I don't know what I did

but I am definitely very very sorry. Let me explain. As I have already posted about previously my dear computer went to blog and browse in the great webland in the sky. I looked around, counted the cents carefully, then recounted to be sure and decided that the budget could just stretch to a new box. Just!
However DH wanted more and so took the new computer into the repair shop and had extra memory added, plus the old puta's hard drive copied and loaded. He wanted a faster sleeker machine with everything he'd had before.
Hmmm that doubled the price of the new computer and left me feeling seriously short of cash. I am the only person earning in our house. Still never mind I am clever and female. I can save a bit of money by sewing a few Christmas presents. Great idea.
Except someone, and no-one in our house did it, crept into the house, obviously while we were all there as there was no evidence of forced entry, dropped my sewing machine on its end, cracking the casing and slamming the turning circle inwards so it won't move anymore. Then and this is the clever part, they picked it back up, placed it on the sewing table as it had been, replaced the cover carefully so the damage wouldn't be discovered until someone, (ME,) went to use it. So to the gremlin, pixie, elf or who ever I've upset can I please tell you I am very sorry. Oh and could you please pop by in the same manner as before and replace my broken machine with a a nice new Bernette 82E.



Or if I haven't been good enough for that then a Bernette 56. Please.
Or this very sweet pink machine

Sorry to hear about your sewing machine! Hope things start to look up for you soon. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way.

Kitty said...

Oh no. That is seriously bad luck. Have you found out yet who did the deed? Is nobody owning up? :-(

On the plus side - at least you have a new poota! It's good to see you back.

Err! I always find appliance disasters come one after the other. Perhaps this can be repaired?

Not regarging your sewing machine. I have been reading a book you might like to look up. It came from my daughter who is an even more avid reader than I am (she learned it from me ;>). The book is written by Connie Willis and the name is "To Day Nothing of the Dog" . A very interesting and very different book. I enjoyed it very much. Perhaps yo will also.

Sorry. Type. Name of the book is "To Say nothing of the Dog"

How distressing! I hope things work out so that you get the sewing machine you want. The ability to sew is something I would really enjoy doing.

Maybe you could knit some gifts instead? Small things like hats, scarfs, toys, go pretty quickly. I actually picked up some cotton today and might make some dishcloths and/or washcloths.

That's such bad luck, hope things get better for you and the sewing machine is miraculously fixed or replaced
