All I Want For Christmas!

All I want for Christmas is a new sewing machine!  Well, that is not quite true.  I am really looking forward to 2 of my 3 kids and their families (including 2 of my 3 grandchildren) home for Christmas.  But, if I was making out a want list for Christmas, it would be a new sewing machine.  I've been watching e-bay for a used Janome 6600, and I think that is really what I would like.  I have outgrown my Janome 3050.  Oh, it's great for most things, but I really need one with a walking foot for machine quilting.

If you have the Janome 6600, please leave me a comment about how you would rate this machine.  Also, if you are using another machine that also has a walking foot, please leave me recommendations!

Besides dreaming of a new machine, I've been doing lots of sewing/baking/candy-making for Christmas.  My mom always made date-nut bread at Christmas time.  It was the gift we gave our teachers, the mailman, the bus driver, and anyone else who needed a small gift.  So, today I made the traditional date-nut bread.  Yes, it is baked in tin cans.  I miss you, Mom, especially during the holidays.

  1. You already know that I have the 6600 and I love it. I can even monogram, even tho the letters are quite small. Two drawbacks of this machine: it is not a free arm (but I have another that is) and it is very heavy to carry. Overall, it has been worth buying!
