What have we here?

This arrived at my place today. it has just been unpacked from the ute* (pick up truck).

Of course, it wouldn't be any use without this.
A semi-industrial, straight stitching machine!
The former owner has replaced it with a computerised twice-as-large version (she is a professional quilter) so this one has come to live with us (via an online auction site).

Now WM and I have to put it together (when we find a suitable home place for it).

And DD and I have to watch the DVD that goes with it.

Then it will be time for some fun practice!

*ute = abbreviated form of "utility vehicle"


  1. Wow! Congrats! Can't wait to see your first completed projects.

  2. It is going to be wonderful to do your own quilts-it does take up a lot of room tho! Enjoy!

  3. No way!! That's awesome! I also can't wait to see what you do with it!

  4. So exciting! The quilting is o much easier and more fun witha proper frame. Have fun getting it up and going.

  5. Wowzers!! How exciting. I've been looking at the babylock machine. Please let me know how you like it on the frame.

  6. How exciting... Now where to put it!?!

  7. Enjoy your new gadget. You should be able to get UFOs done that is if you have any like me.

  8. So cool, where is this going to be sitting? Can't wait to see your projects.

  9. Oh my goodness this is so exciting! You're going to create such beautiful things!

  10. Oooh, I can't wait to hear how it goes!! Good luck with it :)
