I've been ruined!

Ruined from being able to sew on any other sewing machine that is! My new Janome Horizon that I won in the Sew Hip Fashion Designer competition has finally arrived at my house and oh boy it is good!

Hairy could not understand why I didn't jump on it straight away, but I had to tidy my sewing room first. I wanted to be in a clean, organised space so I could really enjoy it. Hairy decided that he had to test it out if I wasn't going to!

He was amazed, he played around with some of the pre programmed stitches - helicopters, trucks, cars and flowers!
My stash arrived at the same time so it took me a couple of days to get everything straight. Yesterday I finally sat down for some proper sewing time. Well I can safely say that when I get back to England in 2 weeks for my hol, sewing on my old Janome is going to be a bit disappointing. It doesn't have a knee lever to lift the preset foot! it doesn't have an automatic thread cutter! and it doesn't sew as smoothly! So far I love this machine. I even got up at 7 am this morning to go sew (normally I lay in bed until 8 since being preggers, if the boys allow me to!)
And to finish off with a couple of fabric pics, here's some of my stash looking organised

And a fabric pull for a project I'm planning

Ooh great to hear you are loving it. I've been eyeing off these babies since they first made it to market, better get the savings going again! Enjoy sewing those gorgeous fabrics. xo

I am so happy it has arrived, I had wondered if they had held up that end of the deal as you had not mentioned it.
Happy sewing xxx

I just got a new janome too - I think it's ruined me for sewing on lesser machines too!

Oh boy that's been some wait! But I remember reading alllll about that machine and drooling so I'm sure it's worth it... Happy sewing!!!
