My new toy :)

Yesterday I have got my new toy.

The Janome Expression. It is a machine without threads and a spool house. You can make wool-felt with it and punch different materials together.

I have tried it out yesterday evening and the result was a Fall / Autumn piece from wool and yarns.

Today I have cut that piece up into a notebook cover for a swap and 3 atc's.

It is a joy to work with the machine and this will be not the last post about it!

I have to discover a lot and practise a lot but it is fun!

I've done some hand needle felting and loved the effect. I'm sure you and your new machine will be best of friends :-)

Your new toy looks very interesting! I like felt, I would like to swap one of your ATCs when you'll have one free

Oh, I've never seen one, Ati! Thanks for putting up the picture. I've heard so much about them. I didn't realize it had the look of a sewing machine.
