My two year old sewing machine has been in the repair shop most of July. It's a little disturbing how much I miss it. I need a creative outlet in the evenings to keep me from going insane. On the upside though I have not had little threads stuck to my bum for the entire month of July.
The first repair wasn't very successful so I took it back for Round Two. It is entirely possible that I've run through the machine's entire life span in the last 24 months. The lady at the repair shop asked me how many hours of sewing I've put it through. "I dunno. About 500 blog posts." She so kindly reminded me that it's not an industrial machine. Crap. I may have to shell out some money for a new machine...or get a new hobby. I hear knitting needles are cheap.
