New Toy for Christmas

It was worth taking a days leave today - I've just unpacked my new Pfaff GrandQuilter which arrived a  few minutes ago from Sewing Machine World. I got a  good trade-in  for my Bernina Virtuosa 160 and as the remainder of the price is just about paid for by bonus of selling a quilt, using Helen's 'Girl Maths' it's free!!
I've still got my Bernina Activa 125 which has as many fancy stitches as I need and is a good size for workshops so not too many regrets at handing over the 160 which had a lot of functions I barely used. It also occurred to me that this was free too as I bought it about 12 year ago with Norwich Union.  'windfall shares'.

Now off for some lunch and to read the manual. Looking forward to putting  it through its paces over the Christmas period (I'm off  24th Dec to 3 January, 3 days of which I'll be on my own as Ian will be working)

Oooooooo lucky you!! Have fun. I would love to know what you think of it when you've given it a test run.
