Too much excitement?

I am awaiting delivery of the new Janome embellishing machine. I am really looking forward to trying it and comparing it with the BabyLock. I have a feeling that there will be things that can be done with one machine that are difficult on the other. I have been trying the felting attachment with the Bernina. It certainly is different from the BabyLock.

All I need is time. I've started the 2nd book, and am working on projects for it. Practice the techniques in the first book - you will need the skills for the second!

Ooh, yes! They've promised me an 11000 too. Just want to get going, so maybe tomorrow.......

Embellishers at Missenden

It's a week ago now, but this is a quick shot of some of the students working on their machines during the last weekend course at Missenden Abbey. It was a good weekend and a lot was achieved.

More weekends to follow, and a summer school next August.

Postcard Swap

It was so exciting to arrive home from holiday and find the above postcard in the post. It was sent to me by Jenny, and is the first in our Embellisher Postcard Swap.

We intend to have some fun.
