My new baby

Two weeks ago I ordered a new sewing machine.

My old one was becoming cranky, misbehaving and really giving me a run-in with my patience.  It would start a row of stitches and after 15 centimetres would make a strange noise.  Stop, look at the stitching and the back as well.  Ten centimetres of loops !!  Check how I threaded the machine, and start again.  Same thing.  Not only is it making loops on the back but the 1/4 inch foot is  making seams much bigger.  I have had to pull undone almost an entire quilt top..  Inanimate objects---Bah.

I bought a Janome 7700.  I want to take it to my sewing room, but the phone keeps ringing as soon as I walk  away from it. In the meantime I can study the  Instruction book

I have three table runners ready to quilt and 2 to make and quilt. After that I have a queen size  top to buy  border fabric and batting for and have it quilted.
1 top half finished
1 top cut out ready to sew together.
Several more patterns picked out to do when I catch up
