    A little bit ago, I posted a pic of a Singer Futura that my DH got from my Bernina dealer for a song! (He wanted me to have a back up embroidery machine). I was tickled with it, but little did I know that while he was there he negotiated with the dealer to trade in my Bernina 730 and my Juki and frame to get me a....Bernina 830 Limited Edition for my birthday! He managed to get a whole bundle with the Grace frame, groovy boards and the Jumbo hoop! I still feel like I am going to wake up and it will have been a dream. I feel kinda guilty, but, I sure am loving my wonderful new machine. (We both still work, the kids are on their own, and DH says with the deal he got, it is the time to do it before we retire.) Goodness I love that man!!!!!!!!

    So here is a picture of my new toy, her name is Ruby. She and I put together the runner in the picture to help us get acquainted.

    Thanks for letting me share.

    Ruby and our first project

    He is a wonderful man, been my love for 35 years!
    I got Ruby a few days before my birthday and was home sick on my birthday. Felt so miserable, couldn't even play with Ruby, so I just sat in my rocking chair, snuggled under a quilt and gazed lovingly at her :( But we are making up for lost time now. :thumbup:
