Have you ever fallen in love, at first sight? Oh yes, I have. I met my dear husband that way quite a number of years ago. Actually we met nearly 16 years ago! Gosh I must be getting old!!!
It was across a smokey, crowded bar, after working late again in the sweat shop. There he was, talking to my flatmate who I was meeting up with before going home. Oh he looked so sweet in his white cotton jumper and I knew right then that he was the man for me. I actually rang my mother the next day to tell her that I had found my future husband! Hey, she believed me. She got engaged after three weeks or something ridiculous!Anyway what the heck am I on about? Oh yes, I'm in love with the Brother QC1000. Yeeeessss. Very nice indeed. What do you think? Pretty jolly handy piece of equipment wouldn't you say? Do I need such an extravagant machine? Oh gosh yes!!!!!! Of course, no q's asked.
Are any of you lucky enough to have one of these delightful pieces of machinery? Know of anyone with one? I'd love to know if they are as good as they look. Well I did see it in operation in the shop yesterday but I haven't used one yet. Oh it's soooo smooooth. It sews sideways too if you wish it to. Cuts the threads. It can even write the alphabet!! Clever little fellow.
Look at this optional attachment. Imagine binding in one step!
And this walking foot is just what I need right now for quilting. It comes complete with this one.
And hear this, if you get this other foot attachment, it cuts while you overcast, just like an overlocker!!! Imagine the savings when you actually get two machines for the price of one. Oh my goodness me!
Suddenly my little plain machine looks so clunky and rubbishy. Isn't that awful? Look, you've just got to help me so I can hurry up and buy it. No, I haven't looked at anything else. Of course I will, but I just know in my heart of hearts that this will be the one for me.
All my photos came from the brother website. The hearts were lovingly given to me by my dear, darling husband who is getting a tax refund soon. Yes he is a lovely man and he quite agrees with me that it is a fab little fella. He knows I've already bought it, we just haven't handed over the money... yet!
