Boy is it HOT! and it's only the first of April! I can not believe the weather this year! I'm not much of an outdoor person anymore. Used to love to go fishing but we just don't go much. DH can't handle rough ground much and so we are limited on areas he can navigate. I am just such a wimp anymore. I'd rather be inside where it is nice and cool and I always have tons of stuff to do.
I do enjoy going outside with the grands as long as it isn't too hot or too cold. I'm so not into
I purchased a bernina artista 180 on eBay recently. I have never had an embroidery machine before. Does anyone still use one of these? I would really like to learn the embroidery function
I have Bernina 1230 bought for my Grandmother new in 1986 or 87. She used it sporadically for about 2 years. When she passed I got the machine. It's in really pristine condition with about 21 different feet, a bunch of attachments. Everything is original Bernina including a Bernina Pin Buddy. I never used it. I lost my job a year ago and I want to sell it. Can anyone tell me what its worth? I would like to be a little more knowledgeable before I talk to some local dealers.
Any suggestions for a good, but inexpensive machine for traveling?

very nice quilt
This is a small quilt - 26" x 26". It has a 10" center appliqued block and 42 hourglass blocks that surround it.
I quilted this on my longarm machine and learned a valuable lesson about pressing the quilt top first.
I had a lot of difficulty quilting (small meandering) in the area where the hourglass blocks joined each other. If I went over the corner where they all converged, my machine lugged down and the stitches were small. If I went around them,
While at our beach house this past weekend, I went to the local quilt shop in search of some black/white fabrics to finish a project that I wanted to do for the local library. The block I am making is from "Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol. 4" magazine. I have three made for a wall hanging and need to finish the assembly and do the hand work.
It's always a nice time to visit with the owner who has become a good friend and to do some show and tell.
While I was showing
Mom recently passed away and left behind a quilting stand that my Dad made her. It is about 8 feet in length when put together. I would be willing to give it to someone if the could use it.
I have an item that I am very proud and excited to show off. I have been working on this little Lazy Susan Storage/Sewing Center for a couple of months with a group of quilters online. It all started with a request from a quilting board member to make a simple thread holder for hand quilting.
This is what we created:
A 14" Lazy Susan with 5 magnets. The magnets hold your Thread Caddy, thread spools, notion box, pin cushion and magnetic pin dish. All of these
