Our Newest Arrival!
With the help of my friend, Carla, I was able to locate a Janome 10000 from Craig's List! A very sweet older lady was finally upgrading to her dream machine, a Berina, and was selling her "baby" to me. She included everything she had bought for the machine over the past 8 years! I drove down to Maryland and met up with Carla. We fabric shopped in a Super Joann's and went to a neat quilt shop called Bear's Paw. We met with the lady to get the machine then enjoyed a fabulous lunch at the Cheesecake Factory! What delicious food and we even shared a decident rasberry chocolate cheesecake with whipped cream....ohhhhh....my.....we rolled out of there to walk the mall a bit. It was getting late so I had to head home soon after. But what an excellent day and trip...it was fun to get away. Meanwhile back at home, Edmund and the girls played and we got a new garage door and opener! Yaaa! I was so excited to get home and show everyone my newest baby....I even named her....Katie!
Here she is:
I know, I know...she looks just like the other one I had but this time I get to keep her forever!!!!
I also received two boxes full of goodies and accessories! She gave me all kinds of extra feet and extra usb cables and books and cd's of embroidery designs!
She also included several binders with lessons and tutorials which will be great to help me learn how to embroider!
She gave me 4 hoops...even a round one! The giga one has never been used!
Here is a thread set I bought just as the other machine was being returned....its been sitting here waiting to be used! There are 60 colors of shiny embroidery thread! Can't wait to try it!
Oh and she also threw in the "Amazing Box" which translates embroidery languages to other languages/formats... I have no idea how it works..something about putting cards in slots...good thing for great directions! She only used it once. So that is everything! I am so esited!!!!!
So today I got up and just had to get started using Katie. She started right up and sewed like a dream!!! I finished Sarah's tunic! Here I am getting ready to sew for the first time!
All finished! Sarah picked Jennifer Paganelli's "Casey Scroll" from the Bellbottom line in black/white! Isn't she so pretty!
So we decided to go to the zoo and park today since it was so nice out. We wore our tunics...the neighbor took our picture in our matchy tunics....lol!
So off to have fun we went! I ran into a friend who may order two tunics which is so cool! Sarah was like a walking advertisement! I may have to set up a webpage or something!
