New toy!

Janome in Australia is running a special on their CoverPro 1000CP (AU$499), and well, I just had to have one! I also bought the centre guide foot and a binder.

Here's the triple cover stitch straight out of the box. The machine had four spools of thread which I've just left on for testing.

Here's the binder attached to the machine
Here's what the binding looks like. The stitching isn't aligned as I'd like, but hey it was my first go! I was just checking if I could get it to work.

I love new toy. I wonder if I can convince my other half that I need the embroidery module for my sewing machine?

Oh, we finally picked up my cutting table last weekend!
The table is only open on one side. When I open it all up, there is lots of room. But I can also only use one side which is very handy when I am working on small projects. The table has also given me a bit of extra storage, so I've filled that space up with fabric, of course!

Yes, that is the Farmers Market Feliz in the background. It's waiting to go to its new home. Once it's on its way, I will post proper pictures of it. I'm having a hard time parting with this dress.
