I needed something cheerful in life today. It is day 2 or 3 of probably a full week of rain. It’s gray and kind of ugly out. Warm and very humid. Not my best kind of day for allergies, ambition or attitude.
I have been trying to get some personal sewing/piecing done this week and have really struggled. My 10 yr old workhorse of a machine is on its last legs. It works well for half an hour or 10 minutes, then goes stupid. I have gotten really frustrated with it. I thought I had it working well again yesterday and last nite it went extra stupid. As Vicki would say, it is “craptastic”. What a fitting word.
So today I went to look at machines. Yeah. Just to LOOK.
Oh get over it. I needed something cheerful. Something functional, you know? How can you get anything done when you fight with the damn machine?
So MO came home with me:
And for some extra cheerfulness, I slapped some borders on this panel for our new studio.
