We are having one more Christmas celebration this weekend. I was glad to have a little extra time to get one more gift done. It was only a pillowcase, and I had already made one, so I knew it wouldn't take very long.
Well, Baby Lock had other ideas. Their slogan of "for the love of sewing" for me has become "O for the love of Pete..."! Melody needs to go in to be checked over.... her safety device seems to be permamently activated.
I literally had 3 minutes or less of sewing left to complete the pillowcase. I was ready to take it over to my friend Julie (find her blog in my "blogs I follow" on the right. She is Joe Tulips) and have her finish it, when I decided to take old Bernina out and see if she was up to the job.
Now I am really glad I still have her, and she won't be going anywhere. Well, maybe she'll go in for a good cleaning and oiling, and a new light bulb. That's my only complaint - I need to use a flashlight to get her threaded.
She's definitely a keeper!
