a day of mourning

The stitching gods are not smiling on me today. Shortly after I finished the bag, old reliable finally bit the dust. It wasn't the most expensive, fanciest sewing machine. It had a very limited stitch selection. Even skipped a stitch every now and again. But she was a good machine. I learned how to sew with her by my side. She will be missed.

So no WIPs this Friday. Maybe some creative accounting and a post about a new one. Keep your fingers crossed.

oh sheesh. That's lousy news indeed. Especially with the potential of yucky weather cooping you inside this weekend...

Bummer! It's always sad when a trusted friend bites the dust. Here's for honoring her memory with a fancy new machine!

I had to part with my first one about a year ago... I was not sad to get a new one as the old one was not reliable at all, but I was sad to finally see it go because it belonged to my much-missed grandma.
