Getting Friendly!

It just had to happen - quite an investment my new Janome and I have twiddled and fiddled, bought an accufeed quarter inch foot and Bob's your Uncle! I have pieced the baby quilt and feeling quite happy with it - really! - all very simple, but nicely stitched is the main thing. I have used a charm pack as you can see - wonderful little story, and added some odd-bods to add a bit of interest!


On a stormy, showery day, there was gorgeous light and sunshine in 'My Studio' this afternoon!




Illness may be leaving the body and motivation returning - see my sidebar where I have 'pledged' to participate in a BOM - I really think I have enough in my stash to join in the fun and make a new quilt!

Yum and kinda Yum!

DS Number 2 is working offshore sailing in a vessel bringing a platform to a gas rig off Darwin - I love to walk out the front door and enjoy the beautiful roses he has nurtured, love you David!

Hello Miriam of Yellow Roses - love checking out with you!

The weekend is nearly over - hope your footy team won!

Your baby quilt looks wonderful! And your roses are just beautiful! I'm enjoying the last blooms on my yellow rose as autumn is here and it will be too cold for them to bloom before much longer.

Sweet finish! Beauyiful roses! Do you think that BOM will just be for machine piecers? I checked it out but it didn't say.

So you and your Janome have become better friends?
I really must spend some time with mine before

Happy sewing, now will you quilt the baby quilt on your Janome too?
