Birthday gift for this and all future birthdays

Look what I just took out of the box.  A new Bernina sewing machine, the 750 Quilters Edition.  I put my name on the wait list a few weeks back.  Miracle of miracles it actually came into the Bernina shop on my birthday!  I was so excited.

We were leaving the next day to Arizona for Thanksgiving, so Glen put the box back into the car and we brought it with us.  I just couldn't wait to play with it and I knew my sister would enjoy playing as well.  Its permanent home will be in Provo and a Roberts sewing cabinet awaits.

My Bernina 830 is now 30 years old.  I still love that machine.  It will now get to stay in warm Arizona and rest from the monthly trips to Utah.  Based on that machine's longevity, I expect the new 750 to get me through the rest of my life.  It better based on price :)
