    Surprise!!!

    To say that I am surprised would be a major understatement. My husband just bought me a brand spanking new Bailey's Home Quilter Pro 17" top of the line package with Majestic frame, controller, the accessories - the works. I am speechless, to say the least. We just called Chuck to ask about it and the next thing I know my DH is reciting our credit card number. Wow! The kicker is that I have never, ever used a LA before. I have also never held a baby before our kids were born and I turned into a pretty good parent. I just hope the learning curve is not as big - LOL. Now the anticipation begins! I just had to share!!! Yeeeeepeeeeee
    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise

    Congratulation! I am thinking about a LA, so please post a review when you use it for awhile.
    Got fabric?

    How wonderful that your husband shows his support for your craft. Give him some extra kisses!

    LOL...sounds like what my DH did to me in May. We had to get rid of the couch as the living room was the only room big enough to hold our Pfaff Grand quilter 18.8. He actually has practiced on it while I haven't touched it except a few practices at first. I think it was for "him" but he doesn't want to admit it :P. Have fun and enjoy!

    I am so happy for you! I've had my Baileys for many years now and I love it! I think I am still in the learning curve for it though!
