Three's Company

During the last few weeks it's been Monroe, myself and Bernina who have been staying busy here at home. The one down part to having a winter baby in a cold area is that you have to spend a lot of time indoors. Let me tell you a bit about the Bernina I inherited. It was built in 1961 and was my Grandma Williams'. She has upgraded a few times since she purchased her Bernina and no longer wanted it. When I saw it, I told her that Bernina would have a safe home with me. I took her in to get tuned and $50 later she's running as good as new.

The quilt I had mentioned earlier was my first big project that I used the Bernina on, and it was amazing. Although she's about 30 pounds (and she is as Lisie says about bigger women, 'large and practical') she worked wonders and I sewed this together in less than 6 hours.

Although the purpose of this quilt was to get Monroe to enjoy tummy time more, it didn't do the trick when I tried it out today. Even with a mirror, crunchy leaves and pom poms. Oh well, at least it's pretty! We'll keep working on it.


  1. Wow! That quilt looks amazing, your baby is ADORABLE and what an awe inspiring machine. I just remembered how I wanted to start a sewing blog, then I did but I haven't done much posting. You inspire me, maybe I'll pick it up again.

  2. I guess there isn't room for the daddy! :(
