New Sewing Machine

A timely follow up to yesterday's post...

So, every since I took up quilting, I've been using my parents' original 1966 Singer - you know, the big metal ones that weigh about 75 pounds?

It's old faithful, for sure, but after so much wear and tear, it's become a chore, rather than a joy, to sew on it.

So, after much begging and pleading, I convinced my fabu father to spring for an early Christmas present for me:

Whee!


Isn't it PRETTY?

And it was ON SALE!

And has so much stitch choices! It boggles the mind! The old one was lucky to reverse, much less make pretty patterns!

Boggled


I'm in love. *swoons*

Thanks, Dad! :-)

Granted, I pretty much had to arm wrestle him to get to use it now, instead of waiting until Christmas, but I'm pretty scrappy. ;-)

(BTW, it's a Singer Confidence 7463, if anyone is interested...)
