX 800:) This machine is great for crafters at any stage of their craft and covers a lot of crafting ground:) Can you tell I'm positively gushing?! Brother has a sewing machine to fit everyone's needs and what better way to save money and add that hand-crafted touch to your Christmas gifts this year than to whip up something special for all your special someones? You could even use your sewing machine for holiday decorating...way cheaper and more satisfying than buying a new tablecloth and napkins:) I am planning on giving several handmade gifts this holiday season and I'll be keeping you posted over the next few months with updates on the results of my affair with the Innov-is NX 800:) Stay tuned later this week for a review of a wonderful new pattern I've found for holiday applique...now time to get to work...the holidays will be here sooner than you think!!

Disclosure: ABCD Diaries was given a machine for review purposes only. We were in no other way compensated. The opinions expressed in this post are ours and ours alone.
