Christmas Wrap-up #3 - The Final Saga

This post is going to be ALL ABOUT ME and what I got for Christmas:) Yea!

I want to introduce you to someone very special to me. We met at Christmas, and I turned a new page in my life, and will NEVER LOOK BACK!


Isn't he hot? He happens to be a Bernina 220 and runs like a dream! (In case you didn't know, Bernina is a Swiss company, so I named him after the smart kid on The Swiss Family Robinson, Ernst!)

Also, the awesome MIL got me this sweet ride for him, so I don't have to carry him!

He can do so many more things than Mo could, and he can ACTUALLY QUILT! It's so nice to not have to get frustrated with a tired old machine (sorry Mo, I still love you, a little).

My loving husband went to the Bernina store, unbeknownst to me, and picked him out, as well as a few accessories, ALL BY HIMSELF! Isn't he a peach? I don't know what I did to deserve him! One thing he made sure of was that Ernst came with instruction. Part of the package was 4 classes at the local Bernina Store to learn all about him and the crazy things he could do. That's what I was doing all January! We made all types of crazy samples, and now, I'm a MASTER! (Well, not really, but at least I know the ins and outs of him!) So, our house is pretty harmonious now, and I'm TERRIBLY happy! Hope you all had as great a Christmas as I obviously did!

See ya!

PS: My 1 year blog-a-versary is coming up. Shall I do anything special for my 2 readers out there? Hmmm?


  1. Yes, yes you should! Ernst looks amazing! I'm still convinced I should remain a Bernina virgin as long as there's no chance of me getting one...I don't want to know how amazing they are!

  2. But can Ernst make awesome straw top hats too?

  3. 3 readers .. ahem! :) Nice machine.

  4. 4 readers? :) I'm j of your machine!

  5. Okay, I LOVE that you named your sewing machine. Mine has a name too: "Sassy." :) hehe. It was so nice to meet you today, Ellen!

  6. OK now you're up to six readers! :) Can't believe it's already been a year!
