So, I caved! My good machine is a Pfaff Performance 5.0, so I knew I wanted to get another Pfaff. As a Pfaff owner I get email from the company and the majority of the time I delete it without looking at it, but this particular day I actually read it. Pfaff had the Passport models on sale, about 28% off with a free extension table added to sweeten the deal. So, meet my new friend--Passport 2.0!
One of the reasons I went with a Pfaff for this second machine, besides my overall happiness with the brand, is that the Passport and the Performance can share many of the same feet. That means I can move back and forth between the machines with the same project and still have exactly the same stitches and the same seam allowance, there will be no small variations.
As you know, my DAUGHTER and I get together to sew several times a month and now we'll be able to set up both machines at the same time and work together on projects. We are really looking forward to tandem sewing! I'm looking a certain King sized project of mine with flying geese, as well as looking ahead to another King sized project that DAUGHTER has planned 'cause she inherited the crazy-make-it-bigger-quilting gene from me. ;-)
I haven't had much time to use it yet, but I did quilt the hexie mini quilt with it, and will be having some happy sewing days this week! So eager to move forward on a couple projects and get binding attached to the quilts that have recently come home from the long arm quilters.
I have so many things I want to make right now that I feel like I am just about to burst with quilty enthusiasm! It's is going to take a Herculean effort to stay focused, but I'm not going to give in because I don't want to start creating UFO's. My UFO list is finally in the single digits and I don't want to let it get out of hand again!
