Here it is...
Bernina Aurora 440QE
I didn't shop around, but I did go online and check out the reviews, it got great reviews. It sews like a dream! (Now I know how men feel about cars.) It's quiet and it threads itself...WOW! Since I'm getting old and my eyes get tired quick...haha! It does a whole lot more but I have not played with all the features, embroider, quilting, button holes, my old sewing machine didn't do this much so I'm quite amazed. The metal stick coming out of the machine towards the table is a hands free lever to lift the presser foot, you hit it with your knee. I thought I wouldn't use it until I tried it...love it! So although I have not had a chance to try all the features I give it a thumps up.
The pin cushion in the front is the pattern I had bought at the quilt show. Yes, I finished a project! It's a pin cushion and trash bag in one. I used some Alexander Henry fabric I got at JoAnn's. One of my favorite fabric designers and places to shop.This calendar is in the kitchen this was a Christmas gift for Remington from his aunt Kelli. Yes it's about airplanes, fighter jets.
This calendar, we have not put up yet, is Ramsey's Christmas present from his aunt Kelli. More fighter jets... This one will go in the boys room was I am done moving their furniture around.
This one is my own artwork. I started doing these last year when I was home on maternity leave and I came across this artist on flickr. I love to draw (I know you do too Karla) so I used her idea and started drawing one a month. This is my sketch pad, Christine uses a larger piece of paper.
This Astronomical Calendar I have been buying for years, you might remember one I had at home. I don't use this to plan events like a planner but it's got daily information about astronomy. I used to buy them at Borders but the have stopped carrying them now I buy them from the author's website. I love the artwork on the covers. This one has the Mayan pyramids at Palenque, Mexico.
This is January's page, there is a lot of information and it's nice to know when an eclipse or meteor shower is going to happen. January 30th will be a full moon.
Karla, you said you didn't have a calendar although I will not part with any of mine, I will send a new one in the mail.
