It has been a crazy stressful week at work this week. I ended up working 24 hours between Thursday and Friday. I was so fried that I could not knit or stitch a single stitch. Not one. Those of you who know me well know that is unusual as these things are my stress relief. It was just too much towards the end of the week. All I could do was crawl into bed and do some mindless surfing on the computer. This is simply the nature of the mortgage business and while I'm used to it, it still can be exhausting. On the other side of the coin, I hate it when it's slow!
But the week was not a total loss. Look what I brought home with me yesterday!
When the dealer brought the box out of the back room, my mouth just opened. I had no idea they'd have it in inventory and was prepared to wait a couple of weeks. I know I had not completed all my research but a good deal was too much to resist. I had been to the dealer several times and G went with me Thursday night. He said for me to go ahead and get the 820 as "you'll never need to buy another machine again". I couldn't justify the expense for my current skill level and I'd still need another machine to take to classes. So I went back yesterday and finalized my decision to purchase a Bernina 440QE. Oddly enough, it was the machine I fell in love with last year when I first started quilting and began reading blogs.
