For a moment, I thought it was Monday!!! But its not! :~( lol

This is the final teaser pick for my Doll Quilt Swap partner, Jenn.   I will post the real picture up after she has received it and loved it (i hope.. wink, wink)  So Monday should be the day, but more than likely I will post on Wednesday....  
On another note.... I have been busy spoiling myself.  Yep, you know how it goes, get a tax refund and go shopping.. isn't that how it is supposed to go???  LOL    I was responsible and put 1/3 into savings first payed some bills and now to spoil myself.  I did spoil my son a little as well... but for me, I bought a Zune HD 16GB.  It's like the Ipod, but a lot cheaper.  Talk about fun!  I am still learning all the features and how to use it but what fun!  In an age of Ipods, Ipads and all those fun gadgets, it is time I got with the game.  So with the help of my trusty BF, I was guided towards my purchase...that was fun, but the real treat was my new sewing machine!!!  Yeah!!!   
No, I didn't splurge and get a real pricey one with all the bells and whistles.. I already have something like that.. my favorite Janome 6600P, but it is sooo heavy and to lug it to classes, retreat and charity sewing days, well, it was just a bit cumbersome.  So I got myself the side kick, Janome 760 Platinum. Did I mention it was on sale for 1/2 price?!! woohoooo!   A big shout out to The Cottage Rose in Marion, Iowa!  It only weighs 12 pounds!  So lightweight, has the needle threader and needle-down features and more stitches on it than I will use.  And now, when I take my other machine in for service... which it is over due for...  I won't be without a machine!  YEAH ME!!!!!  giggles
I hope everyone has a blessed day!!  Lets go out and make a difference!!!
