I love my sewing machine. I mean it...I really, really, really love it!
But not today.
My machine has a thread cutter on it and every time I cut the thread at the end of a seam
it made this icky, scary, oh-my-gosh crunching noise. It didn't help to clean it...I tried that.
My sweet and kind husband picked that heavy machine up and took in for repair,
while I took off to have a fun lunch with lots of women and extremely yummy food.
When I got home, he told me it will be at least Tuesday before I get it back.
Uh...WHAT DID HE JUST SAY?
Breathing in a brown bag helped with the hyperventilating I was doing after he told me the news.
To top it off, my spare machine is at my daughter's house in another city.
My sewing withdrawals came on swiftly. What am I going to do!!!!
Desperate times call for desperate measures!
I made this little lady come out of being just a decorative piece and she managed to help me
sew a few seams. She doesn't back stitch (ugh) but she sews a straight seam quite nicely.
That heart and star block is one Doris at Quilting Queen Online made for the EQ7 Seasons RAL.
Marian at Seams To Be Sew has more info on giveaways and who's creating rows.
My row is on Monday, September 15th...come on back to visit!
