I would say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU & ... You were very considerate. It is so hard now a days to find people like that, it seems everybody is out for #1. It is very very sad. You are a wonderful granddaughter in law. I wish my grandma was still here with us and that she quilted. She was a sewer. I would make sure that her giving it to you is really what she wants. Then I would accept her WONDERFUL GIFT WITH grace, diginity and appreciation. Then when it's home I would be doing the HAPPY DANCE, for the next year at the very least. :lol: :lol: :lol: ;););)

Have a blessed day. (For you & your grandma in law).

:lol: debra :lol:

I would call her back and thank her so much for the offer. You would be glad to take it, if she is not going to use it. You were just in such shock you answered too quickly

I about wet myself when she said that. I like the dolt that I am told her that she should really get to using it to me. I would love to have a long arm but she should use it right? I really wish that I had told her to go ahead and send it to me but I would feel really really bad taking it. especially with her not using it really and spending a lot of money on it.
what would you guys have said or done? was I really really stupid for telling her to just hold on to it?
I would have done the same thing. Told her I would love to have it but that she should be sure she didn't want to use it. Then I would offer to quilt all her quilts.
