    We were fortunate to celebrate Christmas this evening. My SIL had to go to work at 7:00pm and has to work tomorrow also. I am a girl that likes to do a lot of different things. So in the summer, I used a friends Pressure Washer to wash my house, patio and anything else I could wash. (Good thing my DH was not around) :lol: After that day, I "hinted" to my 3 kids and husband that I wanted one of my own. Well, I am excited to say, that is what I got for Christmas. I didn't start quilting until September of this year. My machine is a Singer that is 30 plus years old. LIttle did I know that I would also want a new sewing machine. HA!HA!---already dropping hints for Birthday, Anniversary and NEXT Christmas.

    Hope you all have a great Christmas. In the short time I have been a member, I have truly enjoyed everything about this board. There is so much knowledge and generosity here. You all are amazing. God Bless!!

    Oh and this is the first "White Christmas" we have had here in my part of the midwest in several years. It is very pretty but it is a shame it ruins some family gatherings this time of year.

    Hey, you can come and test out your new pressure washer on my house!
    and look for a large throat area on the sewing machine you want. anything over 6 inches is great.some have 9 to 11 inches!

    lol

    I love pressure washers, too! I don't have one, but I have a pressure nozzle for the hose that does a decent job. :)

    No snow here, this year. But, I am okay with no shoveling and no cold, either!

    Have a safe and merry Christmas. :)

    Illinois may not have had snow on Christmas, but believe me, they do get snow there. I grew up in Il., and have lots of memories of playing in the snow, and when I moved to KY, I thought that was the South and we wouldn't have snow here. Wrong!! It isn't far enough south to be warm in the winter for darn sure!! We are only Southerners to you Northerners!!LOL
