No.35...I have been waiting for you!

I love this little guy...after taking a very looooong time to do an invisible zipper with an ordinary zipper foot, I gave in and bought this handsome fellow whilst in Newcastle yesterday. Worth EVERY cent! I put the invisible zip in this chocolate spotted skirt today in minutes...amazing! Skirt looks great & I am not frazzled from the zip...yay! Thankyou Bernina! More skirts coming up...Barcelona skirts are so easy.
What is your favourite needlework tool?

It is years since I've put in an invisible zip, but have a pattern here waiting to be made that uses one. I'll have to see if Janome makes a special foot. I've only ever used Mum's Elna foot on my old machine. I love your skirt fabric.
