LOL! I thought I was the only one who did this. My machine is Martha too and my serger is Ella (the Elna).
I think Eileen has it totally wrapped up with Sven, but that photo of your stash has me drooling so I’ve just got to give it a shot.
And I agree it just has to be a Viking name.. soooo….
I humbly submit:
Frigga – Odin’s wife, and “mother of all”..
And this is my irreverent Irish coming through, but that’s a heck of a good name for when you get annoyed with those inevitable serger-stop-ups… “Oh FRIGGA frickin, frappin…..!!”
Congratulations Kerrie! A perfect name to add to my colorful vocabulary…haha!
Thanks to everyone!
Hope your New Year is filled with all things good!
