Love the new machine! And... How is the 2012 Resolution going?

So, I officially have my Viking Sapphire 835 Sewing Machine, and I am in love.  When Kevin saw my first finished quilt with the new machine he said, "I don't want to say that your other quilts look "unprofessional", but it looks so professional!"  I would recommend this machine to any quilter.  The throat is a great size.  I quilted a Queen Size quilt all in one piece on it (finished that yesterday), and it was a dream.  No puckers, no tension problems.  LOVE!

As for 2012... well, I wanted to make a resolution that would focus a little bit more on getting me out of my sewing chair... So, I decided to start with "Complete to 100% the Zumba video game for Kinect".  So far, I am well on my way.  I discovered that it's almost impossible to complete the first version of the game to 100% (for example, you have to dance with 100 different people online), but for our Anniversary Kevin got me the sequel to the Game.  It's "Zumba Fitness Rush", and it's a BLAST.  Any problems with the original game are gone, the music is amazing (including some Broadway-style Charleston), and it's totally completeable.  It keeps track of calories, and the big challenge is to burn 100,000 calories.  I think that in the three weeks that I've been doing the new game I've only burned 2,000, so I'm going to have to up the ante to complete that one...

I'll keep better track of my stats, and let you all know how it's going!  Zumba!
