Yesterday I travelled to the Malvern Autumn Quilt show with the girls.  I wanted to visit the show as the Exe Valley CQ group have been invited to exhibit some of their quilts. I am a member of this group.  We meet about four to six times a year in Exeter.  I try very hard never to miss a meeting as we have so much fun together.  One of the best things about this contemporary group is the friendship.      
Anyway back to the show. I have been saving to buy a new machine for some time.  I knew what make and model I would like to own. I have had my Memory Crafts 4800 QC for twelve years. I used her every day and to be frank I have warn her out.
As soon as we got through the door at the Malvern Autumn Quilt show I came across a Janome dealer with a great deal on the model I desired.  I phoned home to speak to my dear Mr D about the dealer's offer. 
As you can see Henrietta the Janome Horizon 8900 QCP jumped into the car so she could come home and live with me.    
Those of you that know me well, I am going to tell you that I was not the only one in the car that came home with a sewing machine!!!  I will say no more, just ask Sue for more details.......

Craft Fayre

Today I had a table at Just Tracys craft fayre.  This is the second fayre this year at Just Tracys that I have attended with all my hand crafted items.
This fist photo shows the difficult time I was having fitting all my wares onto one table.  Sorry I do not know why the photo has turned to a side view, this is the first time in all my years blogging that this has happen to me.       
And it has happen again! Never mind I am off to the Malvern Autumn Quilt show tomorrow with the girls. Do not forget the clocks change tonight.
