Welcome lovely people 🙂
My sewing machine is back from being serviced 🙂 🙂 🙂 I missed it!
I was hoping that it would sew better and sound quieter but it doesn’t. Apart from the stitch length (which has definitely changed) everything else seems to be the same.
I suppose that means that my Bernina has stood the test of time and is as good now as it was when it was brand spanking new 26 years ago.
To welcome it back I did the next chapter from my fmq Craftsy class, I’d watched it while my machine was away and done all the designs on paper so I was ready to go. This was all about adding and removing lines (?)
Interlocking leaves, I experimented with a few different types, I can see this being useful in a border.
I also did an interlocking leaves meander design – this was quite straight forward except I kept finding myself in a closed space but I guess the ability to see ahead of yourself comes with practise.
I really like this swirl flower design, it was fun to do and I think it looks very effective.
and I also had another go at pebbles, loopy lines and stars and straight lines in the spaces between the new designs.
Still need to pluck up the courage to do something on a real quilt!
Until next time,
