  1. Very busy 2016, you go girl.
    ๐Ÿ˜ on Juki. How long did you sew on the janome gem gold toy? It will take practice for the new cadillac buttons to get used to. Have fun!

    • Lol! Great comparison. Sewed on my Janome for 2 years! But she’s stored near by so I can use the zig zag stitch when needed ๐Ÿ™‚ I get giggly every time I use that automatic thread cutter!! So far the tension and sewing is a dream! I’m sewing diagonally to create a long strip for a border.
