Canadian Gail left a comment the other day asking to see a picture of my sewing machine - to help her with inspiration to finish a quilt. I'm always happy to oblige, so here it is.
I have a Bernina, I can't remember exactly how long I've had her, but I'd say around 10 years. Bernie is so reliable and strong, it'd be a very hard decision to replace her. You see in the picture that I'm finishing the outside border on Maureen's quilt - I took the picture yesterday, and I have now given her the quilt - she just loves it!
Gail, I hope this gives you the inspiration you need to work on your quilt. Lovely quilting can be done on your regular machine, it just takes practice.
And in other news - yesterday I booked our tickets to the US. I'm really excited about our trip now. I also got the theme park passes the kids were really looking forward to (and me too!), so our planning is starting now. We will fly into San Francisco, spend some time with friends, and then travel down to Anaheim and start the kiddy part of our adventure. After two weeks, Marty and Cam will head home, and Amy and I will stay on another week for some serious quilty fun. Can't wait!
I have to get back to work - my quilty work really has me head down and bottom up right now. TTYL x o x
