All cut out and no machine to sew :(
But the Tula Pink Octopus Garden fabric is fab!
114cm wide cotton print
£12.00 per metre
This is what I'll be assembling tomorrow, when the new machine arrives!!
It's from a japanese pattern book - Home Couture. Not a word of english, but great diagrams for instructions!!
Well, here she is!!!
the Bernina 350 PE
After 16 years, I figured it was time to look at new machines!
So I spent a little time yesterday, test driving different makes and models.
My needs are quite simple, a solid work horse, with automatic tension, an automatic keyhole buttonhole and knee lift!
The keyhole buttonhole is the decider, as many machines don't offer it, until you reach the higher ranges. Not sure why, as it's really useful for any dressmaker, wanting to make a jacket.
One more sleep and she'll be here!!

Michael Miller Eiffel Tower prints
I am sooo excited about the Michael Miller order, I'm also a little worried I may have to cut into them all, before they make it into the shop :)
Good job I ordered lots!
Ooooh and some Riley Blake cotton flannels, for those pjs, it could get chilly camping!
