Red face Best Husband Ever!

I just have to share this... Yesterday, my husband and I took the day off. He suggested that we go to a city about an hour away and go do some "quilt shopping". We started off at Grubers... Found another new project to add to my list! Then he suggested we go to a sewing machine dealer that I've been wanting to check out for months. There aren't a lot of Babylock dealers in our area and St. Cloud (MN) is probably the closest. I've had my heart set on one for awhile now but always thought of it as kind of a daydream. Couldn't imagine spending that kind of money on a new machine when I have two that (mostly) work already. They are a different class of machine (think used Yugo) versus the Babylock (think Lexus).

Long story short, hubby bought me a new Babylock Soprano!! I believe this is the model that's replacing the Symphony. It's A-MAY-ZING!! It's so quiet... And sooooo smooth and it has all the great features I wanted and more (thread cutter, advanced needle threader, pivot feature, knee lift... I could go on and on. I am the luckiest woman on the planet. I asked my husband why he bought it for me and he just said... "That smile on your face - it's my job to put it there as often as I can."

Wow! Sometimes when we have someone who loves us this much, we take it for granted.
You are blessed to have each other.

Nope... But I often tell him that if I die first he will have them piled up 5 deep to get a chance with him! He's definitely a keeper!! Plus he enjoys fabric shopping more than I do!

He sounds like a great person, you are both blessed for finding each other. (A lot of women would not appreciate that kind of love, just take it for granted.)
