Several months ago Donna from Follow That Thread sent me a spool of Aurifil Lino (linen). Donna has a bit of a sense of humor and drew a smilie face on the wooden spool. That wooden spool will be a keepsake forever. All it needs is a little red pompon and voila! a clown like me.
I asked Donna what size needle, I’ve learned one very important thing – a size 100/16 needle is essential for machine work as the thread is slightly slubby, only slightly and not in an unattractive way. I love how this stitches up. I could have played with the Lino for hours and hours and hours. And hours. I My next bit of play was to draw something of a Zentangle type quilted block with “Aurifil Lino” stitched in. I will need more of this thread.
I used Superior Magnifico in the bobbin and would do so again not to waste this precious thread.
A couple of weeks ago Katia asked on the “Quilting, bubbling, quilting” post where we find the stitch count on our BERNINA 7 Series Machines. Below are a series of photos below showing step by step how to get to this screen. This is a good thing to know particularly if BERNINA has come out with software and/or firmware updates for the 7 Series machines. I have a habit of touching the screen with my finger and that’s good. Using the stylus is so much more effective.
