christmas death bells

Want to hear the best and yet worst present this year? I have cruz'd Ebay and drooled over their selection of vintage machines. My want list is long and wonderful.

Well my daughter opened her last present Sunday from my Brother. She opened the box pulling out a vintage singer sewing book, bobbins, needle and feet ohh the shear volume everything you could want. As every item was unwrapped and goose bumps came with every rip of tape I had a feeling it was coming.

She slowly with an evil grin that only teens can give; that smirk of “ohh yeah mom I gotcha now” look; she ripped open the last big box. Packing corn spewed from the box like jumping beans and showered over the living room. The dogs jumped and barked and she laughed. I closed my eyes because I really did not want to see. I heard the squeal. It was like death bells ringing over a valley. I keep a silent prayer please don’t let them have done this to me.

In perfect mint condition a Singer 500 A; One of the machines in my top 5 list. It was like it stepped off the showroom floor right there in my living room. The green monster came over me and my daughter looked over at me and said “Hey mom look what I got Now I don’t have to use yours no more”. I looked across at my Brother 3500 which was used and abused by said child through the holidays and wondered what did I do so bad this year!

To have your dreams right there where you can smell it, taste it, and think why give it to a 15 year old? Who will never understand or treasure it.

I know this did not make the contest but I had to share. Those with Kids maybe can understand.

sewing shed

Hello everyone,

I finally got my sewing shed, after the condemned area I call the library/computer. Sewing/craft room over run by my junk I gave up. Now with limited space I have to put 9 tubs of fabric creatively so I can see what I have. WAIT! I think I found a missing person in the room but I am not sure. I still have to put insulation and paneling up.

I have been saving the flat bolt boards from Hancocks to save some but most of my stash is 4 to 10 yards long. So with only so many bolt boards and no real space to put mongo tubs how can store the rest? Book shelves? Cabinets? hang them in a mobile rack thingy?

I got a dresser from my kid; antique no less and she hates it, it fits patterns perfectly, 5 pattern rows across standing up. So where does that leave the rest of my stuff?


the sewing shop

I have finally started moving into the sewing shed, slowly slowly, trying to make the most out of what little space I have. Fabric storage, where what and how!

i am running on empty

I Started my weekend Friday taking the day off to take my daughter out to lunch and shopping for her birthday. She has been putting giant boulders in my path all week long about messing this day up. My hubby took her to school and ruined my surprize. Slipped her a 20.00 and told her to tell me while we are out shopping not to forget snacks for the Daytona 500 Race. (hubbycide is legal right?)

A creeping crud of some kinda bug bit finally Friday feels like an elephant standing on my chest and I am coughing my head off. My kid blew half my pay check still have not made it to Hancocks (fabric shop) who is moving and has HUGE 1/2 off EVERYTHING sale which i did not get to go to.

Sat. the party hit and I am stuck with my child, Prozac boy, Camo King, The next Cereal Killer, And a really scary kid I do not want to know his name, One girl who is not so bright and but very bubbly and last but not least Moody girl. The twins did not make it those girls are sick and Snotty girl did not make cause she got bad grades. I ended up taking most of the kids home. I am still sick.

Sunday Tornadoes, rain, hail, wind and I still have 2 kids left and they all want to sew. They made hoodies, one print out and 2 hoodies later done great I get ready to start mine power goes out. My hoodie still not made or even cut out.

Monday I went to work I am still sick. My kid is on holiday. She cleans the house fussing the whole time and sews 2 slip dresses for her and friend. This is so not fair.

How was everyone elses weekend?
