Well, my beloved Bernina is on it's way to the hospital today. It's worked sporadically over this past few days but mostly not. This is the first issue I've had with this machine. Sam is dropping it off today at Top Stitch over in Medford - they've been closed for vacation and this is their first day open - will probably be a very busy day for Jonathan and Karen.
I wish I had some fun project to share but there's nothing, been working on the quilt blocks which you've seen and keeping track of the forest fires. I've been using the Brother machine for my quilt blocks - nice little inexpensive machine but definitely harder to get a nice straight 1/4" line, even with a guide.....I miss my Bernina.
No real news on the fire front - they are not especially good with updates on the websites or to the media so we sit here wondering what's going on. The smoke is so bad it's in the hazardous zone in my area, in the almost hazardous zone all over the region. We've been having an inversion layer which is holding the smoke in the valleys, this keeps the fires down a bit but it also means the copters and planes can't fly to help with the fire fight. This also means we, as in the general public, are not seeing exactly where the fires are burning - that's nerve wracking.
I tried to get some good pix of the smoke and ash/burnt pine needles on the vehicles but just couldn't capture it. I have seen some great smoke pictures online, don't know enough about photography to capture what it really looks like.
Now off to take Bailey for a short smokey walk, very short, wearing my mask......
