R.I.P. Bubba ... and Introducing...

100_1417

I tried all morning to get Bubba to replicate the noise it was making. Once it finally did, I changed the thread so that I could take it back to the shop and then it wouldn't sew at all! I messed with it and talked to Jen online a little and decided that I was tired of messing with the hassle that he kept giving me. It's been one thing after another for the last year.

So, I decided to trade him in. It was a tough decision, but I really don't want to start hating to use the machine to do anything!

So..... I went and looked at a machine at a couple of the local shops. One shop gave me a really good price with the trade in. I left and thought about it and when I went back, she gave me an even better deal and threw in a $50 foot!

This is what I got!

It's a Janome 6600 and I think it's a great upgrade! I've decided that since it's an upgrade, this machine is a female and her name is JJ.

As you can see, I've tied her out and I LOVE HER!! Now, I have to get busy and finish my cupcakes for the shop. I should really be able to bust these projects out now!

Congratulations! She's purty and I bet she won't turn snarky on you like that Bubba did. Have fun!
I'm a little jealous. :-)

Sweet! What a great machine to get. I bet you will have hours of fun! (I'm so jealous :o)

OK - I was going to post about my new machine today and then I read this post about yours. I hang my head in shame. I love my Janome for quilting but bought a new Brother for regular sewing. I feel so cheap... :)

I love my Janome, Jill. I have the 6260, so it's a lesser model than what you have, but it works like a charm and has everything I need in a machine.

Bubba served you well and now he's gone. The King is dead, love live the Queen!

The cupcakes are adorable.
