Some Boxes for Me

A few weeks back, I put a special something on lay-by at Moonee Ponds Sewing Centre. Today I went to make the second-last payment, and ask them to place the order. As she was processing my payment, Evelyn said, "I've got some news for you about your machine." Slight pause as I wonder if there's a problem? "That's it behind you!"

I turned around and there it was!
My Sweet Sixteen! Actually that's not all of it - its table is in another box in a different part of the shop, and the TruStitch is on back-order. Evelyn placed the machine order last week, as she was worried that the special deal HQ have at the moment might mean stocks could be running low. So here it is, a week earlier than I was expecting to see it.

Today I only gave the box a pat and took its photo. But in a week or so I'll be driving over to collect it, and in just under three weeks I should actually have somewhere to set it up. Stay tuned for that excitement!


  1. something like all your christmases coming at once seems the appropriate thing to say. Have you lots of unquilted tops on standby?

  2. Have fun playing with your new toy in the weeks to come. Will be interested to hear and see all about it.

  3. Congratulations. Interested to know if you find it easy to use. Keep us posted. Help me justify buying one, although the new boat and kayak in the yard plus the.!?@#%& motorbike help. :)

  4. Oh WOW, Oh WOW, Oh WOW!!! How very exciting to know it's mostly there & will be home & set up soon! Let me know if you need a few extra tops to practice on, though the shipping would probably be a fortune.

  5. Good for you, I'm sure you will love it.
