It was a foggy, foggy night

Woke up this morning to fog, again.  It's been foggy around here for the past few days because of warmer temps than normal and a cold ground, I suppose.  I took this picture late this morning when it wasn't too foggy anymore.
 This was a close-up of the cattle in the field.  There is the roof of the barn behind them but you can't see it.  Those girls are starting to have their calves already.

Yesterday I took the Bernina in for a checkup.  Haven't done that in a while and decided it was time.  This morning I set up the Featherweight because I wanted to get the border on the scrappy quilt I started.
I really like this little guy.  I wish it could talk and tell me where it has been.  It's over 60 years old and it still hums along  nicely just like me.  I purchased it from a quilter who was moving and needed to downsize a bit.  I didn't think of asking her where she got it.  I did get the border on the quilt top.

 I am so pumped about using my scraps to make quilts.  I had just enough of the border material to apply 3" borders.  Woot-Woot.

Bernie won't be ready to pick up until next week so I should use the time wisely.  Let's see, I could sort all the laces.  I have wayyy too much of that.  And my sister informed me that when she moves she's giving me her stash of French lace that she has collected over the years.  I can't say no to that, although what I will do with it I haven't a clue.  I could cut one of my projects waiting for me in the project basket so it's ready to sew when Bernie comes home.  Or, I could work on cards.  I have everything spread out and ready to go.  Or, maybe doing disgusting jobs around the house?  NOT.

Nice featherweight. I'd love to have one, but, the cost of them nowadays. Eek! Great quilt!

Hi Diane!

Just saw your name on a comment you made on Bonnie Hunter's blog and wondered if it was you! The Featherweight came from a garage sale in Chanhassen and it was their grandmothers. :)
