On Saturday, Heather and I convinced Amy it was time to move up to a better sewing machine. Three hours later we walk out with the Husqvarna Sapphire 835. Oh I want one. My current machine is a Janome and I have never warmed up to this machine. I kept thinking it was a learning curve moving from a Singer to the Janome but 5 years later....I am just not feeling it with the Janome. But I am sidetracked here....more on my machine dilemma in an upcoming post. We rounded out the day with a trip to an Indian Restaurant. WOW! Mine was supposed to be mild. Hot hot HOT. But good. Sunday we went to Old Sturbridge Village - what a nice way to spend the day. Here's my girls......had to take a few since they were not acting serious.
These lovelies were in with the quilting section.
Another Massachusetts treasure and what did I find......in the building with the fire arms display but an excellent collection of needlework items. In addition, the artisans on site working in the blacksmith shop, the soap making barn, the tinsmith's were all so knowledgeable and professional. It was a very enjoyable day.
Such ashame I couldn't get better shots through the glass cases.
This one was awesome. Enlarged detail below.
Stitched family record rather than written in the family bible
One of the things that stood out that I liked about the 'village' was it
was not all manicured. Rather is looked authentic.
