Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Lost power when the storms blew through, but up and going again. Have more pieces traced and more of them cut out and bagged. Ran out looking for freezer paper for the larger pieces and finally found some at the third grocery store I went to. WalMart didn't have any which surprised me. Also picked up more gallon baggies for my pieces. The freezer paper will be traced with the large pieces, trimmed and ironed onto the fabric. Then I cut out the pieces and add a thin line of glue around the edge before

There are so many things- in addition to those mentioned I saw
a teddy bear and a doll.

I have snapdragons, hollyhocks, sunflowers, cosmos, 3 kinds of peppers, carrots, beans, tomatoes etc. Now to trace the larger pieces and get them ready to fuse.The prep work
I have a new bernina 820. What kind of carrier has anyone used successfully. The shop recommends a tutto (?) XL bag.

Love the fabric I had for G1 - been looking for a place to use it! Was happy to use the multiple HST's method (8) to do G2. Nice to do a strictly piecing block!
Have been working on my quilt and thought i would say hi and down a nice cup of coffee and a slice of home made plum cake that i made with fresh plums from the garden.
Good evening....how can I tell if I have model 15-88 or other? Mine has the serial # beginning in AJ so I know it is 1948 to 1950. My bobbin tension regulator is on the side, not the front. I need bobbins and want the get the right ones. Any help please???
Today I was able to prep the enlarged patterns, trimming them and joining pieces so they are ready to trace onto the fusible. I traced snapdragons. squash, peppers, tomatoes and carrots. They are now ready to fuse to the batik fabrics! Tomorrow I have a trip planned to Fabric Corner to raid the 1895 batiks.
I also have some sailboats traced and ready to fuse for another project and need dark and light blues for them. This is a possible entry into a book being written by a friend. My quilt
