My new machine arrived today. I wasn't expecting it until tomorrow at the very earliest so it was a nice surprise. It is a Janome with a few basic decorative stitches and the other functions I wanted like needle up/down, bobbin declutch so I can wind without having to stop sewing. Not a fancy machine but what I wanted. Some might question whether I made a wise decision as I sold a machine with far more functions and another that is sturdier although not computerized. I guess it comes down to what you want. And this one is it. There isn't a steep learning curve so I can start sewing right away.
Our temperature is starting to drop and stay down. I finally finished planting my new tulips and I better get the leaves around the plants that need protecting. We aren't expecting below freezing temps yet but they will arrive.
Other than my article for the Quilt Pattern Magazine (which doesn't have to be submitted until early next week) I have caught up with everything on my schedule. Yesterday I was feeling overwhelmed and today I'm done. Of course, I did keep plugging away and that makes the difference. If you fuss without doing, you will always be in the same place.
