Finally..something on this background!


This background has been staring me in the face for months now and since I really like the background I was afraid of messing it up by adding something to it. That happens, you know. But I decided to go for it and do something with it. It is on a 12 x 12 Ampersand cradled board/canvas.  I drew the letters and painted them in. Not great Roman capitals but Reggie is not critiquing at this one so I think I am ok.(Anyone a "Reggie" student?) If you are you will know exactly what I mean. As you can see I added some stamps and my favorite..PUNCHANELLA!!! Oh how I love punchanella.  

I went to the Bernina store today!  AND>>>>>I bought one!!!  I got the Artista 220 on sale since they didn't have any refurbished ones. And of course, Macaulay's is way better BUT this one is a sweet machine too. I sat there and sewed a little book together while I was there. I am so excited. I should get it in a few days since they had to order it.  DH had to spot me a little cash to get it but I had most of it.   WEEEeeeee!!!

This canvas is beautiful! My mother would love this one.

Congrats on your new Bernina! I can't wait to see what you make with it. Did you get it from Paula's Fine Fabrics?

Martha, I love this piece. Perfect colors! Congrats on the 220. I picked up a little antique today, a little Singer 221 feather weight. Now I have something to carry with me when I go to retreats. The 830 is way too big! You are going to love your machine!!
