“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

Didn’t have a chance to get it out of the box (the ORIGINAL BOX, perfectly intact and repacked) last night.  Long story.

Well, due to an increasing feeling of suckiness throughout the day (headache, queasy, light-sensitive and generally crappy), I didn’t do a whole lot of playing with the Futura.  I did open it up, and install the software.

From what I did see, I am very, very happy.  Not only were ALL the pieces there, but they threw in a lot of extras.  I knew in advance that they were going to do this – the woman who had originally bought it called me and asked me if I would like all the accessories she had bought – she asked only $30 for $70 worth of stuff (and included the receipts!).  Hard to pass up, really.  This included a bajillion different feet – one of them was a hem-rolling attachment, invaluable for making veils.  And a cording foot.  I am one happy Ebayer, indeed.

The machine was, as she said, completely unused.  It still had the packing tape over the platform to hold the compartment doors down. 

Today, there will be a short trip to Hobby Lobby for some necessary expendibles.  This weekend, we fire this baby up and see what she can do…

    I’m even more jealous. I’m taking my poor Brother out for a bit of rough fun this weekend. Oh — and Zack will be there, too. If we can get him to bathe in something other than Ax.
