So................ take a deep breath and here we go..........
One of the saving graces of a 'virtual world' is that you can't see my red face and how flustered I am! :)
Yvonne (Mum) here, tackling the intricacies of technology and hoping that she doesn't frighten off Correne's carefully nurtured friends!!
I thought I'd start my adventure in blogland by telling you about the newest addition to our household. Much longed for and eagerly awaited for quite some time. Quite a miracle really.
Isn't she a beauty? She's a Pfaff Quilt Expression 4 and I'm definitely in love with her! My previous machine was nearly thirty years old and, like me, a bit sluggish and frayed around the edges! She's now gone to pastures new up the motorway to help an aspiring quilter realise her dreams. I'm sure Jade will love her and they'll have lots of fun together.
I've spent some time playing with my new baby and once I was comfortable doing the ordinary stuff I used a few of the 200!!!!! stitches
to embroider and machine quilt a project. Such fun!!! :) And now after the big build up I'm going to have to let you down.......... no no it's no good trying to tempt me not even chocolate or even fabric will sway me ............... definitely no pictures for now or else I'll give the game away! ;) Actually, if you happen to have some Sherbet Pips you don't know what to do with you could probably twist my arm! Well you know, everybody has a price don't they?
Just to placate you before I go I'll share my current WIP. I'm following Aneela's (Comfortstitching) Pickle dish Quilt along to make a gift for Oliver and Jade's wedding. They asked for pastels so here they are
3 Sisters Simplicity and Aviary. I think I might have done a few too many wedges but hey ho! I'm off to work on it now so happy sewing to you too. Take care. xx
