Clueless buys a sewing machine

What an exciting day for me! Up until now I have been completely clueless about sewing machines. But I went out and bought one today! Well, I'm still clueless, but I was able to thread the bobbin, the needle, and make the damn thing work!!! Yay!! The model I bought was a Brother CE-4000 because it seemed non-threatening enough, and was within my budget. It's got 40 built-in stitches, and can sew through multiple layers of heavy fabric, which I hope means I can use it as part of some mixed media pieces. Anyway, just so I can remember this extremely momentous occasion (right!) here is my first practice stitch.
