Christmas Came Early!!!

WoooHooo!! I got the most marvelous, fantastic, stupendous early Christmas gift!! Well, it's actually my Christmas, anniversary and birthday gift....but that's just a technicality. Here is what I got this week:


An Elna Quilters Dream II!! I am so excited I can't tell you. I have sewn on a cheapo Brother or a vintage Singer (which actually sews very well, but had no features) for so long that I think I am in Heaven with this new baby! She has 200 stitches! It's going to take a while to try all those out! Plus, all the feet that came with her! She also came with a nice padded bag to carry her places and I got a nice extension table for half price. Plus.........when I send in my registration card, Elna will send me a Maderia thread chest valued at $199.00............60 spools of thread! It's like getting another $199 off the price of the machine!

I'm telling you that I won't be doing any house cleaning today! Today, I am sewing on my new baby!!

See y'all later!! Make it a great day whatever you do!

She's a beauty, Jan! Have you named her yet? I like that little cabinet on the side. Can you keep the extra feet, needles, etc. in there?

JanJ said...

Thank you, Irene!! I am soooooo happy with this machine and plan to be cranking out the quilts this next year! Look out!!

JanJ said...

Thank you, Sarah!! I have a really nice 'Santa", so it wasn't too hard to get him to say yes. :)

JanJ said...

Thanks, Sheryl! Yes, I can keep the extra feet (and they are all marked exactly where they go) and needles in there. Cool, huh? I haven't named her yet........will think on that.
