The ol' Singer Confidence Quilter got too noisy and had too many tension problems... So yesterday, I broke down and spent way more than I planned on a Baby Lock Elizabeth! I barely got to use it but so far I love it!
It's from Gloria Horn in Pittsburgh - with the purchase I get three classes teaching me how to use all the neat features on my new machine. It's got an amazing automatic needle threader and thread cutter. I also ordered a large extension table. So excited to get home and sew!!
I've got the Charming Stars quilt all basted and partially quilted - I might rip that out because it was done on the Singer and looks bad on the back. Lizzie will be doing the rest of the quilting! I've also started on a jelly roll quilt that will be squares and rectangles made with Hometown by Sweetwater. And there are supplies on the way to make a t-shirt quilt for a friend of mine - it'll be the first I've done since high school (and the first since I really learned how to quilt). Lots of fun sewing on the way... but I also want to ride my bike more. It's going to be tough!
