I’m spinning …

I’m not sure if it’s from all the sweet comments on my giveaway post
Or maybe it’s my new “Whirlygig Halloween Table Runner” …
Or, or, or perhaps it’s the FABULOUS new sewing assistant I brought home with me from Oregon.

Here’s a sneak at the table runner …

My version of this much more fabulous original. Don’t get me wrong, I really like it, but I’m not totally satisfied … which means I’ll just have to make more. I’ll post more pictures and a few notes about how I created mine later this week.

Now look close, did you spot my new assistant?

No, it’s not the iced tea … that is a sewing essential. Look closer … hmmm

Well we’re not in Kansas anymore and that’s not my trusty Singer.

Oh no … this is “Miss J” my lovely, oh so proficient new assistant with a resume long enough to create a manual :). My wonderful husband not only highly encouraged me to upgrade my work horse, he went and picked it up for me while I frolicked at the pumpkin patch with my best friend and her sweet baby girl. Which is good because I *might* just have sewer’s guilt that I didn’t need or merit this machine … but now I can say he bought it for me :).

We’re still in those first days of training, learning each other’s personalities and all that new employee mumbo-jumbo, but I have a pretty good feeling that we may soon be best friends!

Happy Creating!

P.S. The giveaway (see post below) will be open for comments until Sunday, October 25th. Stay tuned Monday, the 26th for the winner, a new promotion and maybe another giveaway?!?
