Today our boss is taking us to the new TOCA by Tom Brodi restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Toronto. We have the private dining room reserved and I cannot wait! I’m bringing my camera to show you the kitchen. I’ve been woking on this project for 3+ years, we’re still working on the condos but alas, the hotel is finally open!
Yesterday I touched on the sound a sewing machine makes and how much I enjoy listening to it. But not all machines and not all the time. When my Brother HE-240 is hammering out an embroidery design, although it’s not deafening, it can be irritating. I also don’t like the sound of Mike Maldonado’s industrial machine in this video.
But I LOVE the sound of this Elna TX Electronic, there’s such a lovely, low zoom to it, it sounds as though it has power behind it without being obnoxious. My Sapphire can emit a high pitched squeal when I’ve been making it work hard, the dealers call it a “whistle”, don’t be fooled.
Sadly, only one person voted in my poll yesterday on dress forms and I’m very disheartened. Either there are very few people who own dress forms, or people didn’t want to vote? It’s going to boil down to what I can get in the area within budget. So I’m going to post my poll again, please, if you have a dress form, help me out and let me know what brand you’d recommend or leave me a comment.
TDF worked from home yesterday and got all our shopping done which means we have the entire weekend to relax. Here in Canada, Monday is “Family Day” because we just don’t have enough damn holidays! YAY for Family Day!!
