Woe is me


Disaster has struck , can you think of a bigger blip than a patchworkers sewing machine breaking down .
I am using the term disaster in a very loose way because obviously there are real disasters in many peoples lives .
The machine broke 3 needles by hitting the bar on the needle plate . The irony is a part completed quilt has been staring at me for months , yes months . I just could not get enthusiasm going to finish it , then after giving myself a nudge to get going the machine has a tantrum .
Oh well , nothing can be done till it,s had a overhaul .

Hey I feel for you. Not so long ago I did something similar and ended up without my dear machine for nearly a week - boy that was a long week and for some reason I couldn't even settle to any hand stitching either.

Hope you get it fixed quickly!

How frustrating for you, especially since you had psyched yourself up into finishing the quilt. Hope you get it fixed very soon.
