One Happy Woman!

Let me just say that I LOVE my new machine. Who knew that sewing could be better than it already was....ME! Here is a look at a tabletopper that has been waiting patiently for me to finish. I decided to quilt around each square for an easygoing look. It's also reversable, which to me is "killing two birds with one stone," so to speak...
So far my favorite feature on this machine is the fact that I can wind a new bobbin without unthreading my machine. WOOHOO! I know that may sound dumb to most of you, but it is a new luxury for me. Be back soon with the second tabletopper I made from the same charm pack of Cotton Blossoms... isn't life great?!

My New Toy!!

I have been paying on my new Janome sewing machine since May and I finally went to Vegas and picked it up yesterday. The ladies gave me a free lesson on what it does and let me practice some fun stuff too. This has been a long time coming, as my other machine is older than half of my kids! I promise to post more often, now that I can get some projects done that have been patiently waiting for this nice, new tool...
