UPGRADE! September 19, 2009

Here’s my old machine:

oldbrotherIt 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:

brotherShe 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!
