    My DH is such a keeper! Last night, he not only ordered me a Tutto travel case for my Bernina, but insisted since he had a 15% off coupon and $1 shipping, that I needed a small, just for light sewing, machine. He said "you are so into sewing and when your Bernina is embroidering, you can still be doing what you love!" (At the time, my machine was working on embroidering a scarf for our oldest DD's bday which took 90 minutes to stitch out). It is a little Brother CE4000, and actually has some nice features, like slightly larger (7mm) decorative stitches. The reviews are favorable. I tried to tell him that it was ok, I was good with my beloved Nina (Bernina), but he insisted, so...soon I will have a new little sweetie!

    I am so luck! :)

    OH man Oh man! I wish mine would do that. But he tolerates my sewing machines(5) just as I tolerate his motorcycles (3). :-D

    I love having two machines. I can piece/sew on one while the other is doing embroidery.

    That's funny because I also have a "Nina" and a little Brother I bought just to take to classes and sewing meetings, because it's so light weight.

    Cool! By the look of your Avatar we might have a little more in common...we are both the human pets of at least one happy pup!

    So the little brother works well for you? I am anxious to put him through his paces.

    How wonderful!!! I should have bought a Tutto. I got something else to haul my Bernina around in but I am not totally happy with it.

    I should haul my old Pfaff out to use when I do embroidery. I just done use the embroidery unit that much.

    Well, we had been talking about getting the tote for my machine, but we had just gotten the tote for my embroidery module and I was dragging my feet, because I felt we should wait until we recuperated from Christmas. He really showered me with so many things that I had wanted...EQ6, a quilting calculator, a netbook to use when I take my embroidery module on the rode...so much! But he saw it for a good price and had a 15% off coupon, then saw the little Brother (he had been looking at small lightweight machines while he was grocery shopping on Saturday (I was finishing up some dresser scarves for out son) and well, the rest is history. Bottom line is...he spoils me shamelessly! :-D
    I try to spoil him and return the favor, made him a quilt for Christmas which he has been snuggling under, and other things, but....Yep..he is definitely a keeper!!!

    Oh BTW, got the Tutto tote for my emb mod because the canvas one that came with it just didn't provide much protection and since I take it to classes, I was soooo afraid I would damage it. He took the initiative there too, researching what might be the best. He is an electronics person and understands the value of protecting the high tech equipment.

    Jealous here. I wish mine was that thoughtful, but he did put up new shelves for my sewing room, so I can really complain
