New Toy!

I know I have said before that I won the mother-in-law lottery, but I have to say it again. Look what she gave me this weekend!!

It's a Husqvarna Viking embroidery machine that does pretty much everything except for the dishes. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, she just wanted the new fancy pants model that's out now, so she went for the upgrade. I am not all that into embroidery, but the thing sews a straight line of stitches, which is way more than my old machine does. ;) I'm going to play with it a little more, but I'm pretty sure my old machine is getting donated to the girl at work that desperately wants a machine but can't afford one. I of course got right to work making more baby gifts for Aimee. This time I made a baby sling from this pattern:

If you look in the next picture, you can sort-of see my model is a giant tub of pretzels:

Joe had a light bulb moment here & decided he wants me to make him a baby sling FOR his giant tub of pretzels. In camo fabric. Help me.

Lucky you. What a great machine. You'll probably find things that will be interesting to do with the embroidery functions. When you make Joe his pretzel sling, it can have his initials on it, for example.

Is this your reward for NOT moving to SD? Can I trade for your MIL for a few weeks?

Love the new toy! The sling came out great! I can see how it would be useful for Joe to be able to eat pretzels with both hands...Lol. Guys!

Hee hee. That is *too* funny about Joe and his pretzel sling!

You look so cute with that sling on :) Great job! And thanks for the linky too!
