    Jumping for Joy! Guess what Hubby got me?

    A Beautiful HQ Sweet 16 Package including 2 side table extensions!

    Heís always been the best hubby in the world, but THIS was totally amazing!

    Iíve wondered about them for a long time, but then took a class last fall. We spent a day sewing on Sweet 16s with the infamous, fabulous, talented, creative and oh-so-funny David Taylor as our instructor! It couldnít have been more fun! Back then we were trying to get ready for our remodel, so it wasn't a good time. Anyway today I stumbled, quite by coincidence, across a smokiní floor-model package deal and hubby told me, ďGrab it!Ē

    I spent time sewing on her this afternoon and she is awesome. We will pick her up tomorrow morning, right after sheís had a complete going over by the tech, and I canít wait to bring her home.

    Thanks for letting me do a great big happy dance here! I just wanted to tell someone, this was so out of the blue!

    P.S. I donít think Iíll be able to sleep tonight! (:

    Oh, I am so happy for you!! I love that machine, and would so love to have one. This year we need to have our house painted and some other crucial repairs to it, so it's not possible. But I really hope you enjoy every minute sewing on it!!

    I also recently got a HQ16 (no extensions). I've read that learning to free motion quilt takes lots of practice, but I'm beginning to think that I am spastic! My loops are pointy! Does anyone have any suggestions for learning how to make rounded loops that don't have zigs or zags or points in them?? I'd appreciate it greatly!
