I've been adding some Easter decorations to the dining room.
Picking rhubarb to make lots of lovely compote.
Soaking up the glorious colours of blossom against blue sky, and just wishing the weather could stay like this all year...
Also, treating myself to a new sewing machine which arrived today. I've had my Pfaff for about 13 years now and felt the need for something more up to date. After lots of research and asking around, I went for the Janome 8200. It's got the dual feed system that's the best bit about the Pfaff, and a much bigger throat that will cope with larger quilts. It was too nice a day today to stay indoors, but I unpacked all the bits and had a quick play.
It's a big machine, but it does just fit in my cabinet. The extension table is on order and I'll probably use that, minus the legs rather than an insert.
You can see the size difference here.
Just need to sit down with the manual and work out how to use it now. It may take a while!
Hope you all have a lovely Easter
