After years struggling with my old student model Singer machine, I have located a Bernina 831 at an estate sale. I will be blasting off at 5:30 a.m. tomorrow to be one of the first arrivals to view and hopefully purchase this machine.

I will be ecstatic if I am able to acquire the Bernina because I will be able to sew things again – the Singer only works when it feels like it, which is rarely when I feel like sewing.

Since I have my first grandaughter due in April, this is especially exciting. I will be first sewing a valance for her curtains, and then the sky is the limit on little pink baby projects!
