Full Time Bunny

Today was my first day as a full time Voodoo Rabbit after my forced retirement from the computer games industry. I can't say that I really miss the games industry that much, it could be very stressful at times and it just hasn't been in good shape since the economic crisis hit last year.

To celebrate my impending career change I decided it was finally time to purchase the sewing machine upgrade that I have been promising myself for the last few years. On Saturday Cloud and I popped into the local sewing machine shop and picked this little baby up.

New Sewing Machine

It is a Janome Memory Craft 4900 and my first computerised sewing machine, which takes a bit of getting used to after only using mechanical ones since I was a kid. Case in point, you can crash this one, which I accomplished by swaping from a twin needle to a single needle and forgetting to change the setting. The machine gets confused and has a mini crash during which it will no longer swap from twin needle mode to single needle mode and hense the bobbin timing is no longer correct. Luckily Cloud is the kind of level headed person who reads manuals in this sort of crisis and we were able to reset the machine, disaster averted.

I will be using it to sew up a few items that will appear in the Etsy store in the next week or two.

I will also be shutting down my Not Dark Enough blog site soon, as I now have permission to post all of my sewing exploits here:)
