New 'Toy'


Other than having just finished a set of four postcards I'm being rather unproductive at the moment but I do have a new 'toy', as from yesterday a mini Janome sewing machine that weighs just 5lbs, a friend had bought one and brought it to show me, they are availible on E Bay from a firm that - would you believe - is on the small industrial estate close to where we live so off I went to get one, they are on sale in a well known department store for rather more than I paid. I know I don't NEED it but it will be good for sewing paper as I'm always ruining needles in my main machine and the other thing is it will be great in the caravan, so here it is unvieled................ just have to find a place for it in the craft room - perhaps knock a wall out???
The other thing of note this week is that my Canadian Cousin Sandi is visiting CHA this week and also taking lots of workshops there - even had the nerve to post a pic of herself and Tim Holtz on her blog!!! just hope she brings loads of goodies when she comes in April.

So this is something else that I don't need??????
Can solve the problem re the wall.... you move into the lounge and put poor Roy into the craft room....then you can spread out into the garden as well........

Wow! Brilliant idea Viv... I could do that TOO. I know Chris wouldn't mind... he suffers already for my art and a little more suffering wouldn't upset him too much.
LOVE THE NEW BABY MAUREEN... SHE'S BEAUTIFUL!! It's got me thinking (you wicked woman!!)

Oooh, looked at these last year, thought it would be rather better than my clunky old thing and quicker to set up ... rats, forgot to put it on my christmas list. Can I wait 11 months?

Your new toy looks great Maureen, and what a snazzy colour! You'll have no excuse for taking time off from crafting even on holiday now.

A girl can never have too many machines Maureen

Now that's really naughty. I DO NOT NEED one, if I took one into the caravan,Peter would just give up. His tolerance would take a nose dive.
