Santa's made a brief appearance here in Rural France :)
He came and took my secret santa gift and it's happily on it's way to recipient.
He also left me with a pressie from DH, it's Swiss and not chocolate, the sweet love has been researching and scheming.
He knows the Janome has been playing up big time and kept telling me to go and buy a machine, problem is any of the other machine's don't do anything different to the Janome really and the one up from my machine is thousands of £££££'s.
So Phil took it upon himself to buy me a new to me machine anyway...
She sews like a dream, I've given her a good oiling, she has her extension table, she has 20 embroidery stitches and drops her feed dogs, speed control and shouldn't ever rust :) I can't quite believe that my machine which is 47 years old !!! yes 10 years older than me, can sew better than my Janome and the Brother.
I even managed a FM Amelia which I can't do on the other two.
I have been a bit naughty and ordered a 1/4" foot and another one with the guide like the Janome foot, I love the guide one cos it makes it so easy to chain piece accurate 1/4".
So on Boxing day I may be holed up with Berni :)
