Inspiration Inspires!

What a day! First the Janome demo at the Sewing Basket, and what a demo it was? Who knew machines could do such a good job replicating the look of hand quilter? I must say I was most impressed and wish I wasn't so attached to my current machine....

I have had such fun getting ready for my own demo and have already amassed a little pile of treasures for tomorrow. Pincushions and sachets are such fun to make and I tried out the new rose maker from Clover. It was more than a tad frustrating on the first attempt but the second went better and I am eager now to give it another go. It seems kind of convoluted when you start but after one, it all makes sense! The sachets were fun too and it didn't take long before I was totally engrossed in them too. I dug into my ribbon treasures and found some leaves I made long ago - why, oh why, don't I do more ribbon work?
