    You sure were! I've made a few myself this past year. I also use them for my ice cream bowl, as I can't hold cold things.

    What would you use if you want to hold something hot on my lap , such as a bowl of soup ?

    Impressive output. I bet you're itching to get your sewing machine back home.

    Nice work … I should make some for my DD. Would make a nice Christmas gift, and I don't think she has any.

    You sure were on a roll! They look great. How many more do you need to make? How long will your machine be out of commission?

    Nice job Sewingsuz. I have that same pattern and am going to make a couple for Secret Santa gifts at our guild.
    What kind of batting to you use as I don't want it to catch fire in the microwave?
    Thank you,
    Donna

    Hot food is what these were originally made for. If you want to re-heat something in the microwave, you put your bowl into one of these microwaveable bowls, heat for 1-2 minutes (no more at a time) and when you take it out, you won't burn your fingers on a hot bowl, you basically have a built-in hot pad to hold it with. . That's why the ladies are saying it also works great for a bowl of ice cream.

    Thanks for all the comments. I will get my machine back on Nov 22nd. I think I have had my Bernina for about 13 yrs and only had it serviced once. The lady that took the machine in and wrote it up on the computer, looked at me and said "only once?" I have cleaned and oiled it myself often. I ask her to have the repair person tell me how many stitches are on the machine. I will let you know what happens? I also took the walking foot there and ask to be checked because it makes a lot of noise when I am using it.

    The saying about John Deer and Berninas is almost the same.

    Almost looks like the stack I have. Aren't we lost without our machines? This just gives you time to cut out more. BrendaK
