Merry Christmas to Me!

I know Christmas is over, but I forgot to show what I got!!!

What could be under here?
Drum roll....

It's the Janome 5812!  I've used the same sewing machine that my parents bought me in high school- a sturdy little Bernette, that was already used when I got it.  But, this year for Christmas, Mom and Dad surprised me with a new Janome.  It's lighter than the Bernette, but all my presser feet are interchangeable which I was excited about, and it should top stitch much nicer than my old machine.  I'm still keeping my old machine because I'm sentimental and I figured it would be handy if I am ever without a machine for a while.  (I have to drive an hour to get my machine tuned up and then wait a few days and drive an hour to pick it up.)

It's so nice having a new machine!  It's not computerized but it does everything my old machine did and then some, so I'm pretty happy.


  1. What a nice surprise. I'd really like to acquire and learn to use a sewing machine this year, but first we have make a space in my house for a machine (and all its accroutements to live).

    I'm sure you'll be enjoying this baby this year.

  2. The blog with the best stuff is provoking the people to give the good remarks.
