I've just finished Block 2 of the Down in the Garden BOM. Lost of work in each block, easily a month's worth of embroidery, but they look so lovely once they're done. This is going to be a really special quilt.
On the new sewing machine front, I've got lots of 'ordinary' sewing that I want to catch up with and then I can devote some time to playing with all of its features, and to taking up the free lessons. But even for ordinary sewing, it sews like a dream, quiet, even stitches, good natured when it comes to bulky seams.
You should head on over the the In Stitches blog (http://the-quilt-shoppe.blogspot.com/) where they're having a Spring Fever Bingo competition, with some wonderful prizes. I'd show the logo here, only I can't seem to get it to upload to Blogger.
