    Wink My pony came!

    My boyfriend asked if it would be okay to get me one large present of something I really wanted instead of a bunch of little things. I said, "Okay. You can buy me a pony."

    One day, he came over and asked if I wanted one of my Christmas presents early because I really needed it. I said, "Sure but bring some hay for the pony. I guess we can tie her up in the backyard for a few days until you can take her to the farm." (He lives on a farm.) He brought me a vacuum. Which I desperately needed and am so happy to have.

    After that, he did mention a time or two again about a "big" present.

    I've been working on a quilt and have been having some problems with the machine I'm using. He said, "Well, maybe your Christmas present will make it easier." Seriously? I already suspected but, seriously?? LOL Dead giveaway!!

    So, my pony arrived on Christmas morning. Her name is Singer. She quilts. Her registered name is Singer Confidence Quilter 7469Q.

    I haven't been home long enough since I received it to even take it out of the box!! I am so so sooooo excited! I've been using my grandmother's circa 1992, cranky machine for three or four years now. I can't wait to get at this machine!!!

    Better than a pony!
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    Just think of how much money you will save not having to buy hay, more to buy fabric. I want new pony.

    I vote him a keeper too. Sounds like he really understands that a pony is a necessity.

    The bonus of this pony ... you won't need hay or water for it ... or have to deal with the poop!

    I think the cowboy rode my pony off into the sunset because it never arrived.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I have the exact "pony". Love everything about her except that I occassionally have a problem getting the bobbins to wind. Usually end up filling them on my Brother and using them in the Singer. Still wouldn't trade it! Lucky you and great boyfriend!
