Dumpster Diving

So while I was cruising my parents neighborhood spring clean up piles I found this-

And turned it into this-

Here is a lil' closer up shot of the fabric, if ya know me at all its TOTALLY me. Black with hot pink, a favortie color combo of mine!

So my machine died. It's about 13 years old. Actually for the first 11 years of it's life it just sat - maybe that's why it died. Going from sitting in a closet to quilting as much as possible would be like never training for a marathon and then running it. Poor machine. I'm kinda going crazy without it, so I've been piecing a little on my daughters Hello Kitty Janome machine that we got at Target for $25. It actually runs a lot smoother than my old $400 singer, funny how things work out. Anyway any words of advice on what to buy? I'm still calling myself a beginner there's a lot to learn. I've also been crocheting more. Made this flower headband for my little sassy. She truly is one of my greatest creations yet. Just feeling really lucky to be blessed to see that smiling face.
