Well, how does that expression go? The first time you fail, it's not your fault. Second time, if you make the same mistake, you're dumb. Or something like that, right?
What am I ranting bout? I bought another Bernina 1130 sort of on ebay...was really happy with it, although I only sewed a few minutes, just to be sure it worked. Parked it until I got home from helping with baby yesterday.
Sewed about an hour last night, then another hour today and all of a sudden, out of nowhere, the friggin thing TURNED OFF. All by itself. NO POWER!
OMG. Am I frustrated? Do I feel stupid??
So I emailed the woman/business I purchased it from telling her it's not working. I checked the paypal website and they have purchase protection so I should be able to get my money back.
But I am not a happy camper...
I know others have had similar experiences with buying machines on ebay and getting junk. This was looking good. And then: BOOM.... DEAD.
Other than that, it's a great Monday. Claire came over for a bit, which was fabulous. I worked on my JTForever blocks, trying to catch up.
I'm heading back to SF today again to stay with my daughter to help them some more with the baby. Oh, I'm loving it.
Hope you're having a great week!
Love to you all,
Randy, feeling pretty stupid today!
