Yeah, Sew....

I am scared. Very very scared... sort of in a I'm about to get my belly button pierced, so I'm feeling like I have to go to the bathroom every 5 seconds kind of way.
Behold the monster...

I'm not letting the swirly flower pattern fool me... I know it wants to chew off my fingers.
We have love hate relations.
In one way, I know we can be besties... like me and my Temperpedic mattress, which I love in scary ways. But in between dreaming of all the curtain panels and doggie scarves I can make, I start to have nightmares of sewing over my fingers, ruining really cute fabric that I spent a fortune on, resulting in crying sessions on the floor of my craft room (remember that scene from Julie and Julia where Julie ends up on her kitchen floor... yeah kind of like that).
So in order to prevent the above from happening, I am taking the machine by the bobbin, which I'm not even sure what it is, but heard the term used in the Joann Fabrics sewing section while I was making my purchase, so I'm pretty sure there's one of those on this machine. And I'm starting my sewing lessons soon.
Here's the light at the end of the tunnel.

Dreamy, right?

Lola told me she wanted me to make her a dog bed cover with this print, as if I needed MORE pressure?!
 Please send me positive thoughts as I conquer the monster.
