I know that lots of you have very nice, very expensive sewing machines. I, on the other hand, have a bunch of used, ancient machines and one fabulous Janome 1600P. A couple of years ago I bought a used machine that has cams and does some decorative stitches. Guess which decorative stitch it doesn't have? The one that looks great when you are doing applique - the blanket stitch. I covet machines with a blanket stitch - and maybe the chicken track stitch. (I am sure there is a real name for it but that's what it looks like to me!) I have a bonus coming next month. I am going to do one responsible thing with the money and then I am going to do one thing for me. Can you guess what it is?
