Watch this space...

Today I put a deposit on a new sewing machine!!!!!!!!!!  I'm so excited!!!!!  The only pain is that I have to wait till the end of the month for it to arrive.... :(   Ohhhh well.... that gives me till the end of the month to plan some new projects....

I have been working on a new 3D machine embroidered landscape but have hit a few snags... one being that my current machine can't cope with the thickness of my work, and the second being perspective.  With this piece (it's the bridges from several months ago, you can read about it here and here) I have 2 angles of perspective to deal with rather than single perspective of the previous pieces so I have to look and think about it differently... it's all about problem solving and thinking outside the square.

BTW it's a Bernina 430.

I got a Bernina 430 QE a year ago, and I just love it!! Good for you! I think it's one of the best values with its' features, and it's so smooth and was easy for me to learn...well, not the "qe" part yet..that's the embroidery software, but the machine stitches and all of that...thanks for letting us comment!
