Lisa is working on getting the video ready. She’s had a bit of a technical delay…the cord to connect the camera to the computer went missing. She searched and searched, with no success. Bang.Head.Here! A new cord procured and Lisa is well on the way. This photo was accidental. Funny, but accidental. The memory on Lisa’s camera got full right before our last moment. After mounting my camera on her tripod. My new camera that is barely broken in, so we’re both trying to figure out what button to push. I turns out it’s not the same button for taking a photo. Pressing that button gets photos like this an action shot of sorts. What cracks me up is the look on my face…so serious. Lisa and I were having a great time and laughing.
After a long wait I finally have the BERNINA Patchwork foot for the 9 mm wide machines with Dual Feed, the 97 D. Alas it is in my sewing room untouched. And will be that way until shortly after I get home from Road to California. I am in a final push for prep for my classes. And we have some family changes that have kept me out of my sewing room while we get ready. It’s a lovely change and I’m excited about it.
After seeing what Sarah Vedeler can do with the Silhouette Cameo I got the Silhouette Portrait. Sarah Designed It’s a Sterling life on Berkeley Square for BERNINA using the Cameo and the embroidery features on the BERNINA 880 Sterling Edition. It’s gorgeous. Both the machine and the quilt.
I am planning on using the Portrait for a project in the book and for a few other quilts that are rambling through my head. Being able to cut shapes quickly and easily is kind of exciting. Sarah gives some great tips in her blog posts.
