St. Nicholas was very generous to me this year.
This is the new sewing machine, which has *adjustable presser foot pressure.* It doesn't have a zillion computerized stitches and I have to manually move the needle up and down if it stops in the wrong level, but it does hum in a way that's unbelievable.
Also visible is the really neat add-on lighting kit: a set of LED bulbs attached to stickum, with their own on/off switch.
It's been getting its first workouts on the bibs and now on some mug rugs. Next up, either going back to R's dress--coming up on its finish date now--or starting the pink/blue/white quilt that has been going through square choices recently.
