Misc. and Bernina 830 Record

After church my DH was up to making a grocery store run for a few things and he also picked up these pretty flowers.

I'm not a good flower arranger, but I did like how this bloom stands a bit above the rest.

Clearance was hard to resist.  I had wanted one of the bowls for keeping rolls warm for several years and this one is very pretty.  I'm wondering though, when this has been in the oven and is keeping the rolls warm, passing the bread could be a problem.  I guess we'll need some good potholders. 

I gave this to my daughter about 25 years ago when I got my Bernina 1130 and I recently asked for it back.  It wasn't being used and needed some repairs.  It was only straight stitching and now it's back to making all its stitches.  When my daughter sews she comes to my house anyway, so now I have a pair of Berninas.  Unfortunately, the cord is still waiting to be repaired or replaced so I haven't been able to try it out. 

Pretty stitches, I can't wait to do some bonding.

Yesterday my DD was over and she finished sewing this little quilt top for her stepdaughter and then she and I basted it.  This morning I cleaned up my Juki and started quilting it.  I'm still getting used to my new table, but I think I'm going to like it a lot.  My granddaughter's birthday party is next weekend so I am putting this to the first of the line in case my daughter wants to include it in her birthday gifts.  Then on to the red, white and blues.
