OK - so it's only a secret from my mother...

I am 56 years old. I still have to keep secrets from my mother! If she finds out I am buying another sewing machine a lecture will begin. I made my sister promise not to tell. (Actually, I did a pretty good job of keeping the Janome a secret until she went up into my studio and saw that one!)

Enough of my relationship with my mother...Since so many of you left comments, I have decided to do a surprise give away!
There were 11 comments as of one minute ago. I used a random number picker and the winner is Bethany! Since this give away is just as much a surprise to me as it is to you, I have no idea what I will send you. Fat quarters? Notions? Storage container? Hmmmm...

Bethany, please email me your mailing address and I will send your surprise. Thanks for reading!!


  1. Quick, throw a big folded up piece of batting over it when she comes and tell her it's a pile of quilting supplies if she asks.

    You are a big girl, Suzan. Tell her you paid all your bills for the month and you can have anything you WANT!(Then RUN!!!)

    I know what you mean. It's frustrating, but I do understand.

    I can't wait to hear about your new purchase!

  2. That's so funny that you still keep secrets!!!

    Congratulations to Bethany too...that is so nice of you to do a giveaway when no one even knew it!!!

    Love have to post new baby picks of it when you get it!!!


  3. Congrats on the new machine. Now just tell us which Janome? I'm thinking the 6600 and if it is youre going to love it.

  4. My mom never says a word on what I do or buy but somehow I still feel funny by telling her or showing her.

    Can't wait to she what machine you decide on getting...

  5. I still have to keep those kinds of secrets too - but not from my mom. We only exchange cards - & that is a recent event. (She quit talking to me in 1995, Jacob's birth brought her back into contact...)

    Guess who taught me how to hold a grudge? It's an awful trait & I fight it tooth & nail!

  6. Well, did I miss it? WHAT machine are you buying????????I get ya on the mom and secrets thing. Why ruffle her feathers, which in turn ruffles yours, when not necessary!!!

  7. This is funny. My mom used to trade in her bernina every few years. An amish guy in Lancaster County would sell them to her. He was a dealer and would convert the new berninas to treddle for the amish quilters. Anyway they ranged in color and type and my dad never noticed. He'd have had a fit knowing she was getting a new machine every few years. Plus she'd buy a spare every now and then. Who can have too many machines? I have 5 shhh. This so reminded me of that situation. Funny stuff.
