Turtles and JaneyMae

Okay - since I spent the money for the machine, I feel obligated to sew.
Well, that's one way to get a fire lit under me.
So I've been testing out my machine, sewing on my turtles.
So far so good. 

Warning: More Gushing about my machine.
I mentioned that the Skyline S5 has 170 stitches - and they are easy to find on this panel. Also I can wind a bobbin without unthreading my machine.  Yay.

Also it has better, brighter lighting.  See how nice this lighting is?

I have to try new (faster) ways of doing things, and I decided to just place the pattern on top and sew around it.  Of course I have to be careful not to sew on top the pattern.  So far, so good. 

I'm thinking of calling her JaneyMae.

So another nice thing about JaneyMae is the AUTO THREADER!
You know this is a must.  And it's so easy.

Happy Stitching,
Nicely Linda


  1. Another cute. Turtle.
    JaneyMae looks like a great new friend. Enjoy playing with her.

  2. JanieMae Janome! Yes!! Have fun playing and learning. I have a needle threader, but I've never got the hang of it. I'm going to have to have lessons as my vision worsens with my advancing age. Love the turtle!

  3. That turtle is so darling - and what is more fun than learning a new machine!!

  4. It looks like you're having fun and building a good relationship with JaneyMae.
