All Aboard!!!!

I have the first part of the Train done . I am pleased with it . Now I need to do the stitching all around the train . This part is called machine applique.
Hubby did the cooking today so I can play with the fabrics and have fun.
Thought I would should you some stuff from my Sewing Room .

This is my Bernina 440 QE . Got her about 3 years ago . I love this machine !!!

It has the Stitch Regulator on it with a quilting walking foot . It quilts like a dream.

Some day I would like to get a Horn sewing table to put her in but for now this folding table from Sams will have to do .LOL!!

Take a look at my design wall. Not a whole lot there but I do use it a lot when I am sewing block and want to see what they look like at a distance . Really all it is is a table cloth with a flannel backing from a dollar store tacked to the wall and it holds your blocks in place .
Simply press your block against the design board/table cloth and the flannel backing holds it with No tacking !! Nice
More to come soon!!!
