    :D :D :D You won't believe this girls! Hubby picked up my new to me bernina from the quilt store a few minutes ago and while there he bought me the walking foot! You could have blown me over with a feather! I had told him about pricing them and gawking at the price, about two weeks ago! Who would have ever believed he would remember to even know what to ask for!

    What a surprise! I would have never bought this after spending so much money in the last few months on my machine quilting table, new (to me) artista 180 machine, additional feet, cleaning, patterns, fabric, ect, ect.

    I am so very happy I could just float! This from a man that once asked, if you sew in reverse, does it take the stitches out? My Lord he does listen to me!

    Thank you all so much for sharing this with me! I am stunned ... really! After twenty some years of thinking he never listens, he does something like this. He is a great guy though after all these years, don't get me wrong. I just have to give him credit where it is deserved now!

    I think it was his brush with death almost a year ago to the day that has made the difference.

    Yes you are all right ... He is the tops! He is really special, always has been. But, I am sure you gals have special guys too. Like attracts like ... right? I haven't known very many quilter's that weren't special people with wonderfully big hearts.

    Ha ha ha I didn't do anything different that I know of. Lol! :roll:

    Thanks ever so much for celebrating with me. I LOVE good surprises.

    yeah, much as I love mine and won't trade him in, now that I got him broke in...did what I could :roll: ....I never met the male creature that listened closer than 'survival rate'...and sometimes they push that limit!!! :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    He's definitely a keeper!

    Hubby tells everyone of my "obsession" but does it jokingly. He doesn't complain, only that his quilt is not done yet!

    My hobby doesn't spill into the household budget so he can't complain. And I've contained it- I only occupy one room now.
