pics, no pics

Best laid plans.  No pics.  Yet.  Maybe tomorrow.  This week got way out of hand.  sheesh

Yesterday, I ordered an ebook on my Grace Frame so things are looking up.  I did go and find my old Brother sewing machine and moved it over to the frame zone.  It will work great.  It has a deeper throat, so I am psyched now to get the thing all finished and learn!  This machine was bought in the, well, lets just say it was awhile before I got married.  It was a special Brother, they were just starting to sell them in the US.  It's white and has a sealed motor.  I never had one bit of problem until one day the zig zag didn't zig nor zag.  I took it to a mechanic who told me to buy an old machine and try to fix the broken cam part with the old machine parts.  Well, that didn't happen.  I bought a new Baby Lock instead.  I found out that day that they weren't making new machines as well as the old machines.  sigh.  If the sun is shining, my tongue is in the right place, (you get the idea) then the stitch tension will work right.  I have used it a lot and when I was bit-a-er-complaining about it to the man, he decided to buy me a new machine for Xmas that year.  woohoo!!  That's how I got a new Singer Curvy.  I really love this machine and have used it a LOT already.

I am still using all the other machines as well.  I now have my mom's old Necchi and an old black (antique) Singer that's not working as of yet.  I will use those too.  Lots of quilting to get done, don't you know.

If things work out right, tomorrow morning I will finish installing the bathroom sink.  It seems like Sunday mornings are right for plumbing.  I don't know why.  I have made 5 trips to Lowes and Home Depot so far for this project and think, yeah, think this will finally get done.  Then, I will head downstairs to putter.

No knitting is getting done, no spinning really either.  Maybe Monday?
