I mentioned in my good morning Saturday post that the quilt store was having a sidewalk sale.....well this morning my hubby was in the living room watching a sewing show....I know! Right!...anyway he was yelling down the hall at me to come watch. They were embroidering on something. He asked did my machine do that...I said no but they are having a sale at the quilt store today, I would like to have something that did. He asked how much they cost, I said I had no idea. Well I went to the sale and bought 10 fat quarters for 10$. While standing in line I noticed the deco on sale, so as I was leaving I stopped and looked at it. As i was leaving I texted my hubby and told him they had one on sale. A little while later, while I was at a fundraiser, he text me and says happy mothers day and ask if I can meet him there, he wants to make sure he buys the right machine. I asked around the fundraiser if they could spare me for an hour...and off I went!!

I got a deco 340 embroidery machine!! I am so excited and I have made one flower on it!! Woohoo!! I have a really great hubby!! So I asked for gift certificates from the kids!! Lol! Just had to share!!

Mother's Day present? Al would probably tell me: "You are not MY mother . . . "

Congratulations. Wait until you get some of these embroidery patterns on your quilt tops!!

That is a wonderful surprise. Now, what are you planning for his Father's 'day gift?

May 5th, 2013, 10:05 AM
Thanks everyone, I am excited! I know next to nothing about it or how to use it. The next class at the LQS is on a Friday day..which I cannot do. So I think that, means July or August until I get my tutorial class. There is no way I will be able to wait that long to learn something on it...so gonna have to teach myself until then.

He is a pretty good hubby! I balked at first..noting that I needed to buy DD graduation gift and that we would have two in college in t4 months...but he just said I have the money for her gift and life is too short! Besides you use the heck out of your sewing machine, I am sure it will get used. So....who am I to argue....

Thanks again for the kind comments...I love this community!!
