This post was previously at the end of my 1st blog submission for 2011. Unfortunately, something happened to the formatting and it overlapped the post before it. Sorry! It was a bit of a mess.
If you've been following my quilting adventure, you know that I've had "issues" with one of my sewing machines. (If not, read about it here, http://thejoyfulquilter.blogspot.com/2010/11/help-my-sewing-machine-spit-at-me.html and here, http://thejoyfulquilter.blogspot.com/2010/12/return-of-pfaff.html to catch up.) Anyway, it went to the shop and home again, but it just wasn't sounding like it should. I took it BACK to Mr. Fix-It, but he was out shopping.
I stitched a bit for Mrs. Fix-It who claimed that she didn't hear anything - even though everyone in my house (and half the neighborhood) could here it from my sewing room!
Anyway...I left it. (There went ANOTHER week of sewing!!!)
When I picked it up (AGAIN!), I was told that there had been some OTHER bent part that "should have been spotted" during the original repair. (...you think?!)
Mr. Fix-It apologized and I was on my merry way.
This time...the machine sounds MUCH better! Thank goodness (!) because I've got UFOs to finish!
Now where's that List??? :o)
