The other day I mentioned to my husband that "one of these days" I wanted a professional embroidery machine and was thinking of starting a sewing business. Then yesterday, he suggested that I sell some of my stock and buy the machine now as my stocks are not growing much. He went on to say that he did not think that it was a good idea to start a business since my health is still precarious but I should buy the machine for my own happiness. I asked him about the future and he assured me that I am well provided for should he die before me. At age 74, he thinks about death a lot. He thinks that I should enjoy the machine now. So, I am looking at the Babylock Valiant (10 needle, single head) embroidery machine. I talked with my dealer and we have come to an agreement on price with all of the goodies included. Before I go to purchase the machine, I do want to talk to our CPA about how much money I will need for income taxes since our income will increase when I sell my stocks. I will meet with him around the first of May after tax season is over. Right now, I am very excited. My dealer offered 0% financing but I told him that I wanted to pay cash for the machine so he's okay with that. This is a big, big purchase but one of my dreams will come true. I'm walking on Cloud 9.
