My new best friend - Day 182

 So I would like to introduce you to my new best friend! The Janome HD3000. I did a lot of research and I decided that I didn't want a digital sewing machine. We had some at  college and they were always having issues, so I thought I would stick to the traditional setup.

So here it it when it arrived in the box.

Here is the second box. Can you tell I am excited?

Here are all the parts and the machine with the case on. There is a foot, instruction manual, and extra packet.

Here is my beautiful machine! I love how sleek it is. 

here is a closeup of the stitches and switches.

Here is the needle. I love that the bobbin case is loaded on the top and it has a clear plate so you can see when you are getting close to being out of thread. 

 Yes, I took a picture with Carl. Yes, I just gave my machine a dudes name. I just thought "What would I want to yell when I get mad at the machine?" -Carl came to mind and stuck.

My most favorite part of the machine is the hidden space on the top. It holds all the spools, knobs, feet and at the top there are instructions  for each stitch and foot.

It purrs like a kitty and is smooth like butter. 
I love it and I can't believe I didn't get a new one sooner!
Here is the link to amazon with more pictures and specs.

So, so nice. That is exciting. I love that you named it. I laughed when you said it's smooth like butter because I said the butter thing on the phone when you said it was so smooth!!! So glad you have a new one now!
