My Precious, Bernina is in the shop.
It hit the 2 million stitch mark, and then it gives me a little icon that I need to pet my baby, tuck it in and put it in the shop for some special attention.
I have a back up. An older Bernina.
So far, it hates me.
I can't get the bobbin tension right.
My seams are all over the place.
I am screwing up blocks left and right, and seam ripping my heart out.
|Seam Ripping Tools|
There was some crying and some throwing of fabric, but that isn't very effective in relieving stress.
I haven't completed a single block IN A WEEK.
Today I take the machine apart and clean it really well.
Put in a new bobbin with new thread. Give it a good pep talk.
And start all over.
Again. The wine is standing by.
IN THE MEAN TIME
SO YOU HAVE A BETTER DAY THAN ME,
A GIVE AWAY!!!!!
I have a fat 8th bundle from Oakshott Cottons to give away! YAY! I may enter myself!
My Giveaway is from the Oakshott Ruby Red collection.
A Collection of 12 fat 8ths which all share a Ruby Red Warp.
|The Actual Bundle you will WIN!|
What is a Warp you may ask? As I did (no, it isn't from Star Trek, which is the first thing I think of with the word 'warp').
Some things we should know!
Michael at Oakshott Fabrics is super friendly and will answer any of your email questions promptly.
This is a beautiful bundle, and I can't wait to pass it to some lucky someone. These colors work so well together, they are dark and delicious!
I am working on my own Oakshott quilt top - which has come to a halt until the machine situation is rectified or my Precious is returned from the Bernina Dr.
Rules! (there must be rules or anarchy will happen, dogs and cats will marry, utter chaos)
