Well this is my 1st vacation in a long time. I am so glad to get away to the beach. OK, well maybe not a complete vacation. I went to go to a Embroidery convention to learn so new techniques and new products for Razberry threads.
Our new machine is in and I have to learn all the new technology. I have also a learning class to go to on Monday. She has been training for melco machines for over 16years. I am excited about that.
Since I am here in sunny Florida I may as well take in some sun in my down time. I am not going to complain about that at all.
The convention had a lot of great ideas on applique. I bought the glitter vinyl to put on the shirts in beautiful colors. I got the most beautiful blue for Elsa’s dress I cant wait to use it. It is alway exciting to learn new thing. I am glad I went there is another convention in Atlanta, Ga which is supposed to be larger than this one. I think I may go to that also in Febuary.
It is nice to come to Florida also because my daughter and her husband live here so I get to visit family. I was raised here in New Smryna Beach, Fla. My grandparents lived here so I was here all the time I went to college here at Daytona Beach. So when I come here it is like coming home.
I love all the shops and stores on the beach side. Some day when I retire I want to move back and maybe open a little shop here on the beach side. I would love that. This place has grown up since I was little.
I beach side has changed so much. I remember when it was nothing and forest and a few buildings or really houses that have now converted to stores.
Of course since I have some spare time I had to go look at fabric. I found a few great pcs to use for applique on the embroidery machine in Razberry threads.
I can’t help my self. It is a addiction and the love of color and texture. So I came home with a few great pieces of fabric. Since I do the Backyard feathered friends line I got a few pieces of great fall fabric for the dresses I make. I can’t wait to go home and sew. Whoa did I say that? I really did need a break from the everyday routine. Even though I do miss being at my sewing machine.
