Santa did a good job this year thanks to my rad sister-in-law. She planted a little seed in my mom's ear that this was something a crafty girl might like to have. I think I have the best sister-in-law ever basically (and not just because she knows how to plant good gift seeds in my mom's ear-she's actually really fantastic anyway)
I freaked out when I opened the box since I've never mentioned one to my mom before and I couldn't figure out how she even knew what it was in order to think to get it for me. I believe I've entered every bloggity giveaway for one of these because I would never really allow myself to entertain the luxurious notion of actually buying one. There are just too many other more practical things I feel like we need to buy so I never have even really contemplated putting it on my wish list.
Now my dilemma is hooking everything up in a non cluttered way in my little studio corner. My Bernina embroidery machine uses a computer and so does the Cameo. Unfortunately my Bernina software isn't made to work on any Windows operating system after XP (which no one sells computers that run that anymore) and the computer that I've used thus far is so darn old and ssssllllllooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
I'd rather not use it. I found a website that said how I can still do it on our Toshiba laptop that runs Vista but so far I haven't been able to get it to work. Blah.
But I'm really excited to get to playing with it!
