First of all, I need to tell you about my new toy.
I love my new toy.
My new toy is a Bernina special edition 765 sewing machine.
My old machine quit working. Again.
So I finally decided it was time.
Time for a new one.
Brand, Spankin' new.
It's my 3rd sewing machine, but my first new one.
I love my new sewing machine.
I like the rose gold better, but don't tell her that. In fact, I'm naming her Rose in honor of her beautiful color. But you can also call her Rosie.
I have this theory that the Bernina company was trying to come up with a creative way to sell more of the 770's. So they changed the silver part to rose gold, called it a Special Edition, and sold it with a promotional deal.
The deal was this: it came free with either the "quilters bundle" (which then really made it identical to the 770) or an Embroidery unit. Well, about the only things I'm willing to dust off my shabby math skills for is sewing and quilting. So I did the math. Because I already had the walking and 1/4 inch feet, the only thing I needed to make it the quilters edition was the Bernina Stitch Regulator (BSR) which was $899. The Embroidery unit was $2,000. I hope you know which one I chose to be included and which one I bought (with the 20% off deal you get on everything you buy the day you buy your machine)
So I am a happy new sewing machine owner. I hope that means I will be whipping out projects like nobody's business.... but if you've read my blog before, you'll know that's not likely.
I DID, however, finish this Texas Flag pillow sham to go with my sons quilt that I made him...4 years ago...
