HOW DO YOU DO IT?


See the photo there, well it's on my sidebar also. We have been asked to
make a nine patch block to help Illene and her daughter who are going through some extreme hardships...

Now, I have said in a previous post that my journey into the stitch in the ditch has not been quite successful. I have a Janome 6600 which states just put the attachment on, and away I go!
.
Well, it's not working for me. Yesterday after having a great lunch at Helen's ....Julia Child's French Onion Soup etc....so yummy by the way, that Helen who has an embroidery Janome says that she uses an attachment specifically for in the ditch and finds it better than the Janome instructions.
.
I think that she has the right idea! As I looked at my machine this morning however, I wonder if I can get the darn thing on as I have this "tongue" that is sticking out the back of the machine. I may give it a shot on my old machine...darn, I do love sewing at a sewing table as it's the right height.
.
I don't want to complicate matters, but what exactly are those tongues (for lack of a better word) for?
I may take a photo and post it just to get the right instructions.
.
Today is The Great American Race, Daytona 500, so I won't be sewing but will be glued to the tv to watch the race. My sweetie is already watching the pre pre race line up and the news of the day..

I noted while visiting Bejeweled Barb this morning that they've had a small hurricane go through Samoa. Her photos were really good! I was sure, except for a couple of freeky earthquakes that she was living on a paradise Island! Still is a lot better than the cold of Canada , but check her out today!
.
Happy Valentines to all of you loving bloggers.
My sweetie gave me my roses, but best of all a card that says it all about love...
