I have had a ten year long loving relationship with a Bernina –68. She used to belong to my grandmother who cherished her dearly, being one of her big investments in life, back then 1968. When granny died I had the honor to take over custody. I have not been sewing much, but some curtains, a couple of quilted blankets, you know the drill… And when I started scrapbooking three years ago she became one of my most used tools. She is old and tired and will not last for long according to the sewing machine doctor. Hence the theme of my latest layout.
I thought I’d sew some on it, and since she is chewing almost everything I put under her needle I thought I’d end up with some interesting traces of her dying process. But nope… LOL! She behaved veeery well. I have some hidden journaling to document some of the fun and not so fun parts of our life together. I used some of my GCD goodies and the sketch from Sketchy Thursday’s GDT challenge.
I made a card out of the scraps, based on Laura’s sketch #54 over at 2Sketches4You. I also made today’s 365 cards challenge – Stripes and bold colors with a twist – since we in the DT got loads of great stickers from SRM stickers who is sponsoring this week.
I’m heading back to work, and later this afternoon I’m off for a dentist’s appointment. Yikes! It’s only a check up and I’ve been flossing like a mad woman the last three months. Soooo keep your fingers crossed I’ll do fine!
