Now the next part of my happy week had me jumping for joy. My new sewing machine was available for me to pick up. A quick background on it; I've been looking to change my machine for a couple of years, and keep going back and forth as to which model. So I spoke to a few people that do projects that I have planned, and one suggested I look at the Juki. I'd never heard of this brand before and was sort of leaning towards Janome. Well, I was blown away by it (and by the local shop that sold it to me). Its a brand that is used more on the industrial side, but are now branching out to home sewers. Its got lots of buttons and gadgets that come as standard, so now I just need to read the book and practice, practice and practice some more.
Also this week, my cocoa daisy kit came; I downloaded my first proper book to my kindle (yes, I've had my kindle years, but never really got on with it lol). The bears got mail, in the shape of new collars and leads and I went with my friend and neighbour Moira, for a coffee and cake. So all in all you can see, I had a fabulous week.
