The Artistic Janome has been called a workhorse. It is working well really. I just wish it had changeable feet like a round solid one to make ruler work easier. One good thing is that the price is sooo much less than others (especially here in Canada),

I know what you mean about getting bored with one thing.  That is one of the reasons it took 3 yrs to do.  I bought half of the patterns at a sale for $2@ then had to order the rest at $10@  I did the first block then put it away for summer.  I only worked on the blocks during the winter and the one of deer was too dark and I ended up redoing it.  Got to the last 3 blocks this year and then had to work up courage to quilt it, but after I started it was easier than I thought.  Just took lots of energy and concentration.  Good Luck with the beach, when you are done maybe we could swap patterns.

By the look of your beautiful quilts, you will have no problem doing the Beach Walk.  One block will have you wanting to finish it.  Did you buy just the patterns or a kit?  I had lots of fun picking all of my materials and used it as an excuse to buy more of course.

Hi Patricia,

I see you are just a few blocks down from me! I also was talked into moving to the Eastern Shore, just a few short years ago. Glad too meet you I was begining to wonder if there were any quilters on the Eastern Shore. Looks like your busy, keep quilting.

How'd you do that? Unfortunately, now it's top side down. The applique  belongs on he top of the quilt. The picture is not a good one. I couldn't stand where I needed to in order to get a full front view. Some is better than none. Thanks for the help.

Hi Patricia, ooo I love your page color! Anyway..I just got an Artista 730. It may be an older model although it's brand new...I've been playing with it for 2 weeks now.. Quilted a quilt, did a lot of piecing and so far so good. I am going to Bernina class in May...can't wait! You should definitely name your machines...I have featherweights named Marie and Betsy...LOL. (Marie for my great grandma which was hers!). I should name this one Zim...cause I bought it from mr. Zimmerman!

Pat:  I've given up on my bread maker.  The loaf is always to dense and heavy.  I love the breads you dip like at olive garden.  This bread has that chewing, bite and pul,l crust and the inside is soft and a little spungie.  Now there's a word for you.  This recipe says you have to use unbleached all purpose flour not sifted.  I'm into it for two loaves and both are and were yummy.

Oh yes, Pat, I do sew in there.  I just cleaned it up for the pictures!

Pat:  I used the French Bread recipe from Martha Stewart.com.  and followed these instructions....http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/2009/03/11/baking-bread-in-a-dutch-oven.  Not hard just time comsuming.  I wish the bread were more airy now that I've cut into it...I'm going to look for another recipe.  Will let you know what I find.
