Hello friends! I wanted to share my latest procrastination with you. Bear with me, I am about to get all linky...
Last week I visited this popular blog, where I found a link to this lovely blog, where there was this most lovely project!! Did you see it too?
I was quite motivated to love up my own machine.
My janome is less than a year old - and much more modern than I am used to.
My mum gave me my first sewing machine for my 18th birthday. It was second hand and at least 20 years old and I loved it more than anything! I had been happily sewing with it for nearly 10 years until one day it decided to give up. I had her serviced and hoped she would survive - but alas is was not to be. I was devastated to give her up.
My new machine is smooth and shiny, with pink and silver details that urked me.
She was the pink ribbon janome with part proceeds from the sales being given to breast cancer research.
She has more stitch functions than I will ever need, and I am still learning how to cope with a computerised machine.. .Every now and again she will just start sewing by herself which always scares the shit out of me...
ANY WAY -
here is my machine with a little prettying up...
Please excuse the funny night time photos...
She has seen a little dymo action and a little vintage fabric tape action.
The beautiful tape was made for me by miss Allana over at high maintenance hippy .
Its not finished yet - I need more tape!!
Off to bed!
