Disaster Strikes

Stitch Bling
Disaster has struck. No it's not fire or flood or sickness or anything really bad. Just, you know, disheartening, frustrating, bewildering...

My sewing machine is broken! Just the other day, midway through the seam no less, my baby just stopped - dead - she functions no more! Quick call the whaambulence. I didn't even know what to do. I didn't believe it at first - I was in full on denial mode. This cannot be, surely she has just become unplugged - but nope! Nada nothing! She has never failed me in all of her thousands of hours of sewing, so I guess she just needs little vacation. Sooooo, off she goes to see Mr. Repairman, hopefully her stay won't be too long. I will miss her. Let's hope she has a speedy recovery.

AACCK!!! Now what? --Can't sew-- What to do with myself? See, I'm a bit of a work-a-holic. I'm always working on something. Always. I never feel quite content unless I'm multitasking several things at once.

So, as always when faced with a sewing hiatus, I turned to another of my crafty endeavours. I have been knitting a lot lately and decided that i needed some fancy schmancy stitch markers. So I pulled out all my old beading bits and baubles and went to town.

Hmm, how many stitch markers can one person really need? Well, back to knitting...

Happy Sewing!
