Autumn Whimsy's

Life still continues to be crazy here and my blog updates are still too far apart. Dad is still holding in there but has a lot of ups and downs with his tumors and of course with school underway, there is always a lot of distractions. However, we continue to work madly away in the mean time on new releases. I just need to now divert more energy to administrative things like keeping our blog and gallery up to date!

Anyhow - my concentration lately has been on those wonderful upcoming holidays such as Thanksgiving, Halloween and my favourite season - Autumn (even though it is Winter here in Australia!!!). I just wanted to take a moment to give you a sneak peek of one of the sets I am working on - Swirly Autumn. I am having so much fun with this set - so I hope you enjoy the preview! And of course my thanks to Olivia for the absolutely inspiring artwork!

A Long Awaited Update

It seems like forever since I have blogged and I apologize. With my father having taken ill, some things have slipped. The good news is that his treatment has been effective and we know we have some more time with him though he has new spots of brain cancer starting up. So my blogging could still be patchy.

In the mean time, I just wanted to post a sneak peek of our upcoming sets! I have two sets in progress at the moment, My Pet and Cuddly Kittens.
Also, I just wanted to add a tip! Be sure to keep your machines serviced regularly - it is amazing how well they run after a service. I just had my Janome 11000 serviced for the first time since I got it about 4 years ago.... I had noticed it getting louder and not as smooth. I have tended not to get my machine serviced as I can not live without it for a week, but it is now working brilliantly..... Personally, I think it actually calls for me to get a second machine so that I can afford to get them serviced more regularly given thier use.... That's what I am telling myself anyway.
For those of you in the US, have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.
