My Joy is here...Arrived...OMG

She is here!!!  I can tell that she is wonderful by the way she looks at me already:)  This  Janome 8900 machine is huge...almost industrial and you should see the foot pedal.  Nose was pressed to the window all day for the big brown and yellow truck.  At 5 pm...up it came.  I was so very happy to see my UPS man that I gave him a potholder:) 
 But, then I had to leave for Guild.  Himself opened it up on the dining room water aerobics or errands for me tomorrow...I will be oh, so  busy!!!
Locally, I buy all my Janome things from Peggy at AAA sewing.  She could not match Quiltcon prices for this machine, or I would have bought it there(:    Still AAA is the best place to get all Janome things locally and to have any machine serviced.  Lucky me got Quiltcon price without having to go to Quiltcon:)

 Sitting at  Guild tonight, I made all of these.hexies..thx to Drenna for threading my needles and Courtney for inspiration!
Lately, I am enamored with Craftsy.   Craftsy English Paper Piecing is on its free block of the month page.  It is very well done.  This block is the block of the month for Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild.

The awards for the Charlotte Quilt Show next weekend were given out tonight.  My "Grandma and Me" won an honorable mention...My grandmother would have been proud!!!

Do not forget to see the wonderful Charlotte Quilters's Guild show this upcoming weekend.  Click on the blue for the details.  So there Julie!!!!!

She is lovely! Can't wait to see what you make tomorrow. Congratulations on the quilt honors, too! Very cool. I took my machines to AAA for their tune ups in December- they were very nice and very fast!

Have fun with your machine......if that slow start foot pedal annoys you (it sure did me) it can be easily changed.

Love the snowball quilt too!
