Lost My Mind.......

Ok - it's official!!  I have lost my mind but I am having so much fun!!  I have been hoping and wishing for an embroidery machine for years and I do mean years!  Well, I took the plunge and ordered one from QVC and I have until January 31 to give it a try and return it if it is not as useful as I believe it will be.  I am so full of excitement - I am like a kid on Christmas and that is no exaggeration.  I have so many ideas on quilts and binkies we can make with embroidery.  This is especially exciting for me because it is very hard for me to do hand embroidery due to severe arthritis.  This will make is so easy for us to personalize our blankets and more.

I have jumped in head first into all of the designs, information, thread and more that you need to know about.  There is so much info out there and so much of it is FREE!!  We have been planning on adding a panel to our quilts for the children to have them signed - now we can add our initials - BPSC - so cool. 
If you have any ideas or suggestions for this new adventure, send them to me at - I would love to hear them.  Now if anybody can give me some ideas on telling my hubby about this new toy.   Do you think he will  notice it??  ;o)
Oh - and thank so very much to Wendy Gratton for sending me free designs and information and also to Louise Gregorek for sending info on stabilizers, threads, etc.  So much to learn - so much fun!!

  1. Oh, I'm dying from laughter pangs. My thought as I was reading the post was, "Oh how nice that hubby let you buy that new toy." Ooops! Can't help you with suggestions on that one girlfriend. You're on your own. But I'm excited about your new toy. Post a picture for us???
