~So Close!~

For almost a year now, I have been saving my pennies for a new sewing machine. The Husqvarna Viking Emerald, to be exact. I don't even know how to say "Husqvarna" but that's ok. :-P

I was saving for the 203 model, which has a few more features than the 183 model. However, I went in to a machine dealer yesterday to get another look at machines and make sure they were still the same price as last year. The owner told me that Viking had discontinued the 203 model, but he might be able to get it for me. Well, come to find out, the features that I am most interested in on the 203 (walking foot and extension platform) are only an additional $70. The other features that the 203 has are not worth the extra $200 that the machine costs.

So guess what? I have an additional $50-75 to save and then I can waltz into the store and get my new machine. I may not literally waltz while in the store but you can bet I will be waltzing at home when I get my new machine!!!
