    Happy birthday to you :D :D :D I'm glad you could get what you actually wanted, and really glad that you forced yourself to straighten out your budget!!! And you were rewarded for it..you have to keep an eye on your own money..don't even trust the bank :shock: And its a weight off your shoulders to know you've got things under control. Makes it way more comfy to sit at that new machine :D :D :D Have fun!!

    Good for you! You'll enjoy your new machine now without the guilt you'd have felt by blowing off your bills. Have fun!

    Happy Brithday and like someone else said don't forget to share photos and tell us how much you love it!

    Shame on the bank don't they know you needed that money? Just as a thought... Since it is a mortgage... You could put that money back in the bank and payahead a bit. That always helps in the long run.

    Well, I just got home from my parents house, so here are some pics of my new machine, being inspected of course by the quality control officers (Kitchen and Satchmo. I think my excitement has rubbed off on them as they are currently chasing each other round, chasing the spools of thread that are on he floor (the machine came with free threads - LOADS of them, and a set of scissors nd a tape measure and some bobbins and some needles.

    I have been munching away on my Wheat Thns and am saving the Cheetohs for a night in with a DVD later this week - THANKS KATHY!
    Enjoy the pics, I am tired from all the excitement, am off to bed soon! I will be playing with my new machine tomorrow night when I am fresh!

    Oooh, whats this then?

    I agree with Jim'sGem.

    Your life will have less stress if you have a machine that works. If mine started to act up, I would probably be saying words a lady should not say.

    Oh my! I had to round up the whole family to check out Kitchen over the door! DH wants to know how you got Kitchen to pose that way in the Avatar. :D

    All that new thread! WOW! Everyone here agrees you have over $100 in thread! At least you'll have a long while worth of sewing before you have to buy more! I love the photos of your kitties checking it all out, ours do that too, it's wonderful how they want to make sure it's safe for you to use.

    Pretty Kitty , Trust your own judgement i feel you know what that is. But we all need a hobby and mine has become quilting and it is contagious. I do hope you have a wonderful birthday . Esther
