Nothing new on my design wall today.  DH spent the day painting the walls in the staircase and hall area leading to my sewing room.  He also added a fresh coat of white to the baseboards and handrails too.  It looks much fresher, although I hope the paint smell goes away by tomorrow.
I did test my new baby, quilting the lastest Christmas runner, and I managed to get the binding stitched before dinner.  I decided on a Bernina 710.  It has the larger throat with all the bells and whistles.  I will never do machine embroidery, so I decided against the 720 (embroidery ready), and the 730 (full embroidery unit etc.)  I have been learning all the ins and outs of fine-tuning and adjusting the stitches to my liking.  

DH had to remove the shelving for painting, so I spent some time sorting through old books, magazines etc., decided what to keep and what to recycle.  We have been trying to downsize our collections - a difficult task!

Head over to Judy's blog, Patchwork Times to see all the creativity!

  1. I'll be curious to hear how you like your Bernina 710. I bought a 730 with embroidery module about 3 years ago and your opening looks bigger than mine.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
