I was resting yesterday afternoon, trying to appease the cold that won't die, and I heard the doorbell ring. Immediately I ran for the front door in case it was my new Pfaff. I didn't want the UPS guy to drive off with it if I didn't answer. He was already driving off when I got there, but you can see what was waiting for me.
It sure seemed like a really big box, but when I saw all the gear that was in it, I understood.
Very quickly I got down to what you see here. It has the embroidery unit and more hoops than I'd realized were coming. There's a Grand Hoop, All-Fabric Hoop, Endless Hoop, Petite Hoop, and the hoops that come with the unit. Guess I'd better learn to embroider after all! Probably not just this minute, though. Also in the box was an extra bobbin-case for bobbin-work, extra bobbins, and a straight-stitch plate. I've probably missed something, but I'm a little overwhelmed by all the goodies.
And here's my new baby at home.
I fooled around a little bit last night and again today and am getting comfortable with some basic things. I needed to alter a few pairs of pants for Pearle, which is a quick, easy job, but it was perfect for learning precision with this machine. They all have their little quirks, and I'm sure there are lots of things that I'll learn to do in a better or easier way, but I'm pretty thrilled so far.
