I'm also excited for my new/first sewing machine! I sometimes enjoy doing more crafty-type things, away from the computer or sketchbook. And I've had so many ideas floating around in my head for things to sew. And now I finally have that chance!
Also, while I was in Chicago, I was able to go to the Art Institute of Chicago and see some pretty inspiring artwork. Georgia O'Keeffe and Monet were two of my favorites. It's pretty awesome seeing paintings that I had only seen in textbooks. Seeing them up close is amazing!
2013 was great and I did so many things! And so far, 2014 has been off to a great start! And tomorrow I start a new job! Wish me luck!
