    Still waiting for mine. But I got a wonderful early Christmas present today (from myself). I have been asking my middle DS since July for lights over my long arm quilting machine. On Thanksgiving I asked my oldest DS about it and he said he would to it. So today he and DGS came in and this is what I now have:Name:  P1010703(1).JPG

    You are lucky grann of 6. I couldn't even get my DD to come over on Thanksgiving. She was having her own little pity party (in the middle of a divorce, no kids) and didn't want to come over to sew. I was really disappointed.

    Enjoy your new lighting. Looks like just what you needed.

    Oh, Grann, those lights are wonderful! How great of your son to help you out with that. YES, I'd love to come and play. Your room looks so inviting and it would be fun to experiment with your longarm. Lucky you.

    grann of 6-- that looks terrific!!

    my husband couldn't find his tape measure. so... i offered to look for it in my ss box. i thought that was very nice of me, but he gave me "that" look ( no, not the 'i know what you look like without your clothes ' look, the other look), well, the tape measure could be in there. now we won't know until the 9th. i have never been good at waiting...........
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    I'm still here! Very, VERY busy weekend/holiday going on.
    Hubby in for the holiday, as was the son in law. Everyone happy except for Courtney who couldn't come up due to having to work. I sure hope they give her Christmas off!!
    The hood in kitchen bit the dust. I could have called the Home Warranty people, but just decided to go and buy a new one. Got the one I wanted and after 4 hours, it's finally installed.
    Yesterday, we were out looking for the hood, and hubby says...hey, why don't we go and look at the dining table you said you wanted. So, off we go. On the way, he decided he has to use the bathroom. He couldn't go before we left. ARGH!! So, we stop at the wine store and he uses the restroom in there. Well, upstairs they have a brewery. So, up we go. After him sampling a couple beers, we get out of there without spending a ton of money. So, back on the road to the store for the table. We get there and I can't find the table. Ahh...there it is! It was moved to another section of the store. Hubby likes it and asks if it the is the one I REALLY want. Well, duh! I wouldn't have brought you here or talked about it almost non-stop if it wasn't THE ONE I wanted! So, he says....do you like any of the hutches that match? Well, of course I do!! Do I like the pricetag that is attached? No, but he says....well, if we are going to get the table, then we should get the matching hutch too. That way, we have the set and all is good.
    Hmmm....so, is he ACTUALLY saying I can have the table AND the hutch? Yeppers! So, after about an hour in the store, we walk out with the receipt for the table and hutch and the paper saying it'll be delivered on Thursday! WOOHOO!! Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Valentine's Day, Happy Mother's/Father's Day and all other holidays to me!! Didn't really plan on spending that much, but we aren't moving anymore, so this is going to be my forever dining set! It's beautiful and I just love my husband!
    Now, if I can only figure out HOW to get the Brother Quattro that I want. lol

    You betcha! I think we have twin machines! I have the QueenQuilter18, the Tin Lizzie knockoff. Still made by Tin Lizzie, but cheaper. Yours looks identical to my Queenie! I've not had mine long, but having a lot of fun with it. Learning with every quilt I do. I'll join you playing anytime!

    Boy Terri, you hit the jackpot for the year! If you can manage to get the dining room set, you'll get your Brother too! Just keep up the chatter about it like you did the dining room table & you'll have it! Christmas is coming, put a bug in Santa's ear & maybe he'll bring it to you for Christmas!

    Terri, that is wonderful that you are getting what you want. DH would take me shopping and we would end up getting what HE wanted, not what I wanted. Now that I am a widow, as you can see I get what I want.

    The long arm is the Husquavarna Viking Mega Quilter 18X8. I don't have the computer on it and never will. I have had it about a year and a half and am still learning too. I can do a pretty good meander. I do mostly charity quilting so I don't need to do fancy stuff, just speedy stuff. I bought the machine from the dealer as a floor model, so got a great deal. The Grace frame cost as much as the machine. Then I have all my other machines in the sewing studio in the basement.

    Love the dogs. They were doing pet photos with Santa as a fundraiser for the SPCA yesterday. I would have loved to take Oscar, but was far too busy. It is DH b-day today and I will have hours of prep to do.

    Hello everyone... Just checking in after getting the house put back together after the big family thanksgiving dinner. Whew! I also got the charity quilts and stockings all boxed up for dotti to give the sandy victims. Going to post office tomorrow.
    I will hopefully finish up the rest of the christmas sewing this week so they can be mailed out by the first.
    Don't ya just love this time of year... lol.

    I love this time of the year



    Christmas makes you feel emotional
    It may bring parties or thoughts devotional
    Whatever happens or what may be,
    Here is what Christmas time means to me.

    City sidewalk, busy sidewalks
    Dressed in holiday style.
    In the air there's
    A feeling of Christmas.

    Children laughing, people passing,
    Meeting smile after smile,
    And on every street corner you'll hear:

    Silver bells, silver bells,
    It's Christmas time in the city.
    Ring-a-ling, hear them ring,
    Soon it will be Christmas day.

    City street lights,
    Even stop lights,
    Blink a bright red and green,
    As the shoppers rush home
    With their treasures.

    Hear the snow crunch,
    See the kids bunch,
    This is Santa's big scene,
    And above all this bustle you'll hear:

    Silver bells, silver bells,
    It's Christmas time in the city.
    Ring-a-ling, hear them ring,
    Soon it will be Christmas day.
