Lovin the job and Linky #10

I am so loving my job, at Abigayles Quiltery!  I have spent the last 3 days learning the machines, and am in the process of assembling my samples so that I can teach new machine owners and prospective ones how amazing all the features are.  Pictured here is the top of the line, retailing around $13,000.  Yes, I am not kidding, though it is on sale for $9,999.  It is an amazing computer and it is so intuitive!  Here is a pic as I am creating an embroidery design with the shop's name for my tote bag.  I will share pics of the tote, after it is finished, I left it at the shop today, as I want to sew it onto the side as a pocket. (See the amazing quilt, behind the machine, it is Friends Garden? with lots of embroidery and applique, one of the many classes teaching techniques)

Check out all the "feet", that allow you to do so many different things!  I have been working my way through them all and it is amazing how simple it is to change them, as the computer reads which you have put on and then gives you a readout of available options. Of course it is self threading, cuts and lifts at the end of a sequence.  You can see the amazing embroidery options, one is on the screen above, I am attaching it on the side of a tote.

Meanwhile, I want to thank the bloggers who posted their linky's last Sunday, don't you think these are cute!  From the Victorian Rabbit, these wonderful scrubbers!

And from Something Created Every Day, this great mixed media craft for Father's Day!

Love your links ladies, keep visiting each week, I try to have the code up by mid week, closing the day after Sunday. Please post a link this week of an idea that reminds you of summer! Grab my button on the side bar, add yourself as a follower if you aren't already that is, and comment if possible.  Thats it, I hope to have a giveaway again soon.  Keep visiting, and have a great week!

Hmmm, something I've sewn that reminds me of summer? I really haven't sewn that much but I want to sew a beach bag. By the time I do though, you'll have a whole different theme again... Oh well. :-) Sandra
