I am celebrating today because I sewed my first card all on my own with my new JANOME!!!!!!!!
A little while back I was doing my daily peruse when I noticed Gina K was offering some blog candy. Yup, you guessed it, a sewing machine! Gina K had featured the "how to's" of sewing over the course of a few days and awarded one lucky reader a Janome. I could hardly believe it when I saw my name posted on her blog. I was literally jumping up and down. I have wanted a Janome forever but you can't buy them in Canada (although I received an e-mail from someone recently who says they may be available soon).
I have won a few things in my life...one of them being a 30lb chocolate bar when I was 14 (I gave it ALL away),a backyard firepit (*lol* I won that from our local grocery store this past summer...it's still in the box!) and now this beautiful Janome sewing machine. This is the first time I have won something really useful (ok...so the BBQ pit is something useful...but it suits DH more than me *lol*). I am FOREVER grateful to Gina...she has changed the course of my card creations...just you wait.
Do you see who is teaching me in the background there?? Thanks Gina!!!!
Since I am still rusty at this you will have to forgive my crooked lines. I think after a few whirls with the sewing machine I will get the hang of it. I am just thankful I could thread the thing let alone sew on a card. One thing I have learned after being a blogger and a blog hopper is that we all grow with time...hopefully you will see that translate into good sewing down the road *lol*
See...I am still learning *wink*
