    Go buy a present for yourself. I buy myself presents all the time. I'm making up for not buying myself anything when I thought it was being a good mom by doing without. Young moms out there....Do not fall in that mindset.

    One Christmas I had my eyes on a Pfaff, my first really nice machine. My husband is clueless about sewing machines and I wanted to make sure he got the one I wanted. I laminated the brochure the dealer had given me and I used it for my husband's placemat!!! I got my machine.

    I have stooped quite low at times.....buy what you want, gift wrap it and set it out and act so excited when you open it in front of him....be sure and thank him profusely!

    I usually suggest that I am looking for a (certain) machine on sale - and have found that I am best to stay in the driver's seat of finding it - his idea of getting a machine is from Craig's list. I overpower him with technicalities that my ideal machine should have that he says "go get it!

    Happy Birthday! I hope your husband comes thru for you. If not, act surprised when you open your gift from yourself! LOL

    thanks for all the suggestios, i went to 112 sewing, got a brochure, and put it under his dinner plate, and out right he said, that;s interesting, don't you have a serger and two others. i said yeah, but this one i can download designs, and you know how much your nephews love the embroidered things i make them, and then he switched the subject. we are going on a cruise in Novermber, but that's not my birthday waaaa waaaa. i'll try again after the quilt show , (april 2)
