Just as I started to catch up on lost sewing time my 43-year old Elna Supermatic sewing machine died. Mum very generously lent me hers for a few days but it didn't like me very much.
This morning my brand-new-to-me Janome arrived by courier - SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! It is a gift from a VERY special friend who has recently upgraded her own machine so this one was now surplus to her and was needing a loving home. I can't tell you who she is but I think some of my closest friends will guess who my fairy godmother is - actually she's more of an angel than a fairy and I cannot thank her enough for her loving generosity!
I've decided to name the Janome "Madge". 😃
I haven't had a chance to play with Madge yet as I need to earn my Janome degree & I admit I am feeling rather nervous as she's so modern & computerised! But I am also very excited & am looking forward to learning how to use her. She has a automatic thread cutter!!! SQUEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! And a needle down button! (Hey, my Elna is 43-years old, these luxuries were not invented back then!).
I have so many blog posts to catch up on but first I need to catch up on my sewing as I have a number of deadlines approaching fast.
I also wanted to say thank you to everyone for your well wishes following my accident! I received so many sweet messages via Instagram that I couldn't keep up with them all. I feel so very blessed to have so many wonderful friends - I'm tearing up as I type this - ok, I'll end here as I'm getting quite emotional. It's been a HUGE day for me but I wanted to say THANK YOU & a very special HUMUNGOUS THANK YOU to my beautiful Fairy Godmother - you know who you are & I am forever indebted to you ❤️
