My Bernina

For everyone who wanted to know, I got the Bernina Activa 220. I really like it alot. I'm a fan of the need stop up/down option instead of having to do it manually. I'm hoping that I will have my class on all of it's features soon. I tired to figure out how to do the monogram letters on my own, but I couldn't figure out from the manual how to make them bigger.

Just because I like posting pictures on my blog here is a picture that didn't make the cut on my previous post.

Bentley likes to "closely supervise" my work. This is a picture of him laying on my fabric while I was trying to cut it. I lost count of how many times I had to scoot him out of the way so that he didn't get a hair cut or a straight pin in his tail.

My New Sewing Machine & First Completed Project

A couple of weeks before my birthday Bernina had a good sale on their sewing machines, so I bought myself an early birthday present. It stayed in the box for 3 or 4 weeks before I had time to get it out and enjoy it. Here's my first completed project using my new sewing machine.
This is a diaper bag that I made for the Assistant Manager that I had at Bank of America. The pattern that I used was for a purse the size of the patterned fabric at the bottom and I added the solid black on top to extend it into a larger bag.
I added 5 pockets to the inside. Two large ones and three smaller ones.This is the matching make-up looking bag that I made for the Mommy-to-be.

The Music Builds Concert

For my birthday, Josh got us tickets to the Music Builds Tour this past Sunday when it came through Oklahoma City. The concert benefits Habitat for Humanity and features Jars of Clay, Switchfoot, & Third Day. Of the three I enjoyed Third Day's performance the most. I know you can't really see anything from these pictures because they're so little, but I'll pretend that you can. : )

Jars of Clay


The crowd...lots of people were there.

Josh's Crap Box Is No More

Big thanks to God, he took care of my hubby this weekend while I was away (Thanks again God I was not at the track to witness his wreck). Josh's car ran into the wall Saturday night while he was drag racing at the track in Tulsa. He is very blessed to have walked away with only a sore neck and foot after having hit the concrete retaining wall going approximately 115 to 120 mph. Here are some pictures of what is left of his car...
