This is what I found inside the foot controller! You might not be able to tell from the picture, but the tip of this feather is the prettiest shade of light blue. She must have owned a parakeet at one time, huh?
And I was enabled by another great friend to buy the buttonholer you see attached to my 222k. This is a special buttonholer that was only marketed in the UK and Australia. So, I bought this one from the UK a few weeks ago and cleaned it up and tried it out. It makes great buttonholes and WITHOUT the cams. You simply dial the size you want. Besides the nice buttonholes, it simply looks great on my featherweight.
And at my quilting club meeting last Wednesday night, I won the drawing for the cutest pink fat quarter set. Since they're really not my colors, I immediately thought of a girlfriend and how they are perfect colors for her. So, if she's reading my blog (which I think she does), then she already knows what she's getting for her birthday in August. If she IS reading this and wants it sooner than August, she'll have to tell me and I could be persuaded to get it to her before then.
I added bling, as you can see, to the purse. My g/f is all about pink and bling. Notice the fabric covered button. That was a first for me, too.
Well, I promised to blog more often and so far it's not happening, is it? Oh well. Life simply gets in the way. But these are a few of my latest projects.
Oh, and my post wouldn't be complete without (again-because I already called her) wishing my beautiful daughter, Adrian, a Happy 23rd Birthday. Love you Adrian!
