    Christmas came early at my house

    My husband and I went out saturday and bought the Handi Quilter Avante 18. It will be delivered and setup in a couple of weeks. I can not wait to see my new baby. I am so excited. Hope you all get your Christmas wishes.

    What a great gift!!! I know you will enjoy it. I would have a hard time waiting for it to get there. I am not very good at waiting.
