Evening in the Country...
...a gorgeous view of the WV mountains I get to enjoy everyday. Also the place Bri proposed earlier this year! [Not taken on that day.]

It's been a nice weekend

I picked mom up this morning and she brought this along with her:

It has been a breeze to work with! And I was able to fix my knit dress within seconds! I still used the four colors shown above on the black and white jersey but the stitches are so perfect, so gorgeous.

You can see the different colored loopers in green and blue. The top stitches are in yellow and red. The machine even comes with an elastic foot and blind hem foot. For an easy rolled hem, there is a special plate to use with either 2 threads, 3 threads, or 4 threads. The cleanliest of all the choices is 2-thread...who cares!! THIS MACHINE IS GREAT! I love how it makes a clean cut and the stitches go straight to the edge. The picture above is actually a side seam on the jersey dress. I made a small hole during some reconstruction techniques and am waiting for glue to dry before I finish it.

I guess I could always go finish my skirt or begin steaming my grosgrain ribbon in place.

I ordered three colors of stretch lace from Denver Fabrics. I am waiting for an orange, a purple and a turquoise. I can't wait to see the different things I can do with this machine. I would like to make corsets and other fun lingerie.

Of course there is always the hats and purses and gloves.

and dresses...
