I must tell you about the new sewing machine I bought to take to classes, it's a Janome Gem Platinum 720. Here is a photo of her and she's called Jemima. What a fantastic little worker she is, she fulfilled all expectations and worked like a dream the entire time.
This is in reply to the latest comments. You are a curious lot!
I thought you would probably like a little closer look?
Below is the sample I made as our introduction to the techniques and Carol told us it could be made into a brooch, a bracelet, on a book cover or to make into a pendant. I just love these pendants and intend to make one to go with all my plain outfits. I enjoyed making it and I love the way it looks and rests around my neck. So I think I will make this sample into a pendant. I need your help in deciding whether to have it as it is in the first image or the second? If you want to know about Carol and the workshop check it here
I also made this quick little sample below. I think I will put this back in the frame and work on it a bit more.
DH arrived home from the USA as I was writing this post and I'm very happy to see him, especially as he bought me a very thoughtful gift. A book on jewellery.
I hope that has satisfied your curiosity?
