Lazy day around the house yesterday. I finished a few more Barn Stars. Eight done, eight more to go. These little blocks are so cute and fun to make. That tiny darker square in the center of each block is a one inch square sewn diagonally on the corner of a 1 1/2" square. Tiny!
In spite of the small size of the pieces, my little Singer Featherweight continues to provide accurate and hassle proof stitching. I regret leaving it in the cupboard for so long! If I had only known all it wanted was the correct needle.
My husband and I are off on an adventure today. We are going to go take a look at a refurbished Bernina Quilter's Edition 440. I am quite excited about picking one up as a second machine to the Bernina 740. Which at this point, I have no idea when I will see again. If you haven't been following along with my saga, it is en route to Peoria, Illinois for repairs to it's electronic system.
The other thing we might do, and this makes me ridiculously happy, is have lunch at Panera. Do you ever eat at Panera? They are known for their good soups and salads, and never disappoint. It is the perfect place to have lunch, and the amount of the servings is just right for a light lunch, and never spoils one's dinner. We have nothing like it in our area, out here in the boonies, but when we venture out into civilization and see a Panera, we always try to stop.
Hope you are all having a good week!
