Thank you so much to Gwen, Linda, Elaina and Mamafitz for talking back to my confession last week! I asked what everyone got for Christmas and, like me, these folks got some special sewing gifts. :)
Gwen got a new yarn swift and ball winder - allowing her to replace her older model (aka her husband!) Thanks to her FIL, Linda was able to get a binding attachment for her new machine. Elaina, like me, got a fabric gift card, and she also got a dress form.
Finally, Mamafitz's puppy helped her get a coverstitch machine for Christmas. Now you are probably wondering, "How did a PUPPY help her get a coverstitch machine?" Well, her puppy chewed the power cord on her serger, forcing her to go to the dealer to get it fixed, where she found an amazing deal on the coverstitch machine! You see - her puppy had her best interests at heart from the beginning! ;)
It sounds like a wonderful Christmas for all. I can only infer that Santa has a soft spot for sewing! :)
Thank you to everyone who shared their Christmas stories! And thanks also to Mary for the advice on using MS Paint to prevent Blogger from flipping my pictures! That has been driving me crazy!
