My Bernina 730 US Record ~Thank You Granma!!

Today I was able to get someone with two-working hands to load the sewing machine packages into the car. Drove 30 minutes to the only authorized Bernina dealer in a three city reach, and saw my sewing machine for the first time as the tech unwrapped it!

It's beautiful! The tech was confused at first, asking if it was the embriodery model and I being only able to tell him it was heavy, had the machine, and a case. When he opened the box, the sound he made would give you the impression that HE was getting a present! Apparently Bernina started reusing numbers after awhile, and in the background of the far shot you can see a new 830. I saw the new 730, a 2grand model with more bells and whistles a beginner seamstress could ever hope to understand!

He's going to strip it down, inventory and clean the parts, check the oils and such, and then I'll be able to start playing with it! I'm in a queue, which isn't so terrible as I have a broken hand anyway. I do want it done righ…

09.02.12 I'm Weaving.. On a Jetplane...

(Dual-Posted on Livejournal, & Myspace.)So I haven't got a lot of my SunDragon piece done lately: this Chemistry class is kinda kicking my butt. I think I nailed this Ch6 quiz though, without the E.C., and almost a week early! Not bad.I've been working on a little Viking Whipcord too: not only as an awesome way to fill in my A&S50 Challenge, but also there's just something neat about it. I have plans to whip out a Kumihimo or two as well, probably in my colors (Purple, Green, Argent). The trick to me is really finding USES for cords. Kumihimo might be strong enough for bodice lacing, whipcord not so much (at least not the ones I've fonger-woven with DMC-3.) As Egdings maybe? Bet I could couch some in an embroidery piece for a neat touch (4 DMC Embroidery cottons, whipped very tightly? Not terribly period to mix media, but eh.)Ok, back to trying to stretch these pained knees, dreaming about meeting my new niece soon, and Estrella!Julianna Wylkyns
