cows = ???

Sold some old cows and they went better then I thought...........so with the extra money I went shopping...............
What do you think????? Did I spend my money well.............
Still have the old girl but she is making funny noises so I thought while I have the chance why not upgrade.............and upgrade I did in a big way..............lucky this Janome 6600 is on a good special at the moment...........think this is the start of a very good relationship..............maybe love/hate sometimes but generally very good.............
she has lots more features then my old girl.............OMG she goes fast too..............
I was so excited on Saturday I could hardly sew as I couldn't decide what to do first............so many ideas/projects running around in my head I played with the letters/alphabet instead...........
Catch you later

  2. I had to laugh about selling old cows better than expected... LOL!

    Congratulations and welcome to the happy Janome MC6600 bunch! I love the machine. If you are ever able to buy the Janome table that’s built to put the machine in, I can recommend it!

  3. You are so lucky! But with the extra money I received these month, this week I'll also get my bernina I ordered on Saturday. I can already sew the blocks of "A gardener's Journal" but I have so many projects I want to do before Christmas!
    See you;)
    Have a create week with your new machine;)
