A Fun Day with Friends and

Thursday, December 15th, 2005

…I am in love! I have been such a good girl this year that I gave myself an early Christmas present. (Update: Typepad went missing for a while, but is back, so I am trying to get yesterday’s post on line.)


Meet my new studio pal – a Janome 6600. She is quite a work horse and I find free motion quilting on this machine to be a dream!! I have ordered an insert for my Horn table so that she can rest comfortably while we work. Both of my other machines have automatic threaders – but – this one actually works. I love the bobbin winder, too. It has a built in walking foot which is pretty cool, too. Bernie is in the hospital so she does not know about Jan who has replaced her. Hope they can get along when Bernie comes home.

Today my bestest friends and I went to Larkspur in Marin county and made many shopkeepers very happy. Then we had lunch at the Lark Creek Inn. My daughter Lisa joined us for our outing. We enjoyed watching her find great bargains at a thrift store. We had a delish lunch and shopped til we dropped. Nothing better than a good day with quilty friends!

Tomorrow is my last day to work at the Surface Design office. I will continue to be the web administrator because I can do that from Portland. So I am starting the transitioning to less stuff to do away from home and more time in the studio.
