Merry Early Christmas to me!

Today, I treated myself to an early Christmas present!! See, I sew in my bedroom that is roughly 12' by 20' and I watch the TV that is on the other side of the room. I finally got tired of squinting at the TV from my sewing table. I measured it and it was a 24" TV! An old monster!

So I have been watching ads and thought I might go find a flat screen on Black Friday, but I found a pretty good deal this week and I decided that a few more hours of sleep is worth getting a slightly smaller TV.

Here is it! A 32" Sylvania! The picture is awesome so far. I have it all set up and am able to watch my DVR'ed shows.

And I can see the screen from my table without any obstructions or a glare from the ceiling light that can give me migraines. WOO HOO!!

I do need to see about raising it up off the DVR a little or moving the DVR to the side so that the DVR doesn't overheat. It will have to do for tonight.

Maxie was a little excited about the excitement of the new TV, too! He wanted me to have his favorite toy.

I think you should ask your wonderful neighbor to mount it on the wall! We have a 32" in our bedroom as well, mounted on the wall. Something to think about, and merry christmas to you early!

Merry early Christmas to you too - I have a TV beside my sewing machine too, helps the time go by when doing the same thing over and over and over! Aren't those flat screens just great!!

How nice!!! We have a 32" and I love it! I'm sure your little doggies will enjoy it too! I'm sitting here at mom's and hers is a 52" and it is just too big, she doesn't even like it. Enjoy your new tv!!!

That's great! My sewing room tv died a couple months ago and I have been going without for the time...may not replace it but we'll see. Hope you enjoy yours and shout out to BBT!

Very nice....wait? What's that burning smell? Overcooked turkey? no....it's your sewing machine going so fast it's "sah-mokin'" Now that you don't have to squint, you're going to be sewing 100 miles an hour during Law and Order! Congrats for being on the "nice" list this year!
