Those who can, do and...

those who are intimidated by their new sewing machine and (an ever present) fear of failure, procrastinate by 

Making bread

and soup. But then I pulled out the Alexander Henry fabric I've had for a while intending to make a pillow for J's office and decided to "jump in". Earlier in the day I had read the Janome manual (while recovering from an unfortunate steaming-hot-coffee-grounds meets left foot accident - scary) and this project gave me the opportunity to try out a number of the mechanical exercises therein. Quite user friendly, this machine is. 
Have a lot to learn but the people at 
Mainely Sewing give unlimited instructions along with the purchase. 

Even though I am not thrilled with the way the cording turned out because I couldn't manage to get the needle close enough to the base of the cord (lesson please) despite using the zipper foot, I am relatively happy with how this turned out. No matter what, just LOVE this fabric!!
