Welcome Home

Last week I went to my local Bernina dealer and picked this beautiful machine up:

Bernina 590E

I’ve spent some time with just the sewing unit of the 590 and can easily say that I’m in love… it sews so smoothly and I adore the thread cutting (and the hands free presser foot is nice too)! This week, I’m attaching the embroidery module and giving it a whirl. I am excited to see how easy positioning works (no templates needed, it uses pinpoint placement to match the marking) because it sounds AWESOME!

I have my next project cut out (and ready to sew on my new machine): a second Ellie & Mac Lucky Girl. This time around I’m using a solid, royal blue knit that I’ve been hoarding in my stash for ages. I loved the color, just never found the right project to make with it.
