Chatter / Re: The Summer Gazebo (S. Hemis. The Winter Fireside)

............we cannot eat on the porch. Cats! They want the food.

Diane,do your cats jump on tables or kitchen counters ?

Our cats never did that.  :grinning:
We had cats for decades,once a black and a white cat at the same time. Each cat had a different character.Cats like to be independent,that's why I love cats. ;D
None of our cats were allowed on tables or counters. Only one cat begged for food - when I was eating radishes or pickles.
Weird ?  ???   Yes !  ;D

It's a long weekend,Monday is a holiday. People took extra days off work,the highway and freeway East were clogged with traffic for the last two days. It seems everyone left our area. Years ago when we lived in the city we stayed home on long weekends instead of camping at lakes or rivers.It was quiet in the neighborhood as if we were the only people home and enjoying our backyard.

Agrifair takes place at an exhibition park in a neighboring city this weekend. I would enjoy watching Richard's racing pigs and ducks.  :grinning:

Here's a description of it:

I'm a big fan of specialized feet. They are available for all brands of machines. Yeah, they are expensive (especially for Berninas!) but I think they make a difference. For instance, the topstitching foot has a little groove in the back so that the fabric can still glide through the presser foot, despite the thicker thread, and not jam.

One more thing-I often adjust the pressor foot pressure and/ or thread tension. I always have to get out my manual, I can never remember which way is for denim and which way is for fine silk, but that helps, too.
Bessiecrocker, you always come up with the best ideas and tips. Thanks for this one (in addition to all the others)!  :huggle:

Tammy, I sent you a PM.

Yay! Congrats, Tammy.

If you shop Marcy's fabric, you will know she had these neat wool fabric panels that you cut out to make instant vests or ruanas. I bought one believing my wool allergy had gone away. Unfortunately, I was wrong.  :'(  So here it is, originally $100 and I'm selling it for $50.00 and this price includes shipping. I think Marcy still has a few of these on her website if you want more information. It looks like boiled wool, but is not. It is wool on a nylon (?) backing and was a solid panel that you cut out and wear, no finishing. This one is cut out and ready to go.
ETA: Link to Marcy's last few panels

Laurie, is it the Tin Lizzie, the Artistic, or another one. I'm looking at them on the internet to see what you got. No, not getting one, just want to see what you get. Some of the pictures appear to have this really neat lamp on it. I want it, not the machine, just that lamp. LOL

I don't have a Bernina, but I'm very curious about your jeans foot. What are its special features?
