You may remember how my old machine had a nervous breakdown and flat out refused to work again last Friday. I literally sat and smacked it for about ten minutes thinking that would work. (sometimes it does!) It just kind of pissed it off even more. I then talked nicely to it for another half an hour trying to apologize for my rash actions. This made the problem worse as the cover wouldn't go back on. I abandoned it and made myself a drink...
So my friend (and old roommate!) saw my predicament when I
Stanley squeaks like a hamster in a wheel and is a little noisy...but he is a fine piece of work, and helped me assemble my first project of 2012.
This was the project I was in the middle of when former un-named machine decided to have a mid life crisis and dessert me in my hour of need. (still grumbling)
Can you see that the material is purple? It looked pink when I took it, then edited it for twenty minutes to an off shade of "blah"...it really is purple, I promise!
Not quite sure who will be the recipient of this project...but it sure is wonderful to be able to quilt for three hours (while hubby napped) and just listen to the hum (okay the squeak) of Stanley. I'm back...and feeling better than ever!
First project of 2012 is in the works and well on it's way to becoming...well...still haven't figured that out. Stanley and I are still getting acquainted.
I wonder if I should pour him a glass of wine? Or maybe he'd like sewing machine oil on the rocks???
