Ally, yes, I have a LAQ..almost a year, Bernina Q24. 

Comment by B J Elder/WA on Wednesday

Ally, I have an old Bernina Record... many years older than your 'new' one. I use it for the threadpainting - a good workhorse machine.

Sharon sorry to hear you haven't been well and that you have to move. Especially at this time when moving around from State to State must be difficult.

Brenda love art pieces love the flower and bee especially, both pieces are beautiful.

Gwen you are busy with your quilting, did you get a LAQ machine?

I just got myself an old 1970 Bernina 830 Record so I am finding my way around that as it is different to my Janome and I didn't get a manual though someone told me I can download one, so must look into it. One of the things I like about Berninas is the foot is very easy to detach quickly. This machine came with lots of feet and while at a Bernina store I was surprised how expensive each foot was so I really got a good deal Will have to  take a photo of it to show.

I was talking to BB the other night and they are back in lock down in Victoria Melbourne. Aust. and also curfew I think she said from 8pm to 5 am and only one person going out from household for one hour a day. I think I got that right. She was showing me videos of baby Abigail, she is so alert looking around and wide eyed. feel for Barb I am sure she is wanting to have a cuddle with her, we went through similar times with our twins.  Our family just went back to HK and we were not able to see them at airport only to go in if you have a boarding pass. So last we saw was last week of Jan and probably won't be seeing until this time next summer all being well with the situation.

I did find it hard during lockdown during March/Apr and seemed to loose my mojo but it has come back now, just couldn't get creative.

I have a couple of orders for thread paintings and tonight have to contact a person who bought a thread painting a few years back and wants to commission me to do another of Anna Maria Island, seascape.

Oh Brenda love your art quilt. I love bees. That's amazing stitching. 

Sharon your butterfly is beautiful. 

Comment by Cindy on Monday

Ooo, wonderful works being shared. Such fun, cheerful pieces. 

My mojo is beginning to peek out a bit. Have done a bit of cross stitch and collecting supplies for things I want to make. The more my guys get done on my she shed, the more I want to start creating. The roof is on, next weekend they will do the siding. But it may be on hold after that for a bit as my heat pump went out today. That will come first. Knew it was having problems, but rather now than in the cold of winter.

Wow amazing work,  Brenda. Too cold here in Canberra to sit too long but I can dream.

This is a flamingo for my oldest niece...just finished the quilting.

Sharon, I love your new art pieces.  Sorry to hear about your troubles.  I hope your move goes smooth.  BJ, your new place is looking good! Overlooking a body of water sounds fantastic!  Hi Royce! After not sewing a stitch for almost 4 months (got caught up playing with my paints) I finally made it back to my studio.  Christmas gifts have started.  Here is No. 1. This is thread couching on the longarm and a thread painted bumble bee.

I've been back in my sewing room which is great. It's been too long.

I spent hours reorganizing my fabric closet this week. Last time the boyfriend was over we started the gallery wall in the sewing room. It will cover 2 walls eventually. I got a ceiling fan which my brother in law will put up when he gets a min. Everything that will be on these walls will either be hand done or a print I've purchased from an artist. 

BJ that is one great view you will have. 

Sharon hope your move goes well. Moving can be a stressful time.
