serendipity


Last night the stars aligned and I was able to make this little guy from start to finish with no huge hassles. I am borrowing a friend's sewing machine and was a little nervous about using it for the first time. I pulled it out of the box (it's brand a spankin' new Janome) with sweaty palms and nervous anxiety--much like a first date. I read the manual cover to cover, started sewing slowly and fell completely and utterly in love. It sewed like buttah. We were like peaches and cream, frosting and sprinkles, chocolate and peanut butter...well, you get the idea. My apologies to my $99 Brother machine that is now in the closet. Get used to it.

More critters to come..

I went from a walmart cheepo sewing machine to a Janome a couple years ago - it made sewing fun instead of frustrating!

Haha, yeah, it's a totally different thing to try out a new machine. The softie is so cute too, well done!

Aaaaahhhhhh, yes! I remember the day I turned in my $99 Brother Costco special for a Janome Memory Craft 4800QC..... sigh...

Even my little Jem Platinum brings tears to my eyes when I think back to the old (actually, it was only a year old when I dumped it) clunker.

Now go get yourself a good machine!
