Back in July I told you I was going to try to replace the awning at our  
backdoor.  Conclusions:  The Bernina 550QE did just fine.  The construction  
was quite simple. Hefting and heaving the weight over around was a burden  
I'll never pick up again.  The awning looks nice but that's a hard way to  
save money. Next time, I'll happily pay the guys with the industrial  
machines and strong arms.  Polly

LOL!  Yeah, sometimes you just need to leave a job to the experts.

Re: Awning: the final voyage
I had been wondering how the awning went up, or if you had given up on THAT  
project!  I don't know that I would have been as "brave" as you, to attempt  
it!

Polly, that's one of the jobs that would have me giving DH a "Wife  
Look," that says, are you just a little bit out of your mind. No way, no  
how! You are a brave woman,Polly.
Congratulations on a fine achievement.

I don't know.  It might be easier to hire it done, but right now that awning is
YOURS.  It might have saved money doing it yourself, but it is also a point of
pride.  Most folks are afraid to even try.
