Busy Days!

In my last post, I showed you my new Bernina 790 plus that my husband gave me for Christmas. 

He purchased it before Thanksgiving when Bernina was running a special deal giving you a Koala cabinet with your machine.  

It took about 7 weeks for the new cabinet to was finally delivered last Monday.

It is larger than my old Horn Quilters Dream cabinet, so I had to  do some rearranging in my sewing room for it.  

I moved my Handiquilter Sweet Sixteen Sit-Down machine out of my sewing room, and into the Grand's Room next door.  

Then I was able to move my big Ikea cubby unit down into the corner where my HQ machine had been sitting, so the new wider Koala cabinet would fit where my old Horn cabinet had been sitting- in the center of my sewing room.

So, while I have been waiting for the new cabinet to arrive, I've been busy making some new small sewing themed wall quilts to put up on the wall previously covered by the cubby unit.

I had several small plastic chest of drawers units full of notions and accessories that used to sit under the old cabinet, but the new one has built in drawers...

but I still needed more drawers, and a surface for my rotating caddy, so I found just what I was looking for at Ikea.

I like the big shallow drawers for all my machine feet and such.  It's just perfect!  And only took about 2 hours to assemble!  Yay!!

I also found two new task lights at Ikea for my cutting area to the left of my machine.

I also moved my TV and Blue Ray player over to the top of my bookcases, so they are easier to see while at my machine!!

I am sooooo LOVING my new sewing machine!  It's my fourth Bernina in the last 40 years...and the best one by far!!

My husband named this one for me!  MLB  - my last Bernina!!  LOL!!

We just recently had a lovely visit with our grandson Neal!!  Is he beautiful or what?  

And as smart as a whip...scary how he troubleshoots  and comes up with new ways to explore his world...

Yogi is still with us, though blind and deaf and a bit more frail. as time goes by!

When hubby is out of town, Yogi takes over his side of our bed!!

What are you up to lately?
