Have You Joined SJA Yet? ...and My New One!

Sewing junkie!  Yeah! that's what I am!    I just can't seem to get enough of it.  Guess that's why my embroidery machine is always clicking away while my Janome 6500 and I are having another bonding session.   

Believe me, if there was some way I could run my embroidery machine and both of my Janome sewing machines and use my GO cutter to cut the next project, all at the same time,  I would.  Just haven't been able to figure out how to do that ........YET!    

There's always SJA ...(Sewing Junkies Anonymous) but, I just can't bring myself to join and GO to those meetings.  They'd probably make me give my stash away!   Oh No! goodness.....what a thought!

Pictures on a post are always more fun, than just talking, so......

The sewing progress of my latest quilt.   And...Yes, the squares and binding were cut on my GO cutter.

Here's one of my faithful "helpers" hanging out with me and my Janome while I sew on the binding.

Sassy Chocolate and Bright Pinks...shabby chic...ahhh!    (oops..picture is a bit blurry!)

Close up, that's better.    This one is now for sale in my Etsy store.

Thanks GO to Sew Cal Gal and Accuquilt for this next picture.  I was one of four lucky winners on her recent blog giveaway and chose the Rose of Sharon die, designed by Sharon Pederson.  Can hardly wait to use it and create something with it....maybe a couple new pillows for my sofa.   Sew Cal Gal is one of my favorite blogs to visit and she is constantly informing everyone about the latest happenings in the sewing world.  You should definitely GO visit her blog and become a follower.

Thanks for visiting......and come back soon.


  1. Love your quilt. Really cute and cuddly.

    Glad you like your new die too. I am currently working on a secret project with the Rose of Sharon die. Love it!


  2. I have the Rose of sharon but haven't even opened it yet...want tooo but just haven't...well..congrats...

    Love your quilt.

  3. Yes the 6500 is a dream like YOU said it would be! Love the finished quilt, the colors are beautiful!!

  4. LOVE the pinks & browns! I think we change the name of your support group to something positive, like Sew Junkies Unite so that it's not a kick your habit kinda club, but a watch me GO! kinda club!

  5. I love pink and brown together! <3 And Im wayyyy down for "Sew Junkies Unite" Sounds like a soccer team!

  6. Adorable! I wasn't quite sold on the GO cutter, but maybe I'll give it a second glance. What do you like most about it? What about it is a drag? Thanks!
