Lots of Love Coasters

Valentines's Day is near and my shop is getting busy.  I whipped up these coasters (and a few others which are not listed yet) this weekend.  I have a crazy story to go along with the coasters, too!  So I was sewing up a storm and all of a sudden my machine was going without me.  I thought maybe I was going crazy, so I picked up the presser foot to check... and it just kept sewing.  I was thuroughly freaked out.  And a bit miffed that I could not finish my projects!  I told my husband there was a ghost in my craftroom and could he please come and help me.  He was laughing at me, as, sure enough, the machine sewed on it's own again (mind you, it was usually after I sewed and took my foot off the pedal... it would keep going.  but sometimes it would stop and then slowly start again).  I googled it "janome sewing machine won't stop sewing on it's own" (as I laughed at the ridiculousness) and found that the issue was in the presser foot / pedal.  Apparently if it gets lint or thread in in, it can mess up the sensor.  Hubby unscrewed it and blew the dust out for me. Now, the machine is running well again.  But I will not soon be forgetting the day my machine was possessed.  [And the comments in the forum were hilarious.  People were talking about how they took their machines in and the service department looked at them like they were crazy!!]

This is the perfect gift for someone you love -- or for yourself!  Bring them out every February to brighten up your home!

There are only a few sets, so get a set of Lots of Love coasters now if you are interested!

Oh yeah, and the verse on these is Proverbs 3: 5-6.


  1. Very pretty!! I think I would have been a little freaked out by the "possessed" sewing machine too!!

  2. Can you imagine that conversation... "um matt?? I think my sewing machine is possessed!!" hahaha
