Well, my sewing machine is official done for. It is only now to be used as a light duty machine. Nothing I ever do is light duty. It had just been in the shop in February and now back again in July. They said no more of the same, I have ran it way too hard. So, I bought myself a new sewing machine. I think I have a bit of buyers remorse. I haven't bought a sewing machine for over (at least) 15 years and this new one is sitting in the shrink wrap still. I intend to unwrap it, I just usually don't spend that much on myself EVER! I know it is an investment that everyone will benefit from.
It is the first Janome that I have ever owned. I hope that it is a good machine! Well, since I was unable to get any sewing done this week. I still have my cupcake bike pouches that I am working on and I had to show you this fabric I picked up.
It is Sweetwater's line Mama Said Sew! for Moda.
I am a complete sucker for Black, Whites and Greys. Let's just say I LOVE them! I can't wait to get busy on some project with this line. It is soooo cute!
Since my sewing machine needle was not productive, my crochet needle was. I have finished a total of eight Ring around the Rosie potholders!
I have a total of twenty to complete. I thought that I would get a jump start on my Christmas presents. I am a procrastinator. (Most of the time) I have super good intentions of finishing a whole bunch of projects for presents and then I am up until 2 a.m. on Christmas Day. I am sooo trying not to do that this year.
I have three in the making that won't take too long to get finished up.
And for a ending note, a yellow day lily from my flower garden.
The lovely places I link to.......
