Talk about perfect timing?
My brand new Janome Horizon MC 8900 sewing machine finally arrived after her 6000km journey from Brisbane to Port Hedland… and I can’t tell you how excited I am to have some fun with her.
My new baby will be putting the icing on my Tiramisu which is the first Cake Sewing Pattern and the wonderful StephC is hosting a fabulous Tiramisu Sew-along.
Here’s my new little baby… straight out of the box.
And here’s the first project she’ll be adding some icing to is my sweet Tiramisu
I just love this fabric and I think it’s going to look great as a Tiramisu… what do you think?
Over 70 people or social sewists as StephC call us (love that term) have signed up for the Tiramisu 30 Minustes a Day Sewalong on SewingCake.com and I’m proud to say I’m one of them.
If you’d like to join in it’s not too late… there’s even a Flickr photostream page which is super lively and has a great community spirit… oh and StephC has been answering lots of questions and is really supportive of everyone in the group.
I have two other projects on the go… nothing like mixing it up and having a little fun!
There is my Sewing Dare.
My Sewing Dare was to make a pencil skirt using a woven fabric.
I’ve decided to use a gorgeous red silk dupioni and a rayon print for the lining which were both in my stash and I thought would be perfect to make up a classy straight skirt for myself. … I love the print fabric and even better it feels great on my skin. My Janome 8900 is going to love sewing this fabric and I know it will sew it beautifully too!
But wait there’s more…
I’ve chosen to use this print woven fabric and white lining.
I’m really looking forward to making this skirt as well and I love the colours and the print in this fabric… it’s so summery and feels great… I think it’s perfect for light weight summer skirt.
So as you can see I’ve got a few projects on the go and they’ll definitely be a great way to test out my new Janome 8900 … so when I’m not at work I’ll be in my sewing room having a some fun!
