Colour Everywhere.


Colour everywhere; the flowering cherries on the driveway look great. They usually only get their photo taken when they are flowering but infact have at least 4 different looks during the year.
I completed my 4 patch blocks to donate to the group quilt.....I did them ever so carefully to be exact...as everyone's need to match.
Shortly I am off for my 1st 2 hour, free lesson with my new sewing machine....yes I am getting it! The Bernina with the stitch regulator...yes, it is expensive but I am going to use it and use it and perfect machine quilting with it I hope! ( eventually !!!)

The colors in that photo are absolutely magnificent!! Can't you just see a quilt with that color scheme? Congrats on your new Bernina with the stitch regulator. I am enjoying mine!

I've been drooling over those stitch regulators too - but I think it's going to be too expensive for me!

I really hate the fact that Bernina won't let any of their dealers post their prices for the machines on their websites - I can't tell if anything's in my price range cuz there's NO prices online! Even Froogle won't work because of that.

Thanks KC. So far so good. I am taking it slowly. Have tried the stitch regulator and think it will still take some getting used to, but I am prepared to practise.
Yes, Forestjane it was very expensive, so I will have to use it a lot to make sure I get my money's worth. I'll keep you posted with my progress. Cheers Ali.

You will absolutely love your new stitch regulator!!! It takes a little practice in learning to use it, but definitely well worth it!!

I love mine to pieces!!! What machine model did you purchase with the stitch regulator? I have upgraded my artista 200 so it is compatible with it.
