Here's my sweet girl, making a heart with her hands and wishing everyone a happy Valentine's Day. We spent the day together yesterday, as her school is the only district in America which still has Lincoln AND Washington's birthdays off. We had fun, going to Target, Ulta and Red Robin for lunch. Who knows, maybe we will do it again next Monday for Washington's birthday...
She was really into that milkshake, I tell you!
In other news, Handy Man Bill has been back for a repeat awesome performance.
He made the opening in my sewing table larger to accommodate my new Bernina 740. I am so happy to have this machine in place, and that we are continuing to get acquainted (the machine and I, not Bill and I). The only thing about this machine is that is it VERY sensitive. It has a little computer screen, as you can see, and this past weekend it lit up like Fourth of July with an alarming warning picture of gears clashing and a big red X over them. Oh shoot, I thought I had wrecked the new machine already. I got out the 150 page manual and found that I needed to remove the bobbin casing to see what the trouble was. Removing the bobbin casing is a piece of cake, putting it back properly, not so much. The problem? A two inch piece of thread. Okay. I got it out, and spent 15 minutes trying to put the bobbin case back in correctly.
I have four rows of Penny Pincher put together and hope to wrap that top up on Thursday when I have the day off.
Hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day with your Sweetie, or on your own. If you are by yourself, do something lovely for YOU!
