Hope DH's not looking!

OMG!!! I've done it! Don't tell my DH! Hope he's not looking in....... I've succumbed to a snap decision in Dunelm Mill Shop this morning. OK I'll get to the point. I've bought a (basic) sewing machine. Finally. Yes, I know I've got my mum's old Singer upstairs but she says it doesn't work too well and I can't lift it off the floor. And this is a Janome and I can lift it.

Here it is boxed

And here it is in all its glory

I haven't used a sewing machine since the 80's and certainly not for creative stitching. It's only a basic machine but it has 20 stitches and drop feed dogs so it should do most things that I'll want to do. It only cost me £89 so I'm happy. I've managed to thread it up and had a little play so, watch this space, I may now be able to finish my fibre ATC's neatly and indulge in some free machining. Yee ha!

If DH is looking in MWAH! luv ya! Kiss, kiss, kiss! I don't really feel guilty! ;o)) (He won't mind really).

I think DH ought to keep you on a rein - you've done a lot of this impulse buying just lately :)
This machine will be ideal for your needs and I can't wait to see what you do with it. Have fun.

A girl after my own heart... don't you just love an impulse buy! You will get lots of use out of it, I have no doubt.

You're going to have so much fun with your new sewing machine. I can't imagine life without one. Mine is only a basic one but I must admit I dream of owning one of the all singing and dancing ones by Bernina or Janome one day....when my number come up on the lottery, if only!!!!!
