RECALCULATING

I feel like our GPS system....when you get thrown off course it says..."RECALCULATING"

SO.... I am recalculating and you will see why when you see what we just picked up today!!




Oh Yea Baby!!!! Smell this.....(sending you a whoof of this awesome smell of newness)!!



This is where the recalculating comes in....I want so bad to sew on it but there is no room in this hotel.

Son leaves Tuesday, Husband goes to work on Wednesday..... "RECALCULATING"....

"where there is a will, there is a way.....


So for now.....I will read the instruction book and look at the DVD that comes with it and then........come Wednesday

when everyone is gone....

the house cleaners have cleaned....

when I have finished exercising and all is quiet....

me and this baby have a date...

My husband wants to call him "Mr. Big"....HA!!! He should know, he is the one that had to bring this puppy up to the room..... This is a big machine...and comes with a metal table but the table will have to sit in the box til the 30th.

Our room is slowling getting filled up....hummmmm

  2. I know you are excited!!! How frustrating to sit and smell it, touch it, read about it, even watch other people on it in DVD, and not be able to use it yet!!

  9. The build up of anticipation is going to be as good as the actual using of this machine (I think!!!)

    I really miss my sewing now in Melbourne - next time around I am looking for a cheap simple machine to keep here. I so miss my quilting.

  15. I am so jealous! You lucky girl you. I regularly go into my SewVac and pet the Horizon on display. I'm jealous; but, I'm happy for you. Waiting anxiously for your comments once you give it a test run.

  17. What torture to have a brand new toy and not be able to enjoy it. I'm sure it is pretty crowded in that hotel room though. Soon you will be able to spread out and enjoy.

  24. Youve got it, hurrah! At least with things like charm packs, you can probably play without needing a cutting table.

  25. Oh dear, did not realize you were having to stay in a hotel, but where did I think you would stay...duh I know you will feel better once you get that thing humming along.

  28. What agony ..to have to wait! Congratulations!

  29. Ohh, Bravo! If it was me, I'd be setting that puppy up on the floor to sew!!! Hey, I just had a thought! Don't most hotels have conference rooms?!!! The cleaning crew must really be wondering about you. I can hear them talking to each other now... "What kind of tourist buys a sewing machine for a souvenir?" LOL!

  30. THAT is one big baby!! Looks awesome. I love my janome, maybe i'll graduate to yours someday!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Nice! Maybe you and Mr. Big need an adjoining room? Probably too expensive though.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think you and Mr. Big are going to have many happy years together. Gosh, is he good looking. Sure nice of your hubby to go off to work to give you time to spend focused on Mr. Big.

    Enjoy!

  33. I see that you got a new sewing machine, Big congrats.....I saw your stack of hand dyed's also. Be very careful with those, I have a friend who's hand dyed ran on her Baltimore album quilt. My suggestion to you, if you wash a quilt that has those fabrics, be sure to use a "dye magnet" cloth.
    Should catch any color...

    Nice meeting you

  34. Sweet is right. I covet that puppy. Have fun with it.

  35. Oh Barb, I'm so jealous. I've been wanting one of those. Enjoy and tell us how you like it. I hope you're free motion quilting on Mr. Big soon.

  36. I know you are already on the machine....dancing away! Love it, can't wait to see what it does! Reading the manual is a good thing, you will be so ready for that baby!!! Oh, yeah, Mr. Big!

  37. You can always bring it to my house :). Actually, my neighbor was waiting for her new Janome to arrive today and I was hoping to trot down to the cul de sac to check it out tonight. I take it you've found the quilt shops already?

  38. You must have been a very good girl this year for Santa to bring you this treat! Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  39. So pretty! Hope you've had a chance to play with it.

    I managed to finish my Santa quilt top that is similar to yours. The machine I mailed here is AWFUL for quilting. It is looking so bad but I'm so cold I want to just finish it and use it.

    Is it snowing there?

  40. Hello Barb, boy you have some will power...I think I would have had it out and sewing, sewing sewing...look forward to seeing what Mr Big is capable of..Hugs Lyn
