November OPAM 2013

I can only show a small portion of these finished projects as they are Christmas presents for close members of my family.
This month I have made two Christmas presents, two pair of large curtains, one birthday present and a table topper.

Welcome Holly

After a few sleepless nights , Henrietta has finally gone home to Sew Creative in Cambridge this morning.
This is Holly.  My new Janome Horizon 8900 QCP.  She arrived this afternoon.  Why call her Holly?  The reason is she is my Christmas present for this year and next as well as next year's birthday present.  
Thanks to all at Sew Creative and to Mr D. I am off to play with my new machine.

Goodbye Henrietta!

Henrietta can home with me from the quilt show last month.  Well she is going back to Cambridge as she does not like living in Devon.  I had finally found time over the last weekend to get to play with Henrietta and she does not like living Devon.  So I phoned Janome this morning about my problems with the machine and they advised  me to take the machine back to the dealer.
Sew Creative have arranged for the machine to be collect from my house on Thursday and a brand new one to arrive straight from Janome to be delivered on the same day.  I would like to thank all the staff at Sew Creative for their help and support.
Now I will box up Henrietta and get poor old Jan out of retirement. I will update you all on Thursday.

November OPAM 2013

Just a quick post to update my finishes for this month's OPAM.  I made and quilted this table topper some time ago.  I just needed to sew on the binding.  
I love making table toppers as much as I love making bags.  I might keep this one as a Christmas present.  
Now I must get back to work on my new workshop project samples and writing up the notes for each class.
