2. Window shopping on Amazon.
I am forever in search of a fantastic deal for something that's been sitting on my (or someone in my family or my household's) wishlist (because yes, I have multiple Amazon wishlists [at present, count: 8]). Anywho.
Couple these two addictions with the advent of smart phones and my chronic insomnia and you have the perfect storm. So this morning at 5:32am when I found these little sewing machines (it really was 5:32am) I was so freaking excited, I had to share. Then I started thinking - how could I justify picking up one of these little beauts?? They'd be great for sew-ins and retreats, RIGHT?? Blerg.
I keep hoping I'll magically find my Singer Featherweight at a fantastical garage sale where the person selling has no idea the gem they have and sell it to me for, oh, like, $20. Wouldn't that be nice? Never happens.
I digress! Aren't these cute?
They appear to be a special edition of sorts of their "Simple" line of machines, and perhaps their (full sized) answer to Janome's SewMini machines? (pure speculation here on my part)

I do like them. And the price point at $79 makes me think again, they're trying to compete with Janome in the colorful portable machine market.
The 23 stitches including button holes makes it a pretty viable little machine.
(or maybe I'm trying to justify adding it to my wishlist, right? Oy.)
Honestly though, what I DO love is that sewing machine companies are starting to come out with more colors and facades and special editions, making our machines a bit more fun. Have you seen the new rose gold Bernina special edition? I don't know what it does - probably everything and all of the dishes in the kitchen sink - but damn, it looks pretty (...and damn, I wish I had that kind of money...)
Happy weekend, everyone!
