Let’s hope this week is better

February 20, 2011

I have two meetings on Tuesday. After that, I am hopeful that it will be a quiet week. My boss may be having a meeting with me to answer my question of last week so if that happens, hopefully it will go ok. I plan on taking off the 28th and maybe a few more days if it comes down to it.

I spent the afternoon sewing. I took a class at the Fabric Corner. We used a variety of feet, a quilt design and learned to put in a zipper to make this bag which is called a Humbug Bag. ( link should take you to a similarly designed bag tutorial)  Here is another link. It was fun and I hope to remember enough of it to do it again.

We used the walking foot, Bernina stitch regulator, the embroidery module, the roller foot and a variety of stitches to decorate this project. Not sure what to put in it yet but want to make some more to practice the sewing technques.

A productive day yesterday

It started with the Bernina embroidery club. We embroidered a butterfly on a t-shirt. I hope to do this again in the future.


The beginning of the project
