Meet Rory, my new favoritest sewing machine!


This is her straight out of that lovely box I posted last Friday. So exciting!

We have had a bit of time to get acquainted over the weekend, and she is definitely amazing! Let’s see…we quilted a doll quilt and a baby quilt (pictures coming soon), made a baby shower gift:


(check out that super cool “accessory wardrobe” back there!)

and here she is hard at work on a brand new quilt top!


Doesn’t she look right at home in my table? And can I just say, hurray for a knee lift! Oh it is glorious! Along with a whole lot of other bells and whistles, of course :)

I plan on Rory and I having lots and lots of adventures together, since she will probably be the last machine I ever own! (Part of how I convinced my hubby that she was a good purchase, tee hee)

And I leave you with this picture of the kid and I, sewing away on a drawstring backpack for one of my adorable nieces whose birthday we celebrated on Sunday! By the way, if I try to sew while Zoey is awake, she insists on sitting on my lap to “help”.


Have a fabulous day! And ps, I do have a quilt almost bound that should be posted by the end of the week, and is it fun!

Hooray for Berninas (er, Rory)!! I have the same exact machine and I doubt I'll own another! Good choice :-). Although, I need a different knee lift, mine doesn't work with my short legs and table set-up. You should get the guided 1/4" foot... Heaven!!!

It may be the last machine you own, but it will be fun convincing Spencer that Zoey needs the latest and greatest ;)

That's really fun... all my kids loved/love sitting on my lap while I sew!!! I thought I was the only one crazy enough!! My eldest is now almost 9 and is about to get a sewing machine for her birthday so perhaps it helped make her creative!!! Love your work... especially the colours! Thanks for sharing!
