Look what I can do....



Ta Da....look what I got...


                                       Finally!  My new embroidery machine!

My Christmas and birthday present is finally here!  Yay!  I'm so much happier today!  I know I've got a lot of practicing to do before I get the hang of it, but I just wanted to share!

Also, things are a little better with  "Auburn Guy's" problems.  He and the director of the program talked and decided that he would take a leave of absence for the rest of the year and give himself time to make the decision of whether this is the right program for him.  At least he's not burning his bridges and hopefully will go back in the fall.  Thanks for all your concern, thoughts and prayers.  It's hard being a mom!  Little kids, little problems....big kids, big problems!  And yes, I want to fix it...kiss the boo-boo's and put a band-aid on them...but I have to let him handle this himself.  It's life!




  1. I can't wait to see all the things you make now! Looks like fun!

  2. Oh my gosh what a wonderful gift! I can't wait to see some of your creative projects with it.

    Glad to hear things are a little better with Auburn Guy. Take Care :)

  3. Hi Debbie,

    Just found your blog by way of Shanda's. So glad I did! I see that you live in Decatur. We lived in Madison, AL. for 7 wonderful years. Our youngest daughter was born at Huntsville Hospital. Love the area!

    I can't sew worth anything. My mom was a great seamstress, but it sure didn't rub off on me! Have a terrific Tuesday!

  4. Is that a sewing machine / embroidering machine??? Cause I have been wanting one of those for a long time!!

  5. How cool is that!!!!!!
    I bet you will get a lot of use out of that -I love monogrammed stuff or name stuff!
    Sorry I haven't commented much lately I've beenhaving babies and helping my Bama Girl ith her dramas! They totaled her car but we still don't have one for her-It's all such a pain and of course she had a nice one owner car that had never been wrecked-buying her a used car is scary but with what they settled for and paying for school ourselves thats the only option. So all that to say-I feel your pain-big kids-big problems!
    Are we ever going to get together??? You need to come see me at work someday and see the weaving room- the ladies who quilt and take a basket class and we'll go to lunch.
    Just some thoughts this day for ducks!!!!
    Come meet the big me cos I'm going to work on the smaller me!!!!!!:O)

  6. Wow...sweetie, that is one goodlookin' machine! I can't wait to see what all cool things you do with it! Congrats on the new toy!

  7. I'm soooo jealous. Can I come play with your new toy? :)

  8. Yay!! I'm so happy you finally got an embroidery machine, Debbie!! You will LOVE it!!
    Oh I'm so excited for you... I can't wait to see what you do with it!!
