Well, Hello Kitty!

A major milestone occured this week. This girl who hates sewing and never did well in Home Economics class (for those who remember those classes that we had to take in high school). I decided after looking at all the beautifully stitched cards that my fellow Clear Dollar Stamps design team members were producing, that I was in the minority and felt "out of the loop". So, I splurged on a stamping purhase, and bought this darling "Hello Kitty Janome 3/4 Sewing Machine. The machine features 6 Stitches, 17 Functions, Freearm, Buttonholer, Foot Control, and for those who were wondering it is the same model as the Janome 1117S, but the Janome 1117S doesn't have the cute Hello Kitty face and graphics on it. In fact, the Janome 1117s is $30.00 cheaper because Hello Kitty isn't adorning the machine.

So, I'm now adding stitching to my cards, and having a blast with my new Hello Kitty green sewing machine. I must give credit to Tori Wild, my CDS team sister who purchased the same machine first and learned how to sew beautifully on it and creates wonderful stitching on her cards. Thanks Tori!

When you're looking at my stitching...remember I'm still new at this! ; )

I think you are already a PRO--it looks fantastic!! I agree--I am in complete awe of the sophisticated beauty of stitching and I do not have a sewing machine. Linda, you just may end up being MY inspiration for finally getting one too! Or, maybe if I'm really good, Santa might bring me one for Christmas, lol! :) Thanks for this great share! I love your Hello Kitty machine--super cute and fun! Have a blast--I will seeing what you make next! xoxo

Oh, this is SO CUTE! I have to say though, that your card's couldn't get any more beautiful! Awesome stitching on your first one, by the way!

How stinkin' cute is that!! I miss my machine, still kickin' myself for not bringing it with me. I hate to buy another one when I have one sitting in storage in the states. I'll just have to admire all your stitched cards!
hugs, Jami
