Update to my mutterings yesterday and pennyhal2's post.

Today I finally got my new Brother V5 up and running and embroidered 2 tea towels. It was very exciting sitting in front of a new machine. Took a while to get the hang of it for the first sew and oh it is so quiet and I love the self threading. Think my Galaxie self threads but doesnt work too well. So for those who are in a rut at the moment it has helped no end today embroidering and I will sew again tomorrow.

Thanks to all who replied and flowers were handed out too. I am now working on my first Sweet Pea design the snowman table runner.

Good for you! I actually went upstairs and looked at my fabric...and there it was!

A new machine is a great starter! The only machine that I've found that has a needle threader that actually works every time is the Babylock Destiny. My eyesight isn't as good as it used to be.

So glad to hear you have broken through your mood. I felt the same way and as you said doing something creative helps move past the funk and feel much better. Hugs. Nan
