Well, I did it;I bought myself the Bernina Aurora QE 440 and the Horn Quilter's Dream sewing cabinet. I am soooo excited!

I was hoping to sell my HQ-16 before I invested any more money into sewing machines, but Thursday 3/5 was my birthday and I bought what I have been wanting ever since I played at my sister's house (and she has the Bernina and Horn). I know many people think I'm crazy to go from a long arm machine to this little Bernina, but I am so much better at FQM than what I could do on the H-Q long arm.

I thought DH might pop a blood vessel because I made this purchase while my money is still tied up in the HQ-16, but he actually was very supportive. He knew how badly I've been wanting this Bernina and he said that it was better to buy it than to keep lowering my price on the
HQ-16, just because I was anxious to sell. Yeap, as far as hubbies go, he's a real keeper! So now the pressure is off;whenever the HQ sells, it sells. In the meantime, I'm thrilled to death with my new Bernina.
Happy Birthday to me!

Happy belated birthday, Nita. My granddaughter has the same birthday. I certainly would love to buy your longarm, unfortunately, I don't have the space or the money right now. Congratulations on your new Bernina. Have fun.
