We are back at it again. This time it is the hall/entry that we are redoing. We tore the first layer of wallpaper off and tomorrow we are renting a steamer to remove the next layer of it. Then will come new ceiling lights and doors and trim. It was a cold snowy day with whiteouts and blustery winds outside, so the mood hit me and I was off and running. (Or I should say tearing) Will is studying Finland, so they came over to collect some Finnish things and to experience the Sauna followed by a cold shower. Even Abby tried it out, but didn’t last long, so we read a couple books.
Been having so much fun learning to machine quilt on my Bernina with the BSR! I am not ready for show and tell yet. Maybe when I start actually quilting on the block of the month quilt, then I will post pictures (good or bad). The BSR takes a lot of the stress out of having to try to keep the stitches even while watching where I am going next. It will take a lot of practice even so. That is why I haven’t posted lately, been busy practicing what I am learning on the classes by Leah Day.
This is the new addition to the quilt studio/work room. It is used (32 hours) and has the BSR which should, or is supposed to, help my quilting have more even stitches. That remains to be seen. I have been taking a class on machine quilting on Craftsy.com by Leah Day. If I like the Bernina, I may swap up to a newer model at a later date. The one I bought is a 2010.
