I bought a new sewing machine! I’ve been dreaming of a fancier second machine for a while now. There are some amazing machines out there, most are beyond my budget and desire to pay cash. I am really pleased with the machine I was able to get! It actually isn’t the one I was looking at (it’s the same brand) but I was in the right place at the right time for an excellent deal on this one which actually has a few features the other didn’t!
I’m practicing free motion quilting (I have a long way to go) but luckily I have lots of unfinished quilt tops to practice on. I’ve even quilted my finger! It’s a painful way to learn how powerful your sewing machine is! I also made a new little pillow that I love!
It will be wonderful to be able to work on several projects at the same time … When I’m in the middle of a large batch of something I sometimes have to shift gears for a special order and it’s not always easy to do so. Now I can keep things set up on the big machine and zip the other up on my new one!
I have sooo many sewing plans swirling in my head!
PS – I bought my new machine at Sew-Vac of Boulder
PPS – photo of Aurifil thread is strictly gratuitous, I’m sorry these pictures are so grey, it was a rainy week when I took these, we could use a week like that now!!
