Sewing Pretty

My new little backup sewing machine arrived on Friday. I decided to get the Janome Hello Kitty machine, and so far it's working great. It's a very basic machine, and I can't use my quarter inch foot from my other Janome on it, but I think I'll be able to figure out a solution to that.

I also wanted to share a little sneak peek of what I've been working on. I'm probably not going to share the whole thing until it's been given to its owner.

In moving news, we are working on getting adjusted to our new place and climate. My little girl keeps asking if various friends from back in Kansas are moving, too. It is a little sad to have to keep telling her that no, they are not moving too. We are working on adjusting everyone's wardrobes to fit the wet and cool climate--I am still looking for a rain jacket for myself; it needs to be cute. We are looking for a home to rent for a year and hoping our Kansas house will sell soon. I don't have a great internet connection or as much time to sew...I can't wait until I can sew more and share about it here on the old blogge. :)

Read somewhere that putting moleskin 1/4 inch away helps. I sewed several quilts without one and just used a place on my regularcfoot but couldn't get over how much faster I can sew with it! Good luck with the coat search. Definitely a needed item

Hope your little girl and all of you adjust quickly. Moving is hard!

It's cute! First I thought it was a checkered machine, then I realized you did something with your photos! =)

It is a super sweet machine. Can you change the needle position?

I am happy that you were able to find a hello kitty sewing machine! I am glad you are getting to sew even though you are busy trying to find a wonderful place to live.

Such a cute machine, Vicki! And the fun photo treatment just makes it look a little more retro and cool! The fabrics in your project are gorgeous!

Jan said...

We miss you!! I am glad you can get online and blog now and then, and the sewing machine is adorable! Hugs to the family! Even the old guy ...

I am not even kidding... just today I was telling my mom that I should get a Hello Kitty machine. I love my 'big' Janome and would love to have something small and portable for sewing days and if a friend comes over to sew. You'll have to give me the scoop on the quarter inch food solution!

Glad to hear you are getting settled. I think you should come to the meeting next week, just to let us visit with you and see you in person again. Ok? Ok. :)

p.s. I think I fixed the no reply blogger issue. Can I get out of timeout now? :)
