A friend from Switzerland Comes to Stay

Yesterday, a litle old lady from Switzerland came to visit. 

She`ll be with us for the next week or so.

She`s smallish but very well built. 

In fact, when we collected her, I had to carry her to the car and she weighed a tonne.

Sturdy you might call her.

While she`s a little jaundiced looking...what she lacks in looks and youthfulness, she makes up in experience.   

She`ll fit in well...she loves all things sewing.

She`s very very welcome.

Something to sew with! That is how you are getting the quilt top done. Enjoy. How nice that someone could let you have her come for a visit.

Love the colour! I'm really a Pfaff girl myself, but finally weakened and after 20 years bought myself a new Bernina yesterday!! (One that has a big enough arm to make machine quilting a pleasurable occupation!!)

thought of chubby old lady (Miss Marpleish) came to mind before the real old lady popped up on screen! Have fun!

I haven't used a sewing machine in 30 years! I love the first close-up shot.
