Again, I would like to welcome all the new followers of The Inbox Jaunt.  We have been joined by many new followers from Brazil–we are excited to have you here.  We also found out that Bernina USA posted The Anchor Quilt on their Facebook page. Welcome to all of you who found us through Bernina…We will be discussing Bernina and sewing machine adjustments for perfect tension in the days and weeks ahead… If you haven’t read it, you might like to review Seven Steps to Free Motion Quilting HERE  and My Secret Weapon HERE.  Around Christmas, I posted many of my favorite sewing notions in: Ten Stocking Stuffers for Quilters HERE.

Today, I plan to go for a long walk and work on some obedience training with my two Australian shepherds, Ruby and Roxie.  They will do ANYTHING for a Pupperoni!  They will do almost anything for any treat--sounds a bit like my teenage son–Hmmm…

It is a gorgeous day here in Minnesota, so I am ditching my computer and my sewing machine…

Wishing you all a lovely day,

Welcome!  Welcome! Welcome!  We have many new followers today and we are so glad you have joined us!  It seems you have found The Inbox Jaunt through Facebook and Tumblr–though it’s not clear where on Facebook our link was posted?   In any case, we’re glad you are here.  Please let  me know if you have any questions along the way…

Today is brought to you by the letter “L”…

I found this video by Joanne Sharpe recently.  Artful Lettering:  Tools and Techniques for Discovering Your Style

Of course, my style involves stitching…free motion quilting on my Bernina…(820 or 150)

The gist of the video is teaching you to use Your Style and Your Handwriting to develop a few fonts.  It barely mentions calligraphy words like “ascender” and “descender”.

I spent a few hours playing with letters…Now I have a million more ideas swirling in my head…

So many ideas…sew little time!
