Well it has been a busy week, and I have not been able to spend as much time on productive sewing as I would have liked. You see I have a new toy that has taken away much of my focus.
It is a good toy and a great distraction. I have waited quite a long time to take this home as it is not cheap. I also did not realize how difficult it is to transition from one sewing to machine to another. But it is a process I am willing to endure! Once I am more familiar with the ins and outs of this machine, I will be sure to post a full review on the Bernina Aurora 440QE. (Just as a side note, I managed to snap a needle with the new Bernina in the first half hour of playing with it, just as I wrecked the needle threader of my Janome when I first got that machine!).
I have made some time to piece together the Jaffa Cake fabrics selected earlier in the week using some lime green linen/cotton blend fabric as sashing, and I am busy quilting it this weekend. I am using the Janome though, as I am not confident enough yet to use the Bernina for straight line quilting.
I hope you all have a great weekend. Rain has been forecast for our weekend in Melbourne, it is much needed but not exactly forthcoming. Please do a little rain dance for us so that these clouds don't just pass us by!
