I Want Another 6600 Table

Thank you for the comments about my FMQ and just getting it done.  I'm feeling quite proud of myself as I got the compass points done today!  Everyone's comments mean a lot.  I don't feel so quite alone.  

 I decided to do the blue points with rayon thread as regular thread disappeared into the blue and looked washed out.  I really love that my Topaz has a Freemotion Floating stitch.  I hate hopping all over the quilt with a stupid spring foot.  Floating along like a longarm machine makes things so much easier.

I told my husband I was going to buy another Janome 6600 table, take out his bookcase on the other side of the computer (another outlet is there) and put my Sapphire on it.  That way I can use my Topaz just for machine embroidery.  His eyes got all wide and he retorted back with a very strong NO.  I think it's a great idea!  Usually I have him wrapped around my fingers.  Hmm.  He wins.  Or so he thinks.

Here's a close-up of the rayon thread and the quilting.  If you click on it, you'll get a better view.

I still need to design a center motif and bind it.  Lazy me says just fold it over.  However; I was thinking of putting this in the county fair when started this project under "Original Design".  That means the other binding.

As for the table start cooking your hubby's favourite meals and then he can't resist.
