1. Our computer died on us. But we took it to the Apple shop, they said they’d fix it for free, and we picked it up today! After 5 days of silence/blog-free/email-withdrawls, I’m back to my comfy surroundings, here (yay!):
2. I thought my sewing machine was broken. But turns out that yep, I’m just an idiot. I couldn’t get the stitch length knob to turn. I was certain it was stuck (when in a hurry last week, I’d wound it real fast). I took my machine apart, couldn’t find a way to get to that knob, had my husband look at it, he was stumped, I put it back together, and was ready to take it to the shop. Then I realized….it was in the Button Holer mode. Um. Duh. I switched that off and everything works fine. Wow, our family is setting a trend for FREE machine repair these days.
Of course, (I shamelessly admit) that a week without a computer OR a sewing machine has meant more quality time spent with these munchkins:
How easily distracted we become with projects, blogs, and correspondences. I’m glad I saw more of my kids this week.
And in the mail came some lovely treasures…..
• In exchange for the Emory Skirt and bag below, Tara (Emory’s mom) made me this personalized necklace:
It’s simple, it’s sweet, it’s the perfect length. You can find similar necklaces on Etsy like this and this and this. Thanks Tara! I love swapping talents as payment.
We’re glad he works hard for our family.
And, I’m done.
While typing here….I have fabric dying in the sink….and I have a whole line-up of projects to be sewn this week (since my machine is now fixed).
Hi world. It’s nice to be back.
