I'm sure your all wondering why it's a sad day for a PIG???
The Pig is, my Project in a Grocery Sack
The sad is, that ole Moosie gave up on me!
It's true, my favorite machine in the world bit the dust!
It's so tragic!
My Bernina 220 was just stitching away and started to make terrible noises.
Thank goodness I stopped and took the quilt I was free motioning out before the head locked up. I would have been a very unhappy camper if I had had to cut the quilt out of it!
She always looked out for me, that wonderful machine!
It's at the sewing machine hospital, but it's not looking good. The part has been on back order for over a month, and they don't make this machine any more!
I'm so sad!
I did manage to get this PIG done first.
Ahhh, Alaska memories from fishing days!
I even found a thread that went perfect with it, in my stash!
to try to break out of my box and try new
things! We will see how long this lasts.
Psssst...I haven't told my hubby yet, but I bought a new Bernina last week at the sewing expo. It's not that I really needed another machine, but I so loved my Bernina. Heck once I get the moose skin ordered and put on it, he will never even know it's not the old machine! LOL!! A girl's gotta do, what a girls gotta do!
Update: I have had a lot of requests as to where I got the "skin" for my machine. Bernina offers them for their 200 series machines thru their website, but they are down to just a 215 in that series. They don't seem to be available or other models. I have a lot of no-reply bloggers asking. If your on Google + your likely a no reply blogger. I've had the same issue, gave up trying to fix it, and went back to the regular Google, myself. Just make sure you put and email addy in your comment so I can get back to you! :-)
