Do you ever have a day when everything goes wrong?
Car tires having problems.
Refrigerator leaking water on the floor.
Sewing machine broken.
You can live without a car or a fridge, but not without a sewing machine!
The little hole where the foot pedal plugs into the machine was wiggly and wouldn't make the electrical connection anymore. Mechanic says it's a broken part which was worn out and cracked (me too!) and he has ordered a replacement part, but who knows when it will come in. Yikes! A person could go into withdrawal without their sewing machine.
Luckily for me, I now have a few "back up" machines, so I can still sew. I set up an impromptu sewing center on the dining room table and have been sewing up my Celtic Solstice mystery blocks with my Sweet Baby Jayne Featherweight. Thankfully she is working perfectly and I am enjoying finishing up these blocks.
Tomorrow I will look into those other non-essential broken things!
