I'm Sooooooo Excited

I'm so excited...that I just can't hide it...I'm about to loose control...and I think I like it...come on ladies, sing along with me.........well, at least let me explain...
My kids were all in California last week attending a family reunion. Before they left, my youngest asked if I would water their yard while they were gone...well, of course I would.
We, my youngest and I, are just starting a mystery BOM at American Quilting. The first class was held this past Saturday and since I have to go by the quilt shop to get to her house, I decided to kill two birds with one stone, or maybe more than two;)
I also decided that I would get ready for work at her house and just leave from there instead of going back home.
About the time I hopped on my bike to head to the quilt shop and then on to her house, it started to sprinkle a little...and I'm thinking...this isn't bad, in fact it might just cool me's been quite hot here lately.
When I was about a quarter of the way there, the sprinkle was more like a down pour. I decided to duck into A-1 Sewing Machine Shop to look around and let this cloud burst pass.
As I got off my bike, I noticed that there was a 50% OFF sign in the window...
I wondered.....what could be 50% off in this store???
I should interject here that I've had my eye on a certain sewing machine for several months, but it's way out of my price range.
Anyway, I walked in and right away saw the sales lady that I had talked to several times before when I had gone in to drool over said machine...
I asked, "what's 50% off?" and her reply was...
I think I was in shock, because I pointed to 'my' machine and asked,
"is that machine on sale?" and she said yes.
I asked if I could put it on lay-away and she said 'yes'
DOUBLE YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Would I be able to finally bring 'my' machine home???
Well, I filled out the paperwork and gave my money to the sales lady
...and this baby...

...will be coming home with me very soon!!!
I'm soooooooo excited
She's a Janome 6600
...the very same machine that Dana gave away recently. I wasn't lucky enough to win that one, and I never dreamed that I would just happen to be in the right place at the right time to get this one, especially for 50% off!!!
My new family member is going to need a name befitting her......
Here's the deal...
I'm going to have a little give-away;););)
It's a one shot deal...
Leave me a comment...with a way to get in touch with you...telling me what name you think would fit her and why. If I choose yours, I will be mailing you a package of goodies...all sewing related.
So, get your suggestions in...and spread the word...
Starting now...On your mark, get set, GO...
I will be choosing a name by this coming Friday...July 17th.
Good Luck to all
and thanks;)
