My New Toy


Happy Birthday/Merry Christmas to me from hubby :)
Yes, it's early but heck, a girl's gotta take advantage of an opportunity when she can!!!

I've had a love/hate relationship with my 2002 Bernina Artista for quite a few years. When she's home set up in my sewing room she works like a charm, but when I travel to retreat with friends it always seems like Bernie has some traveling issues and then I sit and covet Lori (no blog) and Michelle 's Baby Lock Espire. So, I asked hubby if he'd consider getting me yet another machine and combine it with the 2 holidays, and since he was agreeable, off we went to my favorite quilt shop "Quilting Possibilities" and got the 2010 version of the Espire called "Symphony". Same machine, just more bells and whistles. I've been playing with it for a few days and am assembling my orange quilt today, and I have to tell you...it sews like a jem!!!! I absolutely love it!!! Only problem i'm having with this machine, which I always had with Bernie too is the darn automatic needle threader....never can master it!
Check back later today for a finished orange crush picture....

How lovely. my Bernina(which i adore) always plays up after travel too, so I bought a little Bernette for travelling. It is great... your new machine looks fabulous! Have fun!
