Nice Weekend

It is a beautiful autumn day that seems like it should have happened in August. We were invited to some friends that live in a beach front community on the CT shore.  We walked the beach both days we were there, had our feet in the water, with the sun shining bright.
We also had our dog with us!  He was afraid of the noise my camera lens makes and started barking at it! This was the resulting picture!
Nice weekend!  Good friends, good food, good time!
Happy sewing,  Michelle

New Addition

I normally drive a Janome 6600 but I needed a new reliable second machine. I have my old Bernina 1630 but it has been having some electrical issues.  It made a trip back to the Bernina factory this summer and of course didn't do the craziness for them, sat on a work table all day and behaved itself.  So it came home with nothing done to it.  The first time I plugged it in the needle went crazy and the screen froze!  So, my sister is flying in for our retreat in November and I needed to have a machine for her to use to Flo!  If you want to know where her name came from you have to ask. So she joins my sewing machine family.  Besides the 6600 and old Bernina, I also have 4 featherweights (3 black, 1 white),  and old Bernina Deco for embroidery, a blind hemmer, a ruffling machine and of course the Gammill.  Flo should feel right at home!  Happy sewing,   Michelle
