    I think you sound a little sick to me. Go "home" before you get every one else sick too. And once you are out, you are free!!!

    Let's see it is a three hour drive to town, and it is 11:30 now. I could be there by 2:30, convince Ed I am picking it up for you and be halfway home before you get off work.... It could work! Have you made the financial arrangements yet? :wink: :wink: :!:

    Don't forget to pick up enough stabilizer and some embroidery thread. I suggest you get some tear away, some cut away and some wash away. You may need different kinds for different projects. Also a nice pair of small sligtly curved scissors. They help to cut the jump stitches. You don't want to get home and find out you don't have the color or the stabilizer you need.

    The day after I got mine I went on e-bay and got a complete collection of embroidery threads from Thread arts; 125 spools and the rack for them, all for $180.00. A lot cheaper than getting one at a time.

    Have fun!!
