Why worry about buying to machines, he gave you the money to do what you wanted with it. So just be happy and do a lot of quilting. HUGS

I love my Janome 350. It is so easy to use. I have that machine working away while I was sewing on a quilt on my Janome 6500. Oh, the fun you will have.

He said to do with it what you wanted......and this is what you wanted. So I'd say he won't care what you spent it on. Enjoy your machines.

I put it in the bank and didn't touch it for weeks then asked him again what he meant. Again he said do whatever you want with it I don't care. So after careful deliberation I bought a new sewing machine, a Janome MC6600. The shop gave me their standard $50 off for purchasing with them and an additonal 5% off for buying with cash or check. After bringing it home I pondered about my quilt shop's machine offer, buy one get the second 20% off. I couldn't resist, yesterday I took advantage of the 2 machine discount and bought my first embroidery machine, a Janome 350. What sweeted the deal, after saving almost $300 and the 5% off for buying with cash, I discovered that the husband of one of the owners loves to take designs he finds on the computer and digatizes (not sure of spelling) them to use on the Janome machine. He is not only going to teach me how to use the machine, he will give me a file of very cute snowmen faces, a file he made of various things his wife said she was thankful for to make a Thanksgiving wall hanging and a file with sun bonnet Sues he made for a 12 block quilt in blue, one for each month of the year. My husband knows about the MC6600 because he saw me set it up on the table, now I have to break the news that I actually bought 2 machines....any suggestions how to break the ice?
Wow good for you. You will enjoy sewing "sew" much more now! Congrats!

Do what you want with his blessings already received. Maybe make a special quilt just for him with hearts here and there!

Congrats on your two new "babies". I would just show him what a great job you did with shopping, ending up with two for one!
