My creative space


…won’t be seeing much in the way of creativity today. There is more mess in my house than house, so I should probably do something about that instead. But I did want to show you my (other) new baby. I finally kicked my old Janome to the kerb a couple of weeks ago and bought something with bells and whistles. I confess, I really wanted a Bernina, but for the same bells and whistles, I would have had to pay twice the price, so this is my compromise, and I do really like it… so far. I’ve had not a lot of sewing time on it yet, obviously. But what could that be in the artfully blurred background? Could it be my (finished) blocks for the Oh Fransson! Quiltalong? Why yes, yes it could. Now I need to buy sashing, batting, backing & binding fabrics, learn to quilt on this new machine o’ mine, and I might actually turn out a quilt sometime soon! (Or not soon. You know. Either is good).

Now… about that mess… :yuk:

  1. Congratulations on the new machine! I love the fabric in the background. Can’t wait to see it put together.

  2. Also loving the teaser squares Mel.

  3. You’ll get there…..slow and steady…

  4. A new sewing machine – how exciting! And one that finishes quilt blocks is even more clever – by itself?! Good luck for the rest of it – I look forward to checking back in and seeing how you get on!

  5. I love that your machine has that pop of colour on it.

    Happy quilting in all your spare time!

  6. New toy! I have an old old Brother so I’ll keep a keen eye on your new fella. Because one day I’d like to sew something more than a straight-ish line…

  7. I have a brother, though not quite as fancy looking, but it goes really well, not problems at all so far. Have a great time (when you get the chance)

  8. Ahh! I’m so jealous. I’m still not getting my new baby for at least 3 weeks. They’re twins by the way. I’ll be watching closely to see how you like it 🙂

  9. What a lovely new baby! A whole new chapter of creativity. Looking forward to sewing the quilt blocks.

  10. Ooh, yummy new machine! Sorry to hear about Finn’s stitches 🙁 And your applique looks gorgeous!! Can you tell I’m very behind in my blog reading?? 😉
