Bonne année

New year, new post.

So what's kept me so busy that I've posted only a handful of times in nearly 2 years? Truthfully, I'm not quite sure. However, I felt compelled to post today. When that annual urge strikes, I act! Not that I've really much to say. Hmmm... What to write about?

Perhaps the newest addition to my life? No, not these two cheeky scamps:

But this! Yes, this is very good indeed:

Meet my beautiful new sewing machine, courtesy of one Edward Steel.

Unashamedly stolen from the John Lewis website
(please don't sue me), the Janome 7025 Sewing Machine features:

24 stitches and a 1-step buttonhole. Also features free arm, foot pressure adjustment, one hand thread cutter, drop feed dog and space for storing accessories underneath the machine. Exclusive to John Lewis. Hard cover.

They left off the best features. Automatic needle threader, built-in ruler, and the orgasmic *drop-and-load bobbin*. That last one's for you, Rebecca. Come over anytime.
