I broke my embroidery machine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I broke my Singer 1000 embroidery machine this morning. It was not operator error. For some reason it did not tell me the design I picked was too big for the hoop. I was watching it get closer and closer to the edge and I did not stop it soon enough. And when I put a fresh needle in it the shaft is out of whack and I am not sure if I got all the needle pieces out too. So I packed her all up to go to the sewing machine doctor tomorrow. I sandwiched the 2 needle pieces in Scotch tape and put them in an envelope to show the repair man.
I had only 4 squares to finish pseudo quilting in my French Farmhouse quilt. I was using quilt designs from a card. I have a feeling this repair will be costly.......

On a lighter note, I finished another small quilt yesterday. This one is for the Downy "Touch of Comfort". I heard about this through Bingo Bonnie's blog site. This is the second one I have made for them.
Bright colors are not my thing but this quilt rocks!

Sorry to hear about your ME machine. Maybe the cam is out of adjustment and it won't cost too much.
