I'm now a Moda Maniac! Calico Station gives every Moda Maniac one of every charm pack that comes in. On my first night, Martha loaded me up! It was a fun time, everyone shared their projects and we heard about upcoming events. This was my first event at this LQS and I felt very welcomed. This LQS is the Bernina dealer I bought my machine from. I think it's as important for me to work on developing a relationship with them as it is for them to build one with me.
So I have to do something with these charm packs! First up, Gobble Gobble. It just screams fall. And in Florida, this is probably as close as I'm going to get to fall right now. It's still in the 90's here and the A/C is still running it's marathon. I picked up some extra pieces of yardage and will start working on this soon.
I haven't shown you my QuiltFest purchase. A thimble from TJ Lane! I have been sewing my binding bare fingered and needless to say, that had gotten a bit painful. My sewing finger has a bump on the side of it due to gripping my pencil in school. It's never gone away and my finger is a little crooked. Thankfully, there is a thimble made just for me!
Because of the way it's shaped the bump doesn't get in the way and it still stays on. It's silver, came with a polishing cloth and was then custom fit to my finger. Isn't it pretty?
The 4 of us spent a lovely day in Orlando yesterday with my parents celebrating their 50th anniversary. My brother flew in with his family and my sister was there as well. We had family photos taken, celebrated my nieces birthday and then went out to a Brazilian restaurant for dinner. It's rare that all of us are together at the same time so it was wonderful!
