    Good for you on your purchase. My oldest daughter named my new embroidery machine, "Ibelongatodebbie"
    she wants me to have a name tag made for it with that name on it.

    And I was thinking "guilty association, like "I'm not Lisa" but I guess her name wasn't Linda.....Oh well. Any way, congratulations. Movie or country song or not......Love it. Had me laughing all morning--and I need to be out in my sewing room instead of reading all these cute entries this morning. I do love this board (forum, whatever).....
    Make every day count for something!

    Love it!

    As for the machine: You'll be so happy you went with the upgraded model; you won't be wishing you had the extras in just a few months.

    The name: THE most clever naming of a machine I've ever heard. Love it, love it. Although it might freak me out a little if my father said that...

    I guessed the Linda answer BEFORE I saw it posted. I'm rather proud of myself....I'm 74 years old!

    You think your dad is going to TELL you he knows about Linda or her movie?
