Having almost too much fun, almost :)

Day before yesterday I went to the local Bernina shop and picked up a new foot. This one is for cording, which I think would look splendid in some of my work. I am also thinking about ordering a walking foot, but they are pricy and it is becoming a toss up between that and a needle felting foot. OH, decisions, decisions!
Yesterday we went to the big city :)  looking for hats for the sun and a wedding I am going to next month. I got a very nice sun hat, but nothing for the wedding. Not sure what to do about that. I could make a Facinator.................

I am thinking about making up some postcards for the show in October. Small things sell better than large pricy things, and there isn't much I can do for hand work right now. Also thinking about trying to make a couple of some really cool buttons at Windsor Button Shop yesterday :)


  1. I find that whole Bernina foot thing - frustrating - why are their feet so much??? Geesh!

  2. I don't know why, but I have been spoiled. My other machine came with a zillion feet that did everything. So DH said he would get me the walking foot for my B-day! Big sewing store sale tomorrow too!
    PT today. Coming along, coming along.
    I got Sarah Ann Smith's book, Thread Work Unraveled - so far it is a good book, but so it the advice I get weekly from the thread people.
