TA DA ......Its here !!!!!!!! yahooooo

Yipeeeee at last its here and I think I'll call her "Flossie" I had cleaned the sewing room but now look at it but its worth it thats for sure.
Lilyana has a beautiful shop at Mudgeerba   " Patchwork Dreaming " ... Janet does the Janome machines and they are 2 of the nicest and most helpful ladies.... so if you are ever in the area do pop in and say hello, I'm sure you will be welcomed with friendly smiles.

First the mess......


Soooo.... drum roll please......... here it is.....





The horn cabinet I have is too small for this machine as well so my little machine that I take to retreats and classes will be its home from now on.


Sadness though as my machine cover is toooo small, looks like I will have to add a cover to my "to do list" any excuse to sew now.


Its a sad day too, I had to put my old girl away, she has been a great machine over the past  27 years, I haven't got the heart to chuck her out so shes in the cupboard and will make a terrific spare if ever needed.



 
What a great day its been ..... so exciting ....... might have to have a sewing day tomorrow, first I have to work out how to use all the bits and pieces so I can get on with quilting my Friends in Stitching  quilt.

Congratulations on your new toy. You're the 3rd person I know who has one of these now. I hope you'll be as happy as they are. Don't forget to get the old girl out once in a while to give her a little run just to keep all her parts moving.
