When it rains...

Sorry I have been missing in action, seems like when it rains, it pours.

Two weeks ago in the middle of making a quilt for DAR my sewing machine stopped feeding.  Yup the feed dog stopped doing its job.  Actually it really hadn't been up to par since the last time I got it serviced.  I had to take it back once, and I think I really didn't want to take it back again, it was around Christmas, so I just made do.  Well, come to find out there was a broken part, and since it is an old Bernina, they have to get it from Switzerland!  Hopefully it will be back next week, but in the mean time I have been looking for a second machine.

Trolling ebay and craigslist.  Lost 2 on ebay at the last minute, but it went over my budget, so oh well.

Also, DH and I started our spring walking routine about a month ago.  When DH gets home from work around 4:30 we walk.  Usually about 2 or 3 miles.  It is a great way to have time alone with your spouse, plus great exercise.  But of course this old body is objecting.  Turns out it is my sciatica (sp) and walking irritates it.  When we would get home I couldn't lift my left leg.  So I am supposed to be resting it, but since I don't have a sewing machine I am going crazy!  OY!

Good news, DD finished her second year of college!  Yeah!  It was a rough semester, but glad it is over and she did well.  Now job hunting time comes!

Just wanted to give you an update.  Hope to be back on the crafting track soon.
