Nope, the chickens are still in my basement. Nope, the garden spot hasn’t been touched. Nope, I haven’t lost weight. Yep, there’s still rain in the forecast. So, why the celebration?
Look who’s home!
Sorry, I didn’t think to take the picture before most of the Blood Orange Mimosa had been consumed. But, getting my sewing machine home from the shop was reason to celebrate, don’t you think?
The Bernina repairman called me Thursday or Wednesday, can’t remember . . and said all she needed was a new light switch. The on/off switch had never worked so the machine had been on for 18 or 20 years and the problem was that the case was on too tight and the switch couldn’t move. He fixed that, cleaned it, oiled it and said I should get another 18 or 20 years out of her. That was music to my ears! While at the shop to get the machine, I did play around with the 430 and that is one fine machine. It’s a perfect fit and if I needed a machine, I would have come home with that one today. But, I don’t need a machine.
Joe did suggest that I not wait 18 or 20 years before bringing the machine back for a good cleaning and oiling. I figure if it costs me about $70 for cleaning and oiling once every 18 years, that’s not a bad return for the amount of sewing I do, right?
I do love this machine and am do happy to have it home!
