I asked my sewing machine dealer and she suggested I get a pigment pen and write the message on it, what do you think? Thanks ladies, for any help or suggestions.

My only cost was the 2 clips holding it to the upper shelf and the chain. All for less than $15.00. Pretty proud of myself, but tired. So

    Well, today is Labor and I know many go to the Lake and cook out. I will spend my labor day sewing. Which for me is relaxation! I send hours and days sewing and find no problem with. My sewing area is a corner in my living room, I get to be with my family and sew at the same time. Today I will work on finishing the Reunion quilt and then I think I am going to learn to use my Babylock3-407 my cousin gave to me yesterday. Maybe make something new for my new grandbaby, Mary-Jayne!

    Help Please! I would appreciate any tips and advice on using invisible thread to free motion fused applique leaf shapes to quilt border. Do it put the invisible thread into the bobbin also? Any advice on setting tension would be helpful too. Thanks in advance!
