Here’s my old machine:
It is nothing special. Just a cheapy from Wal-mart that has been getting the job done. I was actually able to purchase a walking foot and free motion foot for it and I have been quilting on it quite a bit. The table topper below was quilted on this machine. Unfortunately, she just hasn’t been able to stand up to the abuse that is my caffeine-fueled late-night marathons. After weeks of trying to work with her iffy motor, I have gotten an upgrade. Woot! Okay, maybe not gotten. But I am going to get. I purchased a floor model that will be ready for me Friday.
And yes, I sold my elliptical to get it. Honestly, what is more important? Exercise or sewing? I think we have our answer.
Here she is:
She isn’t the fanciest girl on the block, but she’s a big upgrade for me! From now until Friday I can dream of all the endless hours I will spend playing with decorative stitches that I will hardly ever use! LOL And did I mention the thread cutter? Or the quilting table that will also double as a nice place to rest my weary head after a long night? I’m in love!
