BethAnn arrived home Saturday afternoon, she’s a BERNINA 560 E. Yes dear friends E, for embroidery.
Perhaps a name correction: BethAnne! Get it, with an E. Please feel free to roll your eyes and groan, that’s what I’m doing.
Over the weekend I’ve done a bit of quilting, a bit of piecing, and this morning there will be a bit of embroidery. I found a piece of this purple dupioni silk from another project that is waiting for my attention. I’m still thinking about what to stitch out, though I’m excited to get started making all of the samples I’ll need in order to begin teaching on my own with Floriani. This is going to be some hard work and a lot of fun.
There’s linen, denim, rayon, and a few other fabrics that will come out from their secret hiding places. I may even get brave enough and make my sweetie a new bathrobe at some point before Christmas – embroidering “My Sweetie” on it, so he always remembers.
There is some shifting around that needs to happen in the sewing room to make it fully functional for me. It may involve some serious furniture moving. Because I think I have the tables in the wrong space. Gah!! Save me from myself. The basement has been given serious consideration, but I think I’ll wait on that.
So watch this space, and Instagram for projects as they happen.
PS I found the lamé let the embroidery begin
