    My new toy...

    My Husqvarna Viking Ruby Deluxe decided to break down on me right before Christmas with lots of embroidery still to do. The mother board died. Only had it two years so this was quite a blow! Thankfully it was still under warranty so I took off for Jo Ann to taker her in. They were so kind to loan me another machine because it would take about 6 weeks to get the Ruby repaired. Well, I only kept the loaner for a few days because I decided to buy a new machine. Actually, my husband wanted to get it, I was shocked, because of the price. But Viking gave me a wonderful trade in for my machine and viola!! I love this thing. She's so big and beautiful. Runs like a dream. Even the automatic threading has been updated on this machine (trust me, it needed it). I love this! I have done tons of embroidery for my grand-girls for Christmas. They want EVERYTHING monogrammed. This machine made me happy AND my girls happy!

    beautiful and really cool. I thank your daughter for serving our country. My dad and Uncles were in the US Navy. So, I appreciate the service.

    Now that's what I call "lemonade from lemons". You probably would not have "upgraded" any time soon (especially since your machine was only 2 yrs. old). So nice that your DH wanted to get this for you. I'm sure you are having a great time with your new machine.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What a lovely gift especially with a husband who sees the joy you get from your quilting.

    Congrats on the new machine. I was at the JAF to pick up a foot for my old Viking....and, of course, was told she would give me 5k for it if I purchased the epic.....my answer being...."hmmm, let's see that leaves a balance of 10k".....end of conversation! And off I went with my little foot in my purse!
