New Toy!

My new machine is here and I love her.  She has so many tricks and is such a good girl. She knows how to cut her own thread

and she has a clear bobbin cover so you can see when the thread is running out – which is brilliant.

and she can take on big old quilting projects without complaint.  She is oh so quiet.  The boy even said so. My husband is now regretting he didn’t get me one back when we lived in a loft (sewing is rather loud in a shared space).

She still needs a name, though. I’m taking suggestions so feel free to post them.
