I've been hyperventilating for 2 days now. Saturday I went downstairs
for a couple of hours to quilt. When I came up, David told me my
phone had been ringing off the hook. Turned out my Mom had been
trying to reach me.
To make a long story short, she is now the proud owner of a Viking
Designer SE. And I am about to inherit her Designer 1 and software
and some embroidery designs. (You can see why I'm hyperventilating.)
I cannot believe it. I have a Viking Lily that I love and adore (does
anyone know if all her feet will fit the Designer 1?). And a
reasonably price Brother embroidery-only machine. I like it too
considering how little embroidery I actually do.
When the Platinums first came out, I briefly lusted after one until I
saw the price. I've been happy as a clam with the machines I do have
since then. It has not entered my head for years that I need/want
another machine and now suddenly one has fallen into my lap.
She called again Sunday to tell me she has it all packed up and ready
to go. She briefly thought she might bring it with her on Thursday
when we go to the quilt retreat. But she'll be driving with 2 other
ladies, so the car will be pretty packed. So I probably won't
actually get the machine, etc. for about 2 weeks.
I'm stunned. Just absolutely stunned.
