Yes, I have just turned 40!
I really haven't thought much about my birthday, as we have had a few significant events happen in our family in a very short period of time. All of them, wonderful. I had a great day, & finished it by having dinner out with my family. One of my daughters gave me a book about learning to crochet, which I'm thrilled with as I've long wanted to be able to crochet.
I have been thinking for a few months now of getting a new sewing machine, & only a couple of weeks ago settled on the one I want. I had started putting money aside for it, thinking I would buy it towards the end of the year. BUT, I received some lovely gifts for my birthday that will enable me to go buy it THIS WEEK!!
Check this out & tell me what you think
I have had my trusty base-model Janome since 1994, my overlocker since 1996 & have just come into my MIL's 1960s machine & cabinet. But I need more working space for the sewing projects I want to tackle. So my stable of machines will grow to 4 soon...
I am very excited to become the owner of a machine that will enable me to expand my interests, try new techniques & really just indulge in my love for sewing. Gosh, it will feel like learning to drive all over again!
