    He really loves me...A LOT!!!!!!!

    DH and I went looking at sewing machines so I could more easily quilt some of my tops myself. It was his idea and we were only LOOKING. Well the store we went to was having an "event" special and I came home with a Baby Lock Ellisimo Gold, software (to do what all I don't know) and lots (100 spools) of Floriani embroidery thread. Now I need to figure out exactly where in MY sewing room it will fit and how to use all the bells and whistles this little baby has. First I think I need to finish some Christmas projects so I will have time to play. Can't wait for Christmas vacation!
    BTW I love him too!

    I love it when "looking" turns into "taking home." Nice buy. Enjoy your new toy.

    Congratulations! A new machine is so exciting! I have never taken DH with me to shop for a new car much less a new sewing machine. LOL. He would just say get what you want and let's go.
    Got fabric?

    Congratulations on your new baby! LOl! I own the Babylock Spirit and I love it! I've owned Babylock for a few years now started with the Babylock Accent, 4x4 embroidery. Sold that one and upgraded to the babylock ellure. Traded that one for the newer ellure then recently traded that one in for the Spirit and I have never looked back! Enjoy your new toy and i agree he's a keeper!

    I love your story. It must make him happy to see you happy. It reminds me of my own quilt supportive husband who told me he didn't care how many quilts I made as long as I sign them and include the year they were made.
