My Nerve Center
Susan asked what we sew on; so here's a picture of my new "baby". My DH bought this new machine for me in April and it's a Janome Memory Craft 6600. When Janome introduced their 6500 a few years ago I really wanted one but thought it would be silly to buy a new machine. Then they introduced this one and I really was coveting it. I kept teasing my DH that I was going to buy it and he'd just say "go for it". Well, in April I attended the Chicago Quilt Festival and had an opportunity to really play with it and I came home really excited about it. A week later I was the proud owner. :-) I can't tell you how much I enjoy sewing on this machine - it's smooth and quiet - the deeper harp is really nice and roomy. Is this the only machine I own - oh no! In fact, Lisa says that I own a "fleet" of sewing machines - LOL.

Yes, I'm spoiled rotten - right down to the core!
