Still no sewing machine …

The man at the repair shop said “It doesn’t look good. It’s the panel.” I’m not sure what he means by “the panel” but it doesn’t sound good. Another man is coming to look at it today or tomorrow. I feel lost without my sewing machine.

Sean could have bought a couple of old machines for me from a clearing sale auction on the weekend, but he didn’t think I would want them! What was he thinking?

On the plus side though no sewing machine means more time for other things. Like housework. This morning I got up at 7:30 and so far I have had breakfast, done the dishes, cleaned the kitchen, stripped the bed, remade the bed, cleaned the ensuite, had my shower, put 2 loads of washing on, started folding the clean dry clothes and its not even 9:30 yet. It helps that Khye is still in bed – he’s having a long sleep this morning.

It is also a cold, wet, windy day which means I’m not distracted by the sun and tempted to relax and waste time outside in the warmth and fresh air.
A couple of days ago Sean surprised me with a softie that he made! He designed it (it’s a horse), sewed it and stuffed it all himself! Last night I finished it off and gave it some eyes and a mane and this is the result.
Khye hasn’t seen it yet but I hope he enjoys it. Speaking of Khye he is still asleep and its now 9:45am….
