    Congratulations - how very exciting to get a new sewing machine - even better with a serger too.

    Woohoo! Congratulations! Enjoy! I work in a hospital and I don't think I will ever have an elective procedure...

    Congratulations to you! Did you also take advantage of the special sale on digitizer Jr. software? If you buy any Janome machine, you can purchase the Jr. software for $150.00 which is a savings of about $300. If this is news to you, log on to the Janome home site for details. I don't want to create my own designs, but there are several things available on embroidery software that I would like to do. I just haven't been properly motivated to buy any software, except the Janome Customizer. Normally, Janome digitizing software is priced "out of sight", but this is a good deal that I would take advantage of if I were buying a new machine.

    Fantastic. Did you know that if you lie on the bed with your head back, nothing droops? Now you just have to figure how to suspend your sewing machine from the ceiing (sideways). The best of both worlds!

    Congrats on your new babies!

    The heck with the lift....beauty is on the inside. Eat,exercise and be happy in life and that will get you looking and feeling well. Almost enough to have a weekend quiltfest.

    Congrats on the machines - it was a well deserved and well spent purchase. You will enjoy them for years to come. Have fun.

But on Sunday - it is just me and the new machines!! Actually, I'm only to start on the Janome. I've never used a Serger before, so am going to wait until I have the lessons (as many as I need/want included in the price). Just had to tell folks - I AM SO EXCITED.
    After all I've done in my life, I always just figured I earned every line, bag, wrinkle and age spot. They are my "Mom badge of Office". lol!

    I bought a Babylock Evolve serger when I retired. Don't waste any money on lessons - they are so easy to use and thread that there is no need for lessons.Put the money toward material - you will be much happier!

    when using your new machines, smile & do some facial exercises & you can your own face lift & quilt at the same time. Enjoy

    I can tell you are very excited. I can certainly understand that. I am dreaming of a long arm machine and hope I have one by Christmas. Then I will be posting WooHoo!! on here, too, because I will be so excited.

    Great choice - no face lift comes with 10 yrs of service, in fact most need redone in 10 years even with minor costly tune ups (botox) in between.

    Your Janome will still be working and producing beautiful quilt "faces" for 20 plus.

    You did well! There's nothng that a smile can't overpower. Just keep smiling and charge the "droops" to the grace of aging. Enjoy those new machines and make lost of pretty things.

    If your eye doctor says it's medically necessary to have the droopy eyelids fixed (interferes with periphial vision), insurance and/or medicare (or both, if you're 65, on medicare and have a supplement) will pay for it. Just had my eyelids done in July and love the results.

    I am so excited for you. This is a much better decision (IMHO) than surgery. Just think of all the fun you are going to have with your new "toys."

    Congratulations. I am so excited for you as well. I sort of seems like we all get something when one gets new stuff, just like Christmas or birthdays. Have a lot of fun.
    Congrats on your upcoming retirement and on DH. He will be retiring on my birthday. I retired in 2004 and have enjoyed it . However until this year I worked all through the school year as a part time math tutor, 4 days a week half a day. and that took up a lot of my time. But have still enjoyed my retirement.

    I bet the new happy look on your face is much more of an improvement than any snipping and lifting could have accomplished.
