A block, a top and sewing on my new Janome 2030QDC!

I have so many topics to write about and so many blog posts rolling around in my head, and yet I seem unable to actually sit down and organize myself enough to put them onto paper (so to speak).

So today I will have to be satisfied with showing you three things:

I re-joined We Bee Canadian, and made my January blocks this morning:


I finally bought the fabric and sewed the borders onto my triangle-square sampler quilt. This is the first finished top in 2014! It is already sandwiched and ready for the quilting frame. 🙂

005AND… Just what did I do all this sewing on, you might ask?

004Why, my brand new Janome 2030QDC! Whoot whoot!

016This is my retirement present to myself. 🙂 I LOVE it!

Sewing room pics coming soon. Retirement update coming soon. I promise!
