Wonder Toy

I've been really lazy lately about posting (I know, my bad) so I thought I'd better drop in a say a quick hello - Hello!!!

Today I'm going to introduce you to my new wonder toy. Actually, it's not so new.  I got it in the beginning of January, so I've had it for a couple of months now already. Anyway, here it is, tadah!

It's the Brother QC1000. And it's amazing!

I've had my eye on it for a couple of years now. And I've been trying to get everyone to buy it for me: Yummy Hubby, Mum, Dad, even dropping hints to my friends, colleagues and boss (no harm trying, you never know when you can catch someone on a generous day right? hahaha). Of course everyone either ignored me or fell just short of telling me to sod off, so two months ago I went out to my LQS and bought it myself. And you know what? I absolutely love it.

It's such a far cry from my old Singer: there're so many functions and buttons and feet etc etc, it took me a while to figure things out. There's been a lot of trial and error. And a lot of broken needles. There was  even one night when I started bawling and sobbing like a child (not kidding here) because I thought I'd broken the entire thing. Which of course I hadn't, eheheee.

I've still got my trusty old Singer. It's been cleaned out and is currently getting a well earned rest (retirement??) in its cabinet. Yummy Hubby thinks I should give it away to someone, but I'm feeling a bit selfish (or sentimental?) about it, for now at least. Perhaps if he asked me again in a few months...

In the meantime, I'm enjoying every minute with my wonder toy :-)

Have a happy week ahead!
