Happy Anniversary, Janome!

Posted on: January 14th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon
I love my Janome.  What a great friend to have!  Such good times!
Janome has been with me since we met at the Sew and Save in Stratford, Ontario, Canada one year ago this past Saturday.
We’ve been through a lot together since then.  Mostly a lot of fabric.  The mending pile rarely gets a second glance since Janome came into my life.  To be honest, I am truly afraid that some of the items from that pile may hurt my Janome.  I mean, it’s not that I think that Janome is fragile or anything….  He’s a sturdy little guy…. But I just don’t want to take any chances!  I don’t know what I’d do without him!
I used to spend a lot more time with my LG…  It wasn’t always easy to get a turn though.  Being on dial-up means that only one person can access the cyber world at a time from my home.  And I do have a 13 year old daughter under the same roof.  She has been so much more Facebookier since Janome moved in.
Sadly, now that it has been a year, I will have to part ways with Janome – only temporarily – I hope!  It’s time for his checkup….  I don’t know how I will fill my time while we’re apart.  Perhaps neglected housework will be something to fill my time while he is gone?  Spend some time staring at that ol’ television?  Read a book?  Write a book?
Well, aside from taking on some of the housework chores, I’ll likely be drawing and doodling – trying to come up with some new ideas for when Janome returns.  It won’t be easy looking at that empty space on the worktable.  Chin up now, Lorna!  You can do this.  We’ll get through it!  Keep your eye on the fabric totes.
How do you cope with separation anxiety?
