I've been a Pfaff girl for a long, long time so choosing a Brother for my new machine was a big decision, when I bought my first Pfaff way back when, it cost more than I just paid for this new machine!! How times (and technology) change..
This lovely machine does everything I could ask for and more. What I didn't realise when I ordered it was that it had a knee lift AND not only did I get $700 off the price because it was the end of financial year sale, the table came as a bonus!! Bonus, bonus!!!
It has over 400 stitches, 385 of which I'm sure I will never, ever use, it doesn't do embroidery because I didn't want one that did! I'm in love with the 'start/stop' button and the automatic thread cutter, sigh........I'm just in love!!!
He Who Works (the gorgeous man that bought it for me) is off to work today so I'm going to play with all the delicious buttons and gadgets on this pink wonder.......:o)
We went out for dinner last night with my brother and sister-in-law, beautiful food at the little restaurant in our village 'While the Billy Boils'. If you're a local within reasonable distance, you should give it a try, fabulous atmosphere, cosy with fires burning, great food and wonderful friendly service.
..my brother gave me this beautiful miniature orchid for my birthday, isn't it gorgeous......
..look at the tiny wooden ladybird on the leaf, love it!
That's the end of my extended birthday celebrations, not bad, I've managed to stretch it to 10 days, pretty good I think ;o)
Catch you later when I've got some sewing to show you........
