Safely home

I’m not the only one in the family to have been on holiday.

My beloved sewing machine and her little friend have been in the repair shop for a while, getting some attention.  Until a couple of days ago, I feared that this extended stay might prove to be terminal but I’m glad to say, all is well again.

They both came home with their names attached in an appropriate way.

So, the good old reliable stand-by, which worked perfectly the minute it was taken from its case where it had spent the last five or six years, will take another extended leave.

Now that I’ve been reminded that even Bernina sewing machines don’t last forever, I will take a while and consider the options for a new one. However, intriguing and inspiring as this new model might be, I doubt that I’ll be seriously considering it. You did notice the price, didn’t you?

Can it really be September?

Getting back into the groove
