Christmas preparations and other miscellaneous outside activities made a pretty big dent in my sewing time this week. I did manage to get the third block in the Layer Cake Quilt Along done, so have a little that went out. The new Bernina had to go into the shop yesterday, something funky happened with the bobbin case. Though I drooled a lot at all the shop samples and over the new fabric, I walked out without buying anything. So I've maintained my precarious position on the NO FABRIC wagon. So nothing in. Here's the details:
Used this week = 0.15
Added this week = 0 yards
Used year to date = 47.5 yards
Added year to date = 356 yards
Net used for 2010 = (308.6) yards
With the 830 in the shop, I had to set up the 9 year old Bernina 153QE to finish the layer cake block. I've been using the 830 exclusively since March. It took me forever to get used to using the buttons to raise and lower the pressure foot and to remember to move to the right display screen to have access to the right stitches. I was a bit concerned that I'd have to fight to relearn the 153. No, it didn't take any time at all for me to get back into the groove with my old friend.
Besides getting the tree up today, finishing the center block for the Seeing Stars BOM is on the agenda. I doubt I get it done, but hope to get it started.
