    I had a conference at a medical center about 45 minutes from our home today. Parking is really a pain so I asked DH if he could drop me off before going to work and then pick me up. Well he decided to take a day off and do some running around. Well, this is what he had for me when he picked me up. It is a Singer Futura CE 250 sewing/embroidery machine. I had just told him I wished I had another embroidery machine so I could embroider while sewing on my Bernina or, like at Christmas when I am making free standing lace ornaments, embroider on both at the same time. Well, he found this machine at our Bernina dealers, taken on trade-in. It is about a year or so old and her wanted to sell it...so he got it for...now get this...$75!!! After a little argument with her (her name is Fantasia) over thread and an error message, she is now working beautifully with sewing and fancy stitches. The only draw back is she is missing the embroidery foot...go figure. We can get one really cheap, so once I get that, I will check out the embroidery feature.
    Isn't my DH a keeper? (Just celebrated 35 years of marriage).

    He is totally awesome...he seems to take such joy in bringing me such happiness with my quilting stuff. I still think he should learn how to quilt!!! ;-)

    The machine is in great shape, doesn't look like it was ever used.
