I accomplished quite a lot for me. Of course a lot of chatting also occured.
Each of these flowers is stitched down very close to the edge, then stems are stitched in. Finally , the background is heavily quilted.
Unfortunately, I need to take a break from the fun of stitching this project, as my machine needs a service badly.
My dear Bernina 440 is now residing at the sewing machine shop for the next week. Yes, that's a whole week!!!
I can only stand in my sewing room and look at the empty space in the sewing table. Sigh.
My DH constructed this fabulous table several years ago for me. What a man!
Off to have a cup of tea now, and try to get ahead on some hand sewing.
