Many Happy Returns

So what, exactly, does that mean? If it means being happy while you return things, its ridiculous! I won't be returning any of our Christmas purchases, that's for sure. We decided to buy a big gift for each other this year, rather than little things. What could be bigger than this???

Okay, I know it's silly looking, but it's perfect for us. We currently have, among other vehicles, a Toyota Tacoma with a camper shell and a Subaru Impreza 2-door sedan that belonged to my mother-in-law. We really don't need two run around vehicles, especially after January 23, when Dennis retires. So we combined the two. There are many advantages and no, the fact that it's turbo and goes really fast has nothing to do with it! *smirk*

Then, although not really for Christmas, Dennis traded in one of his PR600's for a PR1000.  We got a great deal on it from Windy Moon Quilts in Reno, so good that we just couldn't refuse. So this machine has come to live in our yurt. It has some really great features, the best of which for Dennis is the ability for the cap frame to turn 270 degrees. He embroiders a lot of baseball caps, so this will save him tons of time.

Since Dennis got a brand new PR, I just had to give Mike Sullivan, the owner, a hard time. I've been sewing on a ball chair, but instead of helping my back, I think it was making things worse. He had these chairs there and sold us one of them for less than half the asking price. I love it! The back support is perfect.

And check this out...reminds me of a piano bench. I have no idea what I'll put in it.

How was your holiday? Anything special planned for New Year's? We'll be lucky to stay up that late!
