it's been a long time comin

This is my new baby, Bernice.....I've been waiting for her since June. She's a Babylock Quest which is their version of Janome's 6600. Can I just say....I'm in sewing heaven. She has a dual feed system like the pfaff and the lighting is so good I don't need any extra. She sewed perfect little stitches and can make 8mm decorative stitches. It's love, I tell ya!



I will be spending the next week or so sewing up some Christmas stockings for Newborns in Need. I volunteered to make 36 of them and I figure that will use up about 45 yards of fabric from my stash.....woohoo!
I am thrilled that the "Cake" post made so many of you laugh. I did think it was so funny and too good not to share. Hope you are having a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by....I love it when you do.
