Hi there - a warm welcome from me too.  :)

I can't speak for the 440, but I thought I'd tell you that I always swore I'd never have an embroidery module - and I've been sewing for more than 60 years! However, having bought my first Bernina (570QE) about 5 years ago, and then another (7-series, 720) 2 years ago, I took the plunge in January 2020 and bought the embroidery module for the 7-series ... and I absolutely love it.  0_0 I wouldn't be without it, although I don't use it as much as I'd like. So ... never say never. ;)

No sun here today, thank goodness - it was so hot yesterday I couldn't do very much, mainly because we still have to have all the windows closed to keep the cat in.

Have been for my second jab, and the temperature gauge in the car showed 16C. There's thick cloud cover so I couldn't even see the helicopters which were flying overhead when I got back - just heard the ridiculously loud droning noise they make. I thought a flying saucer was about to land! ;)

BIL rang earlier, complaining about the police surrounding the G7. He lives in Carbis Bay, and was held up for 3 1/2 hours, trying to get home from work, by a police cordon not allowing anyone through even though he has a so-called "residents permit". He was not happy. Another viewpoint of how things were managed. :S

Have taken the cat out for her twice-daily recce of the garden, and am now enjoying a nice cup of tea. Don't think I'll be doing too much else this evening.

Cold, wet and miserable here again today. I think it rained all night - there are slugs and snails aplenty!

I pity the bigwigs coming for the G7 - and anybody else arriving for a holiday - they won't see Cornwall at its best. There are helicopters flying over constantly. The police are out in their thousands, and roads are closed that seemingly have nothing to do with the Summit. -< And I live at least half an hour's drive away! Goodness knows what it's like for those living in Carbis Bay.

It's cold, wet and windy today - I had to have wellies and fleece on to take the cat out this morning. :(

No sun here.

@sewminds - I'm using a laptop. On my screen the search function is right at the very top, in the black bar, third from the left (Home, Help, Search etc etc)

Hope that helps. :)

I always hand stitch the back of my binding. I just don't like the look of machined binding, whether straight stitch or decorative. Imho hand stitching is so much neater and I find it quite therapeutic. :)
