Kathleen is doing a happy dance!

Last night was the big night! Kathleen, Whitnee and I headed down to Daves Bernina to pick up Kathleens' new Bernina Aurora 440QE that she won from the McCalls Quilt Design Star Challenge.
I'm pretty sure Kathleen was floating around the studio all day yesterday, she was so excited!
The new machine all packaged up!
Opening the box. Yup! Still super excited!
There she is! Isn't she a beautiful machine!
Now, she just needs to learn how to use all the fancy features. :)
Thanks again to everyone who supported her and voted for her during the contest. Her quilt "It's for the Birds" will be featured in the July/August issue of McCalls Quilting magazine. So make sure to pick one up.
