See? I told you I'd be back with a positive post. LOL Actually, today has been a good day so far. For those that have been following me for awhile, you know I've had that QBot that goes on my long arm that's been looking at me and making me feel guilty because I never use it. Well NO MORE! I went down to the quilt shop today and traded that baby in. Yep, I took a loss on what I paid for it, but who cares. It's not doing me any good just sitting there. Soooo I got another machine. That would make 3 now. But before you get your undies in a figure 8, it really will be a help to me.
I got the Viking Sapphire (very hard for me to do - I'm a Bernina girl all the way but they don't sell Bernina's), but the cool thing about it is that it has the longer....is it called plate? arm? whatever, that will give me more room to do my free motion quilting. The only difference in this one and the other Sapphire is that it doesn't do the automatic cut (I think I can handle a pair of scissors) and doesn't have as many stitches. I don't need a gazillion stitches. My Bernina does more than I'll ever do in a lifetime. Sooooo, I'm a happy camper. Owners classes start Friday morning at the pre-crack of dawn (we get three), so I will be hitting those so I can at least learn how to thread this mother.
NOW, the next question. Do I learn how to use the MegaQuilter without the Qbot (yes!) or sell it. I think before I do anything rash, I'm going to give it a shot. I'm so proud of myself I could just spit!! I'm going to hit YouTube, and Yahoo groups and everything it takes for me to learn this. I'm bound and determined. Hold me accountable, okay? That's why I'm putting this out there. So you will hold me to my word. That's what friends do, righto? :)
Another post without a picture. hmmmm.....I guess I could go through my pictures and try to find something to show you. I tried to copy the picture of the machine I'm getting to put on here, but it wouldn't let me. :(
So, I will bid you adieu and go clean potties. Don't be jealous. You KNOW you wish you were me. You know it. LOL
Love ya to the moon and back,
