My Old Love

Yep I have gone back to my old love today..... yes you heard me right..... today I spent most of the day with my darling Janome! I sewed and sewed and sewed and boy did Janome and I enjoy ourselves!!!

I took him in for a check up with the doctor in The Mount and now he is purring like a kitten. Together we made covers for the long lounge cushions and the chair I sit in. Then a new cover for the footstool. And then two new cushion covers in matching material. And..... then.... we went way overboard and made a very basic table runner for the dining table which is in the same room.

We are now resting and basking in the warm glow of a job well done.

And now for an appropriate quote:

Those who can laugh without cause have either found the true meaning of happiness or have gone stark raving mad. ~Norm Papernick

Well Kathryn - it certainly sounds like you have had the best day sewing. I can remember when I used to sit & sew most of the day too. Ohhh the good ol' days.
Where did you get him serviced at the Mount????? I'd like to get mine done too.
And YES - Emma did have another set of drawers!!! Santa here he comes????
As for your qyote - I luv it as I think I'm a little MAD!!!! ha ha
