I'll probably be MIA for a the next several days...but don't worry, I'm just off playing with my new toy! My Quarter inch foot didn't come in with the machine, so I'll have to wait a few days for that, but missing the extra foot isn't going to keep me from experimenting!
But first, I have to go play Bob the Builder. My new machine doesn' fit in my sewing machine cabinet, and there is no way to trim it down a bit to make it fit. So DH sent me on a mission to IKEA tonight. Since the machine comes with a big extension table and I'm only going to piece not quilt with it, having the machine recessed in the cabinet isn't a requirement for me. I did find a suitable table at IKEA for a decent price. The table top is something like 47"X24" so it is a good size, and the leg are adjustable so I can make it low enough that the machine will be at a comfortable height for sewing. I have no idea how long it will take to assemble the table, but I'm sure it will be time well spent.
Unfortunately before I can do that assembly, I need to clean my sewing area. Sigh. So you know where I'll be tommorrow...digging out from under the pile, organizing myself, assembling the table and then PLAYING! I have a table runner cut out, so hopefully early next week I'll have something interesting for you to see.
