These last three weeks have been filled with sickness. A lingering sickness for each one of us, spaced about a week apart. Thus the lack of blog content.
I have exciting news (well, it's exciting news for me anyhow! LOL)! My hard work and penny pinching paid off and I am now the proud owner of a new-to-me sewing machine. I was in the market for a brand-spankin'-new sewing machine, but as I got closer to amount I would need for my new machine, I called a dealer and asked if they had anything used in my price range that would be a higher-end machine. And they did! After looking it over and trying it out I took it home with me. [Insert wild cheers and dancing here.]
I still have to get some foot issues worked out. I bought a walking foot but it doesn't work for my machine, so I have to take it back. I also want to get a rolled hem foot. But I'm very happy with it. Oh, it's a Husqvarna Viking #1. I'll be posting pictures soon. :-)
I did shed a tear or two when I had the thought, "I can't wait to tell my grandma about my new machine!"...only to realize a split second later that I can't call her...I know she would have been happy for me to get a new machine.
And moving on...apparently I can count but I cannot add. I haven't been able to go out grocery shopping so dinner tonight was a Taco Bell run. I counted my items and came home. As I divvied up the items I realized that I was missing an item. I counted again...had the correct number...and then realized I hadn't added correctly. Duh...
I just finished reading Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster. Such a sweet, sweet book. I wish that a good movie would be made based on this book. I've attempted (two minutes? maybe) to watch a Mary Pickford version, and the Fred Astaire version veers sharply from the book so that disappoints as well.
And...I'm done rambling. ;-) Have a lovely day!
