release the hounds!

Spent sufficient time driving myself crazy, so when I got home from running errands today, out came the Bernina.


It's so incredibly...heavy! And complicated. I'm having fun learning on my own (it's so similar to what we use at work that I have a leg up), and next weekend she&I will return to the quilt store to take a "mastery class." Yay!

And I would like to present...


the first ever thing I sewed on my new machine! Impressive, right? Hah! This is actually a part of a larger project, but I love the way the solid stripes look, so I may be revisiting this idea later.

I finished the quilt top this is a part of tonight, so pictures tomorrow! Plus, a peak at one of the first items for Wholly Craft!
