I can swing again!
Several interruptions, one broken needle, and thirty minutes of hair-pulling later trying to trouble shoot the fancy electronics on the Bernina and the swing cover is finally done. Working without a pattern was challenging, but I enjoyed myself. Alternating between sewing machine and garden, I worked my way through trial fittings as I went along.
I made bias tape for the piping, trim and ties using a continuous bias technique I’ve not used in years. Thank you Google search and my fellow bloggers for the tutorials.
The swing cover slips on and off in less than two minutes, so it will be a breeze to remove it for cleaning.
We celebrate Mike’s 50th tomorrow with a small gathering of friends (in the back yard of course). Do you think it would be unseemly for me to take a nap mid-party?
