My Bernina 185 has been with me for so long and now it needs to go and get checked out! It turns off then comes back on its own, hmmm sounds like a short somewhere to me. It has to go back to where I got it East of Versailles, darn, darn, darn-it!
We can't afford a new machine, and I truly don't want one, this machine is like a part of me kind of knows what I want and what I'm thinking if an inanimate object had a brain or a mind. Anyway. Now if only the fix it dude would get my "Dressmaker" done so I could bring it home!
I just called Mr. Jim and he hasn't begun yet. He had a lady come in with a surger who was in a panic, hmm. Maybe I/we shouldn't get to a point i/we can't function without our machines? It's so difficult for me to not be able to do what I want when I want, now I am sounding so selfish and self centered I may be sick.
Today this quilter is needing to loose the "I" in her life and chill out. One thing for sure the fabric will be there tomorrow unless the fairies come and sew tonight! Or what ever picks up the slack for this quilter.....not!
It's Friday which means nothing other than my weekends are busier than when I worked full time....sheeesh! There is "no-rest-for-the-wicked" which is probably why the gremlins decided to mess with the Bernina. The battle has just begun a friend gave me a "Spartan" that belonged to his mother. Jr. and I cleaned it and "greased" and I do mean "GREASED" who knew? It has a kind of "dip-stick" that has to have grease put on it thank God for my honey who knows about greasing machinery.
This machine had been in a storage unit so long it has grown hair or dust-fuzz! Now it comes out of the old cabinet which has now legs, they rotted away, well 2 of them rotted half away.
Wish me luck people the goal today is setting it up and using it "to feed my addiction!"
