I used my leather roller foot for the first time on my Bernina. Interestingly the cutter did not work when I had the roller foot selected on my Bernina screen. I changed the selection on the Bernina to foot #24 without actually changing the foot and the cutter worked. Don't know if I should have done that or not but it served my purpose. The roller foot worked so well. The visibility was fabulous. When I got to some parts of my drawing that were really wiggly I sometimes just took the leather foot off and worked without a foot attached and sometimes if the section was longer I attached the #24 foot. What fun to use new tools!!!! I would have thought that the golden threads paper would have acted like a stabilizer for the stitches. Not so much. Does it have to be on the bottom to work as a stabilizer??? Hmmmmmm. I could have used Ricky Tims Stable Stuff but I would have had to use a light box for the drawings. I wanted to use the Golden Threads product because I could see the stitching of the applique through the paper and knew where to draw.
The Vanish Lite is easily visible on all of the blue background except for the very lightest blue. When I get to the quilting, my plan is to stitch around the applique first before I stitch on top of the vanish lite stitching. My top is wrinkled so I wanted to iron it before I sandwiched it but I did not know if I could iron vanish lite. I called Superior Threads. The customer service is so great. The representative did not know the answer so she went to find out. She said that they did not know and to try it on a sample with a press cloth to see what happens. I have yet to do that.
Today I learned to add links and pictures to my posts. I have not done any CSS for quite a while. I will do that one of these days. Happy blogging. M
