We drove down to Taunton last Saturday to collect it from Bredons as it was ready from being serviced… so the time had come to get all it’s accessories together and list it on ebay. When Finn was playing with daddy sunday afternoon & while the light was still good I managed to take lots of pictures… although I realised the next day I’d forgotten to photograph a whole lot of assorted feet I had that don’t fit in the standard tool box! Oh well
It took the best part of sunday evening to crop the photos, upload them to ebay and write the blurb about it. Who would have thought explaining what the bernina 1260QPE does and what mine has with it would take so long! Click here If you want to see my finished blurb.
I’m still having palpatations at the thought of it actually selling… there are no bids just yet but a few watchers. Unfortunately I really have no choice as since Finn took over what was our dining room and his old small room has become our new dining room our storage capabilities have been severly reduced. Those of you who know me know how much crafting and sewing stuff I have… in addition to the collection of machines and there is no way we can physically fit it all in the small room. Even if the Bernina 1260QPE sells I will still have my other Bernina (the Artista200E) with embroidery attachment & my Babylock eclipse overlocker so I can’t really complain.
During the clear out I have recycled some old incomplete dressmaking patterns, given away my patchwork fabric stash, sent my unused non-feltable stashed yarns to a fellow Raveller in need in the USA with the postage paid by another Raveller as a gift.
Even with all this sorting and clearing I’ve been doing I’ve still got more to sort through…. but for this week I’ll call it a halt & hope my special Bernina baby finds a loving good home…. sigh.
Today was the first day I found loads of condensation on our windows when we opened the shutters…. looks like autumn is fast approaching
I’m a bit late posting this as I’ve been busy listing my beloved Bernina 1260QPE on ebay. I never guessed writing about what it can do & accessories included of would take so long!
I’ve also decided to sell some of my Bernina Artista design CD’s… one of which is signed by the author/creator Louisa Meyer
I’m still having palpatations at the thought of them actually selling but It’s all in a good cause as our little boy loves his larger bedroom and I just don’t have the space to keep everything anymore!

Well after the heartbreak of having to rip back over 100 hair tendrils earlier this week Haggis is coming along again nicely. I took a break from his hair… just couldn’t face re-doing all those rows so soon and moved on to his legs instead. After a bit of playing with decreases I’m happy again… and the pattern for his legs is finished.
I’ve re-positioned the slip stitch markers on his body closer together and I’m now feeling brave enough to start those rows again… phew!
I made a decision this week on the Omnia/Tocco quandry and the Omnia won & to replace the funds for my new purchase (bought the Omnia on Sat!)…I am going to sell one of my beloved sewing machines… my Bernina 1260QPE.
It may seem a bit drastic but I really don’t need 2 Bernina sewing machines & since we moved Finn into the big room (that was our dining room) we now don’t have the space in the flat to store both Bernina’s anyway.
So another decision had to be made… which one had to go? My Artista 200 with embroidery unit gives me far more options & capabilities… so unfortunately it had to be my trusty 1260QPE. I’m going to get it serviced and get all the extra accessories together for it so it will be ready to list on Ebay in the next few weeks.
I’ll be extremely sad to see it go but it’s in a great cause & the Omnia was worth it. I took the photos above with the Omnia and I’m a very happy bunny… here it is below (photo taken with old samsung 830) & I’ll let you all know how I’m getting along with it in my next post…
My Omnia now has a picture of Finn when he was just hours old ahhhhhh as my backdrop
