I just love it...looks very countrish..or antiquishy or ... but looks cool.. I love also the satin stitch using the machine when doing applique's ..... I was once told by a super teacher, great LADY, (Jan H.) that you should just try to play with the stitches your machine has and not to be scared to...well.. it's fun,,, dont hesitate to try, the only thing you can do is have to rip it , rip it in turn you learn by the mistakes.... we had such a good time... chatting, quilting, sharing. etc.... woohoo...our group has such great ladies... one of which (Dot) is 89 years YOUNG.. she is a whoot.. great spirits, witty, saucy, intelligent, wise, and all around fun to be with.. also other's that were there was, Maxine, Pierette #1, Pierrette #2, Lily, Diane, Denise, Darlene, Julienne, Hugette, Barb, Joanne, Gail, Alice, Connie, Dot, Marj and myself...our leader M, she had a little prize,,, the winner was Pierrette#2, I was so nosey to see , I forgot to take a pic...ops..sorry, was so cute, a little xmas stocking with applique on it and a set of candles with tray all this in a pretty box,, shoot I was to slow LOL.. another win was last Saturday hubby and myself went to a little arts and craft thing here in our community and hubby won one of the door prize lol.. a beautiful xmas wreath..I'll be hanging that one for sure.... so for now...Ciao, Salute, Adios, Nighty nite, Bonsoirs mes amies.... oh,,, I will be posting this week a give a way..for my 200th post...so stay tune and see.......
