    They are so good to me!

    We just bought a new house, one that finally has the space for me to have a dedicated sewing room. As I was unpacking things that had been in storage for far too long, I casually mentioned to my husband that it might be time to look at a new sewing machine...(there wasn't anything wrong with the other one, a Simplicity Quilter's Classic but I really wanted an embroidery machine)...imagine my surprise when the BIG box showed up yesterday with this inside! So excited!!!! A belated Anniversary gift from the hubs and our sons.
