A New Beginning: A New Year

‘Rarely Rarely comest thou, O spirit  delight ! …

Thou art love and life! Oh come,

Make once more my heart thy home.’
Thus wrote Percy Bysshe Shelley when he saw the ‘spirit of delight’ fleeting away from him. As I herald the New Year of 2017 and say a  warm goodbye to 2016, I herald a sanguine morning for one and all, especially my fellow Bernina users.
2016 marked my introduction to the world of Bernina and I brought home the wonderful Bernina 550 QE, a true Quilters Edition and I haven’t been able to keep my hands off him…ha ha  Quilters know what I mean. It has been my perfect companion as I make my quilts and other sewing goodies.

Cupcake Quilt

Here is a picture of the cupcake quilt I made with my Bernina, perfect for FMQ…made even my novice hands produce good looking FMQ.
Cupcake Quilt FMQ


It runs like knife on butter so lets say I just got addicted too soon 🙂  started something called #sewsomethingeveryday . Some days I just sew a bit, some days  a block and some days  just test running  on selected project fabric but I make it a point to sew a bit everyday!
This is my first post on the Bernina blog 🙂 I plan to write a few more through the year  narrating my journey with my wonderful 550QE!
Happy New Year and #sewsomethingeveryday
