I just wanted to say good morning, then I'm off to the shower. I'll leave the blogging in Gail's capable hands. Thank you again for all of your good wishes. I've enjoyed reading them and your kind words make me warm all over. I am so much better compared to last week at this time. By next week, I'll be ready for Dancing With The Stars!
Lynn here again. One of you asked about what thread and settings I use on my machine when I machine applique. I use a Mettler 50 weight thread. On my Bernina I use a number #6 embroidery foot and select stitch #25. The needle position is 4.5. Stitch length 2.5. Stitch width 1 tick below 3. The needle is in the down position. I also thread my bobbin hook. Not all machines have a bobbin hook. It does change the tension on the bobbin thread and helps to create a nice even stitch.
