Hi Everyone,

Well she arrived this morning but I had some real housework to do, so I promised myself a good play when all the carpets were cleaned and DD had come home from school and had her dinner....... You can not believe how long the wait seemed!

Well, this evening at around 6.30pm GMT I opened her up...... Oh My Gosh, she is beautiful. In the web pictures she looks quite plasticy and flimsy, but she is neither!! There are feet that I have no idea what to do with (luckily there is a demo video which I shall spend some time watching over the weekend... probably Sunday as I am going tothe quilt fair tomorrow (hopefully to get a frame - still working on DH).

So after unpacking, I have to give her a quick spin!!! She is so quiet, I could sit anyware and stitch on her without bothering the others... I can't wait to put her through her paces properly! But what can I say about that throat?????? Quilting is going to be so much easier... and the lights..... I can really see what I am doing down there - it's fantastic. She is just lovely!

Anyway here are the pictures I promised.... Thank you all for enjoying my fun and excitement.... it is so nice to share as I don't know any other quilters...... (I really need to find a quilty friend here in the UK).

She's absolutely beautiful! You should be so proud! I'm sure she gives you a lot of inspiration for the next quilt on your list. Have fun and enjoy your new baby.

Wow! Aren't you the lucky lady. Congratulations. Now the family goes on fast food so you can have extra time to get to know your new friend. Can't wait to hear about it. Seems we have lots of members in the UK, there may be some near you. But, since you are in hiding they won't know you are neighbors.
Enjoy your new toy. I am proud for you.
