If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Hopefully our son is coming tomorrow.  And though I love the is so special to have him by himself!!!

Also thinking of calling the Bernina dealer today???  Maybe they are doing a Black Friday too.

Mary, If I gave you the idea of looking at a new Bernina....a hundred lashes for me (but only if you buy one) LOL

My daughter phoned me from B.C. and said that she was coming to visit me in Dec. before Christmas.  She has to check in with her suppliers in Montreal.  I'm so happy!  She is a breath of sunshine for me.

When we have a " sew in" at the clubhouse ( getting the pieced tops sandwiched & quilted), l encourage the newbies to start off with a walking foot. I have many ideas on my pinterest board " walking foot stitching" , many with links to tutorials if any of you are interested. My Pinterest boards are under my name...same as here ( avatar is my white cat)

Comment by Mary Moore on Saturday

Riana,  Those were encouraging words.

Carol, I'm checking where you live.

Six machines ought to be enough... Going to look at the Bernia 740, and 770.

Thanks Riana for the info. I wonder what kind of a regulator Baby Lock may have. humm!!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on Friday

I'm sorry, Mary!

There is a book out called "Walk" and it teaches how to machine quilt with your walking foot.  I like to do this and it is speedy and looks nice!

I just ordered my Christmas present from Hubby on the Black Friday sale.  So I had no will power at all!  All precuts!  I don't think I'll be able to take my nap today.  I'm too excited!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on Friday

Thank you, Ginny.  Hubby and I had breakfast with our younger son, Jim, this morning.  He has lots of good stories and keeps us laughing.

I then bought my second pair of Jeggings (jeans+ leggings)  I am so tired of wearing baggy pants and being so unstylish.  I bought a blue knit sweater that is long like a tunic to wear with it.  How did clothes change so fast and leave me behind?  But I'm not the only one.  I noticed today lots of the old ladies in the neighbourhood were in there today buying something. We all shop at "Alia, Tan Jay, Nygaard".  I've never seen anyone under 60 in there.  We see each other coming and going but usually in a different colour.

And I'm still sewing churn dashes today.  My will power has 2 challenges coming up - Black Friday and Cyber Monday concerning fabric.

Thanks for the clarification Riana!

BSR = Bernina Stitch Regulator

It has a sensor that counts threads as they pass under it and tells the machine when to take a stitch. Far superior to any other regulator ...and you pay for that . Only works on computorized Berninas.
