a Bernina 820 ... the one without the embroidery pack if you're reading this honey! :)
OK ... so maybe we could combine it with my ever looming 40th birthday and every other birthday & Christmas for the foreseeable future .... I'm sure I can talk Mr Don't Look Now into some arrangement !
Besides if I had one I could roll around in my fabric, smile ALL the time & and look at least 10 years younger! That has to be a good thing! OK ... so I already roll around in my fabric but I could definitely loose 10 years!
Today was my first day at the Houston Quilt Festival and my poor feet are feeling very sorry for themselves! I only managed to make it around the vendors today leaving the Quilt show for tomorrow. I bought some fabric ...
... alot that I have used quite extensively in the past, however, they were significantly cheaper than I could ever get at home!
I also collected some batiks ... not my usual fabric choice. I have often admired quilts at shows that have used batiks, however, they are usually ridiculously expensive and when I look at the fabrics individually they do little for me.
So why did I get these? Well they were $1.75 per fat 1/4. How could I not not try them out at that price? (Sorry about the photos .... colours don't do well in hotel rooms!)
I bought a lot of notions for prices that could not be passed!
These needles were introduced to me by Jenny many years ago. They are the best needles for needle turn applique that I have ever used. If you can get hold of them give them a go ... they are terrific!
As for the rest of the family ... well they are all still living it up in Disneyland and are planing some serious Trick or Treating with Mickey tomorrow night!
We all spent the day there on Tuesday in the searing heat!
Megan, Ben & Joshua particularly enjoyed the Jedi show ...
while Jessie cried, screamed and trembled at Daddy's feet!
Ben and Meg have enjoyed some thrill rides ...
Dumbo made me nauseous but eveyone else had a ball!
And Jessie loved the Merry-go-round most of all!
I hope you are all well and having a great week!
PS. I can't manage to send emails so for those who are waiting for a response from me ... I am sorry and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
PSS. You guys know how I hate to show photos of myself ...and this one is NOT a good look but ... I have been hanging out with the stars today!! :)
