I Won!

Another amazing day!  I won a giveaway over at Did l Say That Out Loud?  I'm SO excited, I can't stand it!  And it was absolutely gorgeous here in Dallas today.  Rex (The Wonder Dog) and I went for a nice little walk this afternoon when I got home.  And I did my first free motion quilting on the new Bernina.  LOVE IT!  I have done quite a bit of free motion quilting over the years, but my new machine came with Bernina's new Stitch Regulator.  I am without smooth, no skipped stitches, so FUN......okay, maybe I have words...I am so happy I made the purchase.

It's hard to see on the black and white fabric, but it's such a beautiful quilting stitch.  I'm in love with her, my new baby.  I feel a little sad for my Babylock, she is still a great machine.  I think I am going to try and find her a new home.  She does embroidery and also has a beautiful stitch and I'm sure she will make the next owner very happy.

I'm off to bed now, my mom is taking me shopping for my birthday tomorrow!  Yeah!  She lives in Denton and I love heading down to the square downtown.  It's lovely and has so many neat shops and eateries.  Looking forward to spending time with Mom!  It's been awhile since we got together.  I have to call weeks in advance to get on her schedule!  She's retired and I think she is busier than I am!

Thanks again to Amy over at "Did I Say That Out Loud" for the great giveaway.  I'll be picking up my prize from her at the next meeting of the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild.
