MY NEW TOY

Last week my hubby was in Calgary visiting our son.  He works at an Apple store there.  Hubby phoned me and asked if I would like him to stop at a quilt shop and pick out something for my upcoming birthday. Ummmm ya!

Well, this is what he brought back. Surprise, surprise!


I was shocked!  I thought this was a bit of an extravagant toy, but he assured me it's not a toy, it's a tool.

Ooooh.





It's kinda fun : )  We went out and got a case for it, and now I suppose I need a bigger purse.............

Hope your week-end includes some stitching. Mine will be spent figuring out my new toy tool.

Enjoy it! My dad got one a week ago and was a little intimidated by it at first but now he's never more than a few inches from it. Total convert. I do occasionally have to function as tech support/"How do I do this" girl but he's having fun with it.

Lily's Quilts has started doing a tutorial series for a drawing app she uses to plan quilts. If you haven't seen it, check it out.
