Friday I'm in Love - with my new sewing machine!

Seriously - I cannot believe I got through a whole year of making sock toys with my old machine. I was very grateful for that machine, it was a hand-me-down from my mum, via my sister but it just did not sew well when it came to socks. There were times when it nearly went out the window!!!

But I digress, my new machine is sublime. It sews so well through socks, it's effortless and so quiet too. I'm so (sew!!) excited to get back into creating again, I'm even planning to make a patchwork quilt for Robyn with this fabric:

So thank you my dear Janome 5018 Decor - I think I *love* you!!!

Oooh a new toy, look fab Tracy.

I would love to get a sewing machine and have a go at quilting but I think I should stick to one hobby for now!!

Looking forward to seeing more of your creations. :)

Hi there. Are there any sites that offer sewing patterns for runway modern fashion? Are there websites where I can find modern sewing patterns for men's clothing?

Indeed, your machine looks beautiful. I also love mines. I owe a hand held sewing machine that I bought online last year and it is still working great. I am quite happy with it.
