|Berni, when she first arrived|
She is an older gal, built in 1979. She was given to me by a dear friend whose aunt had died. The machine had been well cared for and I used it for a few months before deciding it might be time for Berni to have some time off and a tune up. Turns out that mechanically, she is doing great. Her electronics, however, need a bit of help. I called to check on her this morning. They are waiting for a couple of parts. Soon she will be back home.
"So, I was just wondering when my Bernina will be ready," I said.
"We are expecting the part in at the end of this week," said Fred, the sewing machine guru. "This is the best machine ever made. Ever. They were at their peak when this was made. Mechanically, it is perfect. It needs a bit of work in the electronics."

"Oh, yeah! Right now you were only working on half power," said Fred.
"Whaaaat? It goes faster than my new machine!"
"Yeah, I know, crazy, right?"
I really miss Berni, and I can't wait until we are creating together again. I just hope she will be patient with me as I struggle to catch up. After all, I am 18 years older than she is.
In the meantime, I am working on some presents, so I can't take photos. But, I will take them as they are completed and the post them after they are gifted.
