Well, you fix one thing and then something else happens.

Like someone forgot to look where they were going, or was texting, or yapping to her friends.

Anyway, since things are hanging off underneath and rubbing, this is undriveable. It happened 1/2 block from home so I got it home.

Now I wait for insurance to call. Not the 5 doctors and their companies that called starting at 8:15am offering their services that would support my pain and suffering claims. No I'm looking for this ladies insurance company to call, fix this and get me a loaner. I'm betting she has no insurance. Just saying.

And how is your day going? Hopefully better than mine.

And the studio assistant wants to report that she was thrown very suddenly on the car floor and was very shook up. She is better today.

It's Back!!!

Back to work after a six week hiatus! I called the shop Friday afternoon and was given the don't call us routine until I asked to come pick it up and take it elsewhere. Some how the story changed to You're next on the list. We have a sign that says 3 to 4 weeks. This is the normal procedure. Yada, yada. 

Funny how that machine was miraculously fixed in less than 24 hours. If you are in South Amherst, Ohio do NOT drop in on the quilt shop there. Just sayin'!
And there is no 3 to 4 week sign on the register. There is so much crap on the counter you can barely see the register let alone any sign on it!

Back to collaging these little pieces, it shall be fun!!! And the best thing is I won't wake up at 5am wondering how I am going to do all this sewing with no machine.

No Bernina! Six weeks Saturday!!! I will post the name of the Shop that has confiscated it on Tuesday after I call them. Just a little peaved. I know people get sick but please let people know what is going on. I called and was told "
Don't call us, we'll call you." Bad business etiquette if you ask me.

My assistant agrees. And she rules all.

She is feeling better after a bout of fleas followed by a hot spot.  I thought she was going to chew her hind leg off.

Mr. Bernina, Where Are You?

Mr. Bernina ( I call it Mister because it is not working) will have been gone for a month on Saturday. I feel a little lost.

I have been working on a thread painting with the Sweet Sixteen but. . . I have been invited to participate in a collage show and have been asked to contribute some fabric collages. It's a great opportunity to promote fiber to people not used to thinking of fiber as art.

I have piled up some pieces that just need some sewing together. They are small like 11 x 17 or smaller. I am thinking of adding magnets to their back so they can be hung on thumbtacks. Easy, peasy.

Mr.Bernina please hurry home!
