Husqavarna question...

So a month ago I bought a husqavarna Rose from a friend and everything was great till I wanted to stipple...
Now I am stippling for the first time so my skill level in nil, but it was going well and then it was skipping or doing these eyelash curves. Not nice.
So I pop into my neighborhood quilt store and chat up the repairman... he said Husqavarnas aren't made to stipple because of the drop in bobbins... ???
Has anyone out there had problems doing the same? Should I get another machine?

Kaffe Blue

Ah Kaffe, how I love his fabric! Every pattern, every color. And to my delight my little neighborhood quilt store in now carrying a selection. The shop owner thought I was nuts dancing around exclaiming my love for Kaffe... lol.

I started taking his books out of library, drooling over it all. I had to buy them, have them around. Gotta get me some Kaffe...

So I bought some blue... wonky block, splashed with color twin size. This was made for my 10 year old niece who is crazy for blue. Hope she likes it as much as I had fun making it!

Where has the time gone...

Well its been a busy time... Hubby and I went to Vegas for a quick getaway, school finished for Jack ( on to grd 5, yay), working to get all my clients ready for summer ( did I mention I'm a hairdresser by profession?) and I can't seem to pry myself away for the sewing room... The summer has gotten off to a fantastic start but I have not been puttering in the garden no no no I prefer to be in my sewing room slicing and dice and creating. I'm crazy! Just have to take a few pictures of the works... would love your opinion!
