My Room Is a Mess

That photo makes me feel slightly better. But I still need to launch an organisation campaign before I end up crushed under all this stuff


Messy indeed.

At least people don’t smoke as much as they used to.

It seems to me that there may be correlation between messy rooms and poor mental health.

If you’re feeling a bit down, getting your room clean, tidy and organized will* make you feel somewhat better.

I finally found my “Walking foot” under a pile of papers, a week or two after noticing that it was gone. It’s a Bernina-- and those feet are expensive.

It’s ok as long as you know where everything is.


Everything Bernina is expensive. And if it shouldn’t be, it’s made to be by giving it a fancy sounding name. Plastic shims for thick seams? No no no, how pedestrian! It’s a “Bernina Tool Height Compensation Plate”. (Don’t get me wrong - Bernina are the Mercedes of sewing machines but with high end machines come high end prices.)

I really like the feet though. Much easier to change out than on other machines, so during a sewing project, I can always use the most appropriate foot for each seam.

I recently bought a high shank adapter on ebay, which means that I can use ultraspecialized industrial feet. That does somewhat negate the “quick change feature” unless I buy more adaptors, though.

Indeed - Bernina feet may cost a fucking fortune, but they are basically indestructible and are very well engineered.
