my new lady viking...

oooooo...just look at her.  so pretty.  so quiet.  sooooo dreamy.

it was time.  my last machine lived its life.  in fact, it lived several lives.  considering that i bought it for $50 on craigslist, i really got a LOT out of it.

so, i bought this beauty.  i wanted something simple.  something without a lot of bells and whistles.  i didn't want anything electronic.  just a few stitches, a free arm, the ability to do a free motion stitch.  and really, that was about it.

and this is what i found.  the viking emerald 116.  i honestly can't believe the difference.  seriously.  it's SO much easier to sew!  any buyer's remorse i had vanished the first time i made something with it.  actually, any buyer's remorse i had vanished the minute i used the needle threader!  i wasn't looking for that feature by any means.  in fact, i always, i can thread my own needles...who needs a needle threader...honestly.  and boy, oh, boy, i had no idea what i was missing.  just that one simple's actually pleasant to thread the needle.  pleasant, i say!

such a relief to have a new machine.

and leo loved the box :)


i'd love to hear from you! and thank you for visiting...
