I'm not tired of these yet

It was my region's anniversary day today, so I didn't have to go to my day job. Instead I went to Timaru, the "big smoke" about an hour's drive north which is in Canterbury region so everything was open. And I bought an embellisher! But not home with me as they have to order it in. I'm getting a Janome Xpression. My big sewing machine is a Janome 6500P, which is a quilting machine. That means it has no free arm so does not darn jeans and the like! I do those on the Pfaff, which has gone to the same store I went to today to get its tension fixed. A girl's gotta have more than one sewing machine!

This afternoon, I made a few more of my little business card holders. I've never done this sort of little-item-with-embellishment before, and I'm surprised how much I'm enjoying it.

While in Timaru, I saw some cardigans and jerseys that had felted-like flowers and stuff on them for over $200. I can do that!

Sometimes I'll hit upon something small and enjoyable and I'll end up making 20 or so just because its so fun.
