BabyEll, my Babylock Ellure embroidery machine. I bought it used on a fluke and wow! am I ever having fun with it! You know, it's all Dianna's fault! I went to her house so she could help me make a project with her machine and what did she do? She taught me how to use it and love it! Well, I wasn't gonna actually buy a machine. They are out of my price range... but then... perusing Ebay one day... you know it... I found one that a lady was selling to upgrade to her newest Baby and what did my dear hubby say? Bid on it... So I did in the last few minutes and Voila! I got an embroidery machine. You know... it's not the machine itself that is expensive... well, yes they are... but... then ya' gotta buy all the threads in all the colors and then the stabilizers and the bobbins and the projects. Plus I got this cool set of drawers with a wood top to store it all away. I can slide it in the slot beside my computer cabine and then out any time I'm ready to 'stitch'!..... and then.... the patterns... oh, my goodness! Yes, Dianna and I are a lot alike... we look for all the freebies online and use them, but there are always those -- "ya just gotta have". So here we go... sewing, quilting, hand embroidery and machine embroidery. What will be next? I'm afraid to venture a guess!
