Janome Memory Craft 350

Dream! Dream! Dream!
Wishing, wishing this is mine! LOL But it's not! This embroidery machine belongs to my friend, Haminah. She just left for Hanoi and put this machine in my care!!! Told me to play around with it!!! Woohooo!!! I better start reading the manual!!! LOL

For info, Luke went for his knee replacement surgery and is doing well. This is the second week after the surgery and he is walking without crutches and even started driving!! He still has to do a lot of physio sessions though. Can't wait to go back to my sewing rhythm!!!

I have not been blogging lately because my hubby and I have been in and out of doctors' clinics and I have not been doing a lot of sewing. His knee is giving him a lot of problem and he dreaded the news that the docs gave him. He needs a total knee replacement.

I just finished quilting and binding this baby quilt. Made some progress with the Swiftquilter. I am getting very comfortable with it!! Will be putting a bigger quilt on the frame soon!

It's just one stop to Orchard Mrt from Newton so I arrived there around 630AM! Found my way to Ion City and guess what??? I was not the first in the queue!!!! LOL.. second in fact!!! To cut the story short, I managed to buy two ipads and was the first to pay and get them. There were many people who made a beeline to get the covers but I thought I better buy the ipads and get out of the shop fast!!! For info, the original Apple ipad covers got sold out before the ipads!!! So I had to make this one for Luke!!!
I used the pattern for the Japanese handbag for this but had to modify it a bit because the ipad is smaller in size. I added 1/2 in of the same fabric all round the pattern. Made a flap with magnetic button. This fabric is nice because it doesn't look too feminine! Most of the fabrics I have are printed with tiny flowers of some sort!!
