Christmas Already?

Oh how Christmas comes upon us so quickly. Hubby asked what I wanted and 
and new sewing machine it is.  My old one just wasn't doing it anymore. I searched
online for reviews and local area.  Not many sold in our area except big box store.
I went to a local sewing quilting shop who carries the line I saw a great review on 
You Tube, Babylock Katherine seemed fabulous, until she told me the price, $1400.
I want a decent sewing machine not a used car.   Costco had a good reduced deal on 
this Janome 6100 and for the features it has it seemed like a good price.

I comes with the extended quilt table and finally a needle threader.  Getting older the eyes
appreciates this feature. I waited till this weekend to get making anything.  I have a few
quick presents I wanted to make and managed two Tea Bag Wallets.

I made some a few years ago, they are easy enough to make and great for 
tea drinkers.  The only thing I find with this machine is the plastic parts. The 
thread spool at the top, plastic by the handle. 

The other weekend I was going through my yarn stash and found 6 balls of these colors
of chunky yarn.  So I started a shrug like wrap. 

And still working on a few rows here and there on this feather and fan knitting.
Working for a living really gets in the way of my creative endeavours. Must continue
to play lottery.

I had to go to Michael's for a specific thread color and found these were on sale, 1/2 the price they usually are.  Now to find a good pattern for these delicious skeins.

And for my kitties.

If I don't post before Christmas have a wonderful holiday with your family!!!
