And before you wonder, yes, I do know how to spell! Yesterday was one of those days. You know the ones - the kind of day where you should have stayed in bed. The ones where not a single thing you planned happened. The ones where everything that could go wrong did. The ones that the author Judith Viorst refers to as 'terrible-horrible-no-good-very-bad days'.
My first mistake was to get up in the morning. Second mistake was listening to the weather report where there were dire predictions of a big snow storm headed our way. Third mistake was deciding that my plans needed to be changed and errands needed to be run, instead of my much-anticipated day to sew...because who knows how much snow we'll get and how long it will be until we can easily get out. There went the morning.
Ooh - there's still the afternoon. Right???
Who was to know that my much-beloved Janome sewing machine would decide that it would be fun to take a nose dive onto the floor and bounce around a bit? Who was to know that said machine really wanted a holiday and decided that doing push ups on the floor was too much and flatly refuse to work?
No matter - I have a back-up machine. Wrestled it onto the table and cleaned it up. Watched in utter amazement as the belt shredded itself before my very eyes.
So - as I said - a little cheese with
my whine would be welcome.
Now, on to the mumblings of the day...
- We didn't get as much snow as the dire predictions said. Yay!
- How about THESE cute little Easter baskets?
- If you go HERE (and scroll down) you will find several really pretty free crocheted flower patterns.
- Check out all the wonderful links to be found HERE to make some really pretty (some quite unusual) aprons.
And just to prove that I've been doing something beyond breaking sewing machines, how about these...
