Opps, no tutorial...

So it didn't work to write up a tutorial yesterday. I simply ran out of time. So that won't start till next week. 

Anyhow, I do have some exciting news. I finally found the cable to use for getting the pictures off of the camera!!!

So that means I have just downloaded a whole bunch of pictures and simply have to sort through them and post them. So you have something to look forwards to.

I had mentioned last year that I made my first gingerbread house and had taken pictures to post. Well, here they are. I know.... really, really, really, late. 




And I would like to introduce you to one of my best friends. That's right, my sewing machine! She is a Bernina 930. None computerized, all metal parts and a dream to sew on. I shall write a review on her one of these days.


The other day I learned how to use my new favorite toy, the gathering foot!


I also learned how to use my ruffler.


There were piles like this all around the house as I played with the different stitch length/thread tension ratios.


I took pictures and will post a tutorial on them both. 


You can actually sew and pleat at the same time. So you can pleat one fabric onto another fabric. It is cool.


That's all for now.
