Merry Christmas to me!

I received an unexpected Christmas gift today from my wonderful husband.............a new sewing machine!!!!  A Baby Lock Symphony!
I did take him to the local Baby Lock dealer to browse, but I didn't expect to walk away with a new machine!  I have been looking at different brands this past month, mostly just compiling research and noting prices.  I thought maybe in another year or two I could talk him into a new machine.  See, I've only been sewing for a year, but my current machine (a Brother CS6000i) is getting tired.  It's currently at the doctor.  I really wanted something more suited for quilting, especially free motion work.  Amy and Tracey both have this machine and love it.  There's nothing better than getting a review from someone you know!  Apparently, the dealer near me has won some national award for the #1 dealer in the country for the past 4 years so I guess that was why she was able to give me such a deal--over 50% off MSRP.  Even hubby thought it was a good deal!  I have the best hubby in the world--even if I did have to promise to stop fabric purchases for a while!  I promised not to start sewing again until after Christmas so I will have to content myself with the manual. :) 

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope Santa brings you all lots of fabric!
