Brand Spankin New

Yep, I went and done did it....I got a new sewing machine. One that is very specific. One that I need to practice on....a lot. LOL

I got everyone to chip-in for my birthday, plus a week's worth of temping, and then I had enough to get.......drumroll please.........

A Janome Coverpro 1000 cpx

It came prethreaded. How awesome is that?

The other stuff in the box. FYI...that needle threader gadget.....awesome

There she is

 Free arm...

first stitch right outta the box

Decided to test drive her on an apron

shoulder seam under 


Not too bad around the curve even though the foot is solid metal with zero visibility. Turned once then cover stitched. I usually turn twice and topstitch. Less steam burns this way. lol

On a goofy virtual 5k mania continues with the Weasley's Wizarding Wheezer 5k
Yes, I put on my robe and took the pic. 

joined Moonjoggers...bling just arrived
You can join for free, bling is not so free but entirely necessary optional.

Next up is the "May the Fourth Be With You" 5k and a real live like a diva, May 31st

And, of course, a gratuitous granddot shot...

 My tiny dancer....ahhhhhhh

Those are the highlights from my week.
What are your highlights?
