Happy birthday to (Jano)ME!8:29:00 PM
If you happen to follow my Instagram feed, you may have seen some sneak peeks of my new baby:
I upgraded my Singer 9960 to a Janome MC6500P, and so far, I'm thrilled. It just arrived last week so I've been busy trying to learn the ropes with my new machine. It took me a long time to save for it, and made a lot of midwifery infant scale slings to help the cause, and I'm so proud of it!
So of course I may have added a few things here and there to my Amazon wishlist whilst daydreaming about my new machine, and hubby just may have used the list as a reference when doing his shopping for my birthday (YAY ME!!). Look at this haul!!:
|Janome Muffling Mat, Janome Pink Blossoms Bobbins, 25ct, Janome Blue Bobbins, 25ct, Janome Clear View Quilting Foot and Guide Set, Clover Mini Iron II|
Woot! Super excited to use the 1/4" clear view foot with the skookum guide. And the colored bobbins! Eep! Blue bobbins for embroidery, pink bobbins for cottons, me thinks. I love the little case, too. Super convenient. And I've tried the Janome Muffling Mat already and I like it. Really cool. Reduces the vibration and the backside is rubberized so it helps your machine to stay put on your table. My old machine used to bounce like crazy at high speeds.
I have yet to try out the Clover Mini Iron II yet, but it's been on my list for ages. Massdrop recently had one on a drop but the price wasn't great, and I didn't really need it. But that's what your birthday is for, I guess? heheh. Love. My. Hubby!
I am one lucky girl this birthday. I'm halfway to 70 people. Look out!
On another note, I will eventually be writing about my experience with respect to purchasing a new machine, my decision to go with the Janome MC6500P, and a candid review of the machine therein (since I bought and paid for the machine on my own dime, the machine was not a sponsored item/purchase).
Coming soon, stay tuned!
