Omiyage Progress

Pine Cone Omiyage progress
Omiyage Progress

I'm running out of time for the pinecone omiyage, but it will get done before Christmas. This has definately been a hand sewing project. Hand sewing is the only way I've been able to get all those little sides joined together with precision. If I tried to machine this I think it would be a big mess by now.

Well... back to sewing!

Flat Bed Sewing is a Go!

Flat Bed Setup
Flat Bed Insert for my Janome

I picked up the new insert for my sewing cabinet yesterday but still haven't found the time to try it out yet. I'm really happy it fits the cabinet and machine considering that little piece of plastic cost $80! (almost twice as much as the second hand cabinet!)

I'm about to go and do some sewing. I've been so busy lately but I have a few things to finish before Christmas so I need to utilise my time to the max, which will probably mean less blogging. If you're wondering what else I've been doing, the drawing challenge is going well and takes up around 30 minutes a day - sometimes the bulk of my spare time before bed. Check out the daily sketches on My Sketchbook.

The new insert means that I have a spare insert for a Husqvana/Viking machine. The serial number of the insert is #180 and I can ship it to you in the sturdy carboard my replacement came in. It has a mark from masking tape on the front which will come off and a couple of scratches. They're usually AU$80 new and I'm asking for AU$20+postage. Buy the feet (below) as well and I'll ship it all together. Click for more details and photos.

Postage is:
$15 within Australia - Express Post
$22-30 international depending on your location

What machine are these for?
Husqvana/Viking sewing machine feet

Two Husqvana machine feet - These are a buttonhole sensor foot (usually $120, but I'm asking AU$60) and utility foot B (usually $25, but I'm asking AU$10). These feet are for sale in my online shop, but if you're interested and think my prices are too high on them please get in touch and tell me what you think they're worth.

Special blog offer - buy all 3 for AU$100 including shipping anywhere in the world.
All prices are AU$
