    Yesterday, Boyfriend stopped to pick up his dog, I babysit her, and said he had to hurry, my present was coming. PRESENT?????!!!! What is it? Something off craigslist, he says, youre gonna LOVE it. Come to my house after Supper!
    I just KNOW this is a treadle. Probaly a Singer, as he sees me drooling over them every time I see one on craigslist. I hurry up and choke down dinner!!!!!!!!!!
    Drive to Bf's, just in time to see a guy pulling up with a trailor. Guess what is on it>>????????????
    A LAWN MOWER!!!!!!!! A LAWN MOWER?????? This is NOT my treadle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Oh, well, its a riding lawn mower, a John Deere, who doesnt love a Deere, ya know. Its honestly really fun, and nice.....BUT................
    LOL, maybe next time????

    The classic man--"here's your present, can I play with it?"

    Get some of that John Deere fabric and tell him you'll make a cover for it if he gets you a treadle!

    What a clever idea!

    Tell him just wait for his present, then present him with a treadle!

    I agree: perhaps for a birthday, father's day, or christmas present. I once got a food processor for mother's day, yep, it's still in the box (waiting for him to use it).

    I bought my DH a laptop computer for Mother's Day, now waiting to see what he buys me for Father's Day.

    I agree - buy 'him' a treadle.

    Enjoy!

    Somewhere there is a treadle for you, just have to wait.

    Once my supposedly intelligent brother got his wife for her
    birthday..are you ready for this?>.....he got her a chain saw!!!

    And was honestly bewildered when she wouldn't speak to him
    for a week! He took it back and had the sense to ASK her what
    she wanted for a present!

    Maybe I am different but I like the power tools as well as the quilting tools too.
