I got my income tax return a month or so ago. I splurged and bought myself some new glasses and am having new lenses put in the old frames.
I bet you thought I was going to say I bought something fun...didn't you? Don't lie...you really thought I splurged.
Well, I DID buy something fun! I bought a Brother 450Q. Q standing for QUILT! A machine that will make it easier for me to quilt with! I'm not rich so I went with a model that was affordable, but has some good amenities.
I picked the machine up yesterday. I had given the guy a check for $500 to hold the machine. Then went back to pay him the balance. He mistakenly charged me the full amount, then immediately reversed the transaction. Too late, damage done. I have no money for a while, until this debacle gets straightened out. I went and talked to my banker today, she assured me that they would be waving all overdraft fees if any come up, because of the mistake. Way to ruin a perfectly good prize!
Oh well. Now, if I can find a good place to set up my machine here at Dad's, I will be happily making quilted squares until I get the hang of it. Then I can put them all together until I have a nice sized quilted as I went quilt. What fun! I can't wait!
