I'm grateful for {the new addition}

Everyone - I would like to introduce you to our latest addition to the family!  Welcome to my Janome!  Janome this is blogland!  Now that you are formally introduced - your first little expedition here in blogworld is to star in post along with Maxabella Loves and all the other grateful bloggers out there.

Today I'm grateful for...

1. New additions - This little beauty up there is my new sewing machine!  She's been with me for a few weeks now, and we are very well acquainted.  I love her to bits already and she is a really good companion and a great listener.  It's a Janome DC2101 and some of the features I love include the vast array of stitches, computerised component, auto needle threader and foot speed control.  It's been a dream to sew with!  Old Elle (aka - The Elna) is now in semi retirement and will take a much needed break.  She will be great to use to teach the kids how to sew.   So now I have a young and fresh machine sitting alongside my other Janome (my overlocker) and they look very happy indeed.

2. my man - he made the suggestion of buying a new machine!

3.  Dora - the lovely sales assistant at the sewing centre who spent her time and effort in helping me choose the perfect machine for me!

Happy grateful day xx
