I loved sewing today. Why you ask? hehehe Well because of Red of course. I love, I mean love the table extender. When piecing this just makes it all so much easier. So easy....easy... I think you get the point. Put what is so nice about this extension table is that you can basically lay your whole piecing on it and feed it into the machine.
Another think that I am loving already is who smooth the feeding is. I really just had to walk my hands, which is what you should do, but I haven't had a new machine in some time. So this was new to me and made things so nice.
One thing I will need to change is my chair. It just isn't high enough once the extension table is on. So I will be shopping for a new chair.
One issue I am finding my machine has, is one that I read about. Nesting. ACK! I am playing with some suggestions by fellow owners of the Horizon 7700. What the machine is trying to do is for your to not have any hanging threads at your ends. It is pulling the top and lower thread ends back to the back so that is can stitch over it and hide the loose ends. Love the idea, but not always liking the nesting. doesn't happen all the time, happens just every now and then.
With all new machines there is a learning curve. This I believe is my biggest curve. Everything else is just coming along. OH another HUGE benefit is the automatic tension. It's like this machine just knows what I want. ;o)
Just piecing my carousel lap quilt together. On Red of course!
The girls have allowed me to play on my machine off and on all day. They were happy to b e home I think. But by this evening it had worn off. Screaming was heard and time outs were given. ;o) But how could you resist this little helper?
I playing the drum mommy! Yes she was playing the drum, that is for sure!
