Fav #5 - Mr ? ~ Don't Forget The Giveaway!!

He prefers to be turned ON and doesn't like turn-offs...
...doesn't mind a little gas...
...he keeps me in stitches...
..and works best when electrified.
He bears a striking resemblance to Mr. Selleck...

don't you think? Meet Mr. Janome. Yup, I have spoken highly about him with you before.
Mr. J. and I don't get to spend as much time together as we would like to, but
we did have some quality time together yesterday. He is a huge help to me and
enables me to get my projects done. I love him!


He assisted me in finishing a custom order tote bag yesterday...

..and awhile back helped to create Matilda. I had to share this picture of the cute little
crocheted dress that I found at an antique store. It makes a darling little apron for little Matilda for now. I know a sweet someone who is making some PRECIOUS little dresses for sale...you should check them out...they are fabulous!


Well, this concludes my list of my five favorite things, but quite honestly there are scads more. My family, however, rates first and foremost. Without them, life would just be plain yogurt. They are the honey, the joy...my loves.



There is still time to enter my 1st blogiversary giveaway. Just leave a comment on that post.

A girl and her sewing machine should never be parted. Did you design the cover. LoL...


That is an adorable bag. It has a fifties look about it. The ruffle really makes it special.

ROFL at your sewing machine. You are too funny today! Wouldn't it be funny if Tom ran across this one!

The Scottie bag? Well oh my golly goodness that is way, way, way beyond adorable. How did you make this up so fast? Did you give up sleeping?

The crochet apron is so adorable. Matilda will be cookin' up something good with that on. Muchas gracias for the linko!

Hey, Mr. Janome sounds "alright", but you should see my Bernie and Bernie, Jr.! It's best if you say Bernie like Hugh Grant said it in Notting Hill - "Bernie" with a British accent!

Love, Love, Love the bag. I'm seriously going to have to commission you to make one for me one of these days.

See ya soon, Ma Ma Mia!

Connie said...

Oh, becks sweet darling, those are adorable, but truly, my sweets, I prefer Tom Selleck!! Son just got home from 10 days in Scotland at St. Andrews golfing and had a fabulous time but said next time he'll take wife and kids as it's no fun without someone to share it with! Hah....... as his mother I could have kissed him if he was here and not telling me that on the phone.....
Smoochies,
Connie
