I Love You Janome Sewing Machine & Table!



That's it. I'm leaving my husband for my sewing machine and extension table. I love you Janome 6260QC and extension table. I LOVE YOU! LOL!

D. knows that I'm joking, but even he sat down at it (and pushed the foot pedal for a moment before jumping up and running) and admitted that my spankin' brand new Janome extension table is as "ooooooo" and "ahhhhh" as I couldn't stop saying. I can thank Mrs. Mel for that as I saw hers in a photo on her blog and it sparked an accessory envy that was so bad that I had to have one for myself. I twitched all through a Janome factory backorder, but it came. My supercool table finally came. Ooooo y'all. All sorts of creative ideas are floating through my mind to put it through its paces.

What also came was some very cool Nelson Mandela fabric that I ordered from Kyra Hicks, the author of Black Threads: An African American Quilting Sourcebook. It's a heavy cotton canvas from South Africa. It's pretty eyecatching, huh?

Girl, the fabric is jumping! and congrats on the machine! Long long long time ago, I did some roung robins and email exchanges with Kyra when I very first starting quilting about 17 years ago when Prodigy was the hot online carrier, ooo, saying that makes me feel old, hehehe, make sure you check my blog Thursday night or Friday okay?

That really extends your sewing space!

The fabric is great! I love the V-ness of it.

There's a vendor who comes to PIQF every year who goes to Africa just before (in fact two years ago, she arrived home the night before the show and was dead tired for the first couple of days!) and buys wonderful fabrics to sell at the show. She has a huge booth every year. I've bought tons of fabric, a fabulous bag, and last year, a wonderful rice paper piece of art that I need to frame.

Congrats on your new machine! Thanks for visiting my blog. If you ever travel through Indiana you should definitely plan a stop in Shipshewana, though it would probably be a bit of a culture shock after being in DC.

No, not at all. I spend a lot of time in a small town in rural Virginia. Totally different, laid back feel to life. I like that.

I am in awe of the Nelson Fabric! Lucky, lucky you! I have some dutvh wax resist African print fabrics that I am so awed by, I am unable to cut into them. That is so unlike me!!!

My mom gave me a Janome for Christmas/Birthday last year and the first night I sat down to sew on it I started moaning, you know, like When-Harry-Met-Sally moaning. From the next room I could hear my husband say: "What are you doing?" And I said: I have a new man and his name is Janome!
Ha, don't they rock? Enjoy that motor Elle!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
