New Sewing Machine and a little space ...
This is my new sewing machine! a Janome 6600 professional ... sews like a dream and has a bunch of options on it, really fancy! My son, William and D-I-L, Brandie like to sew, so they will be using it too!
Using the space that I thought was just going to be a place to read for my sewing room ... 54x45 (inches), pretty small but big enough to sew. Have a card table that belonged to my Grandma, it's really a cool one ... wood top with an insert for a sewing machine ... that I'll use when I have something that needs extra space that the sewing table can't handle. My new home is a lot smaller than the old one and just don't have any other places to set up ... but love it (my home and the space!).
Craft books ... picture didn't come out very well. Have a few more up in the attic that I have to go through, but really, these are enough to keep me busy for a long time!
This is the space! Small, huh?!? but nice, cozy and straightened up (at least for now, don't have any projects going on at the moment ... that's a little window at the top of the photo and a tree out of it ... not a picture! I can see trees out of every window of my home ... sort of like living in a treehouse!
This is a piece I did quite a few years ago ... it's stained glass grouted instead of soldered. Love this piece ... did it for my Dad (though he did call them weeds) ... he was a Kansan and the sunflowers are the Kansas state flower (they grow everywhere). It's the first time I've ever hung it. It looks pretty nice on the wall. Think of my Dad every time I look at it!
Still have some straightening up to do, but it's coming together and happy about it!
Have a great day on this the first day of February!
