Conversation with Lorelei....and other stuff...

I might as well start off with a Lorelei conversation...it will make three days in a row with something from her.  Today she was talking to her mom about candy and chocolate.  Lorelei says, "Me and chocolate are related."

Sarah says, "What!?!"

Lorelei says, "Me and chocolate are related cause I like it SOOOOO much!"

******************
This is the new kid on the block...I have been wanting it for soooo long.  I didn't really need it...just wanted it.  I had even made up my mind to get a lesser machine.  I was wanting one to have upstairs.  My other Juki is straight stitch only.  So I wanted to keep the Viking downstairs till I would have the other stitches if I needed them without running up here or taking the machine up and down the stairs.
Anyway, I don't know if  anyone else has realized how distracted I have been.  I am the  most indecisive person ever.  So on one hand felt like I didn't really need this.  But sewing machines are to me what jewelry is to other women, or guns are to a lot of guys or cameras to some.
These are all the stitches it does.
I even took a day and went and tried a different brand of machine, but to get one this nice I would have had to pay a lot more money.

the pressure feet
Even though the machine I was looking at was not that much cheaper, it did not have near the pressure feet that come with this one.


And though my Viking has a buttonhole thing similar to this, it doesn't have the all the buttonhole options.

Anyway, I ordered it Wednesday....from a place in Alabama.  Without ever seeing it in person.  Without ever test-driving it...I was going by the quality of my Juki 98Q...plus I posted a question on the Juki 98 group to see if others had this machine and what they thought of it.  The replies I got made me long for one even more.

So now I have it...I have played on it all afternoon.  I think I am going to love it about as much as I love my 98Q.

You lucky, lucky girl. Wait til Lorelei is old enough to start wanting to use it. Eloise is already starting to show an interest. Wish I could afford a super machine. Am still using my old Brother quilting machine. This one looks heavenly. Happy Sewing,my friend.

Wow, your new machine looks like a goodie. I have never tried that brand before but it is certainly on my radar now.

it looks like it has the stamp of cat approval... MOL... life is short and if a sewing machine makes you happy you should have it. i don't need a laptop AND a desk top, but i have them, i don't need 3 cameras, but i have them... bob doesn't need 40 airplanes but he has them... so enjoy your stitching....

love her view on chocolate - and the fact that she tried to scare herself out of hiccups. :)

Sewing Machines don't like me. LOL. But yours sounds perfect for you. Lorelei is just too funny.

What a fun thing to do. Take the bull by the horns and just go for it. I am glad you did and I can tell by your post you are glad too. Have fun. MB

Congrats, Rose! I'm sure you will enjoy it very much!

How wonderful! This should keep you stitching happily for a long time :-) I keep thinking about getting a cheap machine that I could keep downstairs and take to classes and bees. Too much trouble loading up the other one and dragging it downstairs. Nothing fancy needed....just something I can keep handy. So far I'm too cheap to buy another machine....seems so unnecessary to spend the money even for a cheap one.

I'm glad you got the machine with the most options. I can appreciate it because of the $ I've spent on cameras. The best always seem to cost more! :-)

Holy buckets, that's a lot of stitches. I'm happy for you to get what you wanted and to like it so much.

Lorelei - boy do I hope you always like your relatives!

Oh my goodness! Such a pretty new toy! Congrats! Love your jewelry analogy - I agree, I'd much rather have a new sewing machine than diamonds Although diamonds might be cheaper ;o)
