    I am so excited. Can't sleep so thought I would tell all. lol

    First last week went shopping for first time with my quilt club and the beautiful batiks I bought , they are gorgeous.

    Then my settlement check from disability came!!! Oh my !!! And hubby just drove me straight to where ever I wanted to go.

    First on list. Mid arm quilter. Will be here next week. WooHoo is a Viking . I brought machine home but they had to order the frame and stitch regulator.
    Then on to buy a complete patio set and a lawn tractor for hubby.

    I was still excited when we got home. Remembered I had promised myself the accucuter Go. Well looked it over and ordered the Studio instead. (dancing going on) It will be here Fri.

    Went shopping one more time. Bought a King size adjustable bed so I can sleep in a bed again. (can't lay flat) It comes today.

    Ok enough . Off to look for a vacation deal. Taking hubby either to Florida or LasVegas in a couple of weeks.

    (thinking) Good thing I didn't get a huge amount of money I would still be shopping rofl. Actually I have a lot left and can't wait to shop hop again.

    Have a great day

    Congratulations! You bought great items- hubby will be happy driving in circles mowing lawn and you can sip some sweet tea while resting on the patio set after using your machine and frame! Sounds like heaven to me!

    Thank you thank you Thank you

    the accuquilt studio came today. Can't wait to set it up and cut things to sell in my online quilt shop and the squares needed for my quilts for the soldiers.

    My disability keeps me down somewhat but I refuse to be a cripple and will continue to sew as long as I can. It is good therapy.

    THANKS

    I think I would opt for Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, Spain, Carribean Cruise, ad nauseum if I were in your position. With what is left over you could get a mobile home and a featherweight and travel the 49 states here (can't drive to Hawaii). Congrats!! Have fun, you deserve it.
