Bet you thought I'd forgotten to do my 365 project?! Well it's getting hard to think of more glass shots but still have a few ideas left... I've just not had a chance to upload for the last few days...

We drove down to Taunton last Saturday to collect it from Bredons as it was ready from being serviced... so the time had come to get all it's accessories together and list it on ebay. When F was playing with daddy sunday afternoon & while the light was still good I managed to take lots of pictures... although I realized the next day I'd forgotten to photograph a whole lot of assorted feet I had that don't fit in the standard tool box! Oh well :)
It took the best part of sunday evening to crop the photos, upload them to ebay and write the blurb about it. Who would have thought explaining what the bernina 1260QPE does and what mine has with it would take so long! Click here If you want to see my finished blurb.
I'm still having palpatations at the thought of it actually selling... there are no bids just yet but a few watchers. Unfortunately I really have no choice as since Finn took over what was our dining room and his old small room has become our new dining room our storage capabilities have been severly reduced. Those of you who know me know how much crafting and sewing stuff I have... in addition to the collection of machines and there is no way we can physically fit it all in the small room. Even if the Bernina 1260QPE sells I will still have my other Bernina (the Artista200E) with embroidery attachment & my Babylock eclipse overlocker so I can't really complain.
During the clear out I have recycled some old incomplete dressmaking patterns, given away my patchwork fabric stash, sent my unused non-feltable stashed yarns to a fellow Raveller in need in the USA with the postage paid by another Raveller as a gift.
Even with all this sorting and clearing I've been doing I've still got more to sort through.... but for this week I'll call it a halt & hope my special Bernina baby finds a loving good home.... sigh.

I have to admit I'm starting to find it difficult to think of more glass themed shots :) I have a few more ideas left and then I'l really be struggling!

Today was the first day I found loads of condensation on our windows when we opened the shutters.... looks like autumn is fast approaching :)
I'm a bit late posting this as I've been busy listing my beloved Bernina 1260QPE on ebay. I never guessed writing about what it can do & accessories included of would take so long!
I've also decided to sell some of my Bernina Artista design CD's... one of which is signed by the author/creator Louisa Meyer
I'm still having palpatations at the thought of them actually selling but It's all in a good cause as our little boy loves his larger bedroom and I just don't have the space to keep everything anymore!

I've just discovered the panoramic feature on the omnia. It's very clever... you take the 1st photograph and then slowly pan across left to right, the omnia then takes another 7 photos & joins them altogether. Took me a few goes to get the hang of it but whoo hoo I got it in the end! So here's my first panoramic....
Sweet filled glass globes.. just 20p a time..

My lucky dip theme for the next week is glass.. so I'm on the lookout for anything with glass. So while the sun is out nothing sparkles like crystal... except maybe diamonds but they're not glass :)
