Has it really been that long since I updated here? My only excuse is that life has been so very very busy. I have been sewing. Nothing major, just little things here and there. I do have several bolts of material and a pattern laying here to make jackets for a local ballet company's preformance of the Nutcracker. It started out 12 jackets and now they want 16. Lessons are taking up a big part of our time lately. That and home renovations and winter preparations. We have been harvesting the ends of the garden and I have been putting up the produce from it. I have made lots of salsa. The General began the task of getting our windows ready for winter. We haven't done this in a few years, so it needs it. He pulled two of the windows out and sanded them, re-glazed them, and then gave them a new coat of paint. We only have 8 more to go!

This is my new acquisition. For national sewing month my local sewing shop had sales each week. I purchased this one week. This lovely piece of equipment is a ruffler. I have tested it and it really works!

Sew Long for Now!

Isn't that ruffler just an amazing invention? I really like mine, but haven't used it much recently. My Bernina store is having a sale this weekend and I've been drooling over the accessory book to see what I might get. :o)

Fun, fun luxuries. :o)

Oh, lucky you. I want a ruffler but would have to go to Forrest to buy it. The good part about reading your post is that you said it works!!! That is good.
