It is official. We did it!!!

Thanks to all of your for buying my stash so I could pay off my bernia embroidery machine without interest. My time was running out - tomorrow and a large interest fee that increased day to day was up to almost 900.00. So thanks you saved me 900.00

Of course you know what that means?? Instead of gradually paying that plus interest on that to credit card company - who doesnt need it any way since they were one of the bailout companies.. They had increased interest rate to 30% even though some payments had been made - of course the minimum due each month showed 0 - I digress!!)

It means that over time I will be spending that money here
giving back to those who helped me - I kept names!! lol And of course I am an equal opportunity buyer so even if you werent able to help I will probably still buy. Still going to de-stash-reorganize and go from there hopefully I can get some quilt tops made now!!!


Could not have done it without you all....

Congratulations, Ems..... That's part and parcel of the old 'deferred payment' plan right? They really really hate you if you pay up......nice to have the right people hating you, huh? LOL
