Never thought about decorating my Husqvarna. It is about 15 years old and really could use a facelift!

this makes me tear up! Thank you for a wonderful memory.

I have every intention of cutting my own decals from vinyl on my Silhouette Cameo--just never seem to get that done!

I've known non-quilters who have even put them on their mixers, bikes, etc. Fun!!
The red bubbles from here are what I bought for my HQ Avante. Probably should've gotten the purple ones to match the lettering on the machine, maybe I will and put the red ones on another machine.

I decorate all of my machines. I love Mazda Miatas so I have a "zoom-zoom" sticker on all my machines. I also love the San Francisco Giants baseball team and also the San Jose Sharks so I have their decals on also. My friends loved the "decoration" and some of them have decorated their machines now. It makes the boring beige machines fun.

I'm in the process of covering my machine in my favorite sayings. So far I have

you are my sunshine.....
Do more of what makes you happy.
It's about time you got home!

And I also have some small quilt pictures ready to add.

I never really thought about decorating my machine but I do have a picture of my daughter on mine. I came across this picture while sitting at the machine one day so I grabbed the tape and she now joins me whenever I sit and sew.
