This afternoon my 27 year old Bernina suddenly started hissing. I was sitting at the opposite desk, quietly pinning and basting, so the noise came as a surprise. Before I knew what happened the sewing room was filled with smoke. Eeekk! I unplugged the machine, grabbed the jacket I was working on (please, don't burn! Not this one!) and checked whether or not the desk would go on fire too. It was pretty scary. After a while the machine stopped smoking and if it wasn't for the terrible smell all looked like nothing happened. Trip to the repair shop, first thing tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
So, I'm posting my September plans without knowing when sewing will resume. My first autumn sewing will be a remake of Lekala 8004. I made a version of this top in March but I will make some changes to the neckline. The neckline is very wide and my shoulders are always freezing. I have a deep purple knit in my stash. Sorry, no pics of the purple fabric. The sewing room is still a smelly no go zone...
Hope you all had a better sewing day!
