Welcome Home, My Old Friend

I've discovered a new axiom. (Well, new to me anyway; I suppose there are tons of other bloggers who are already well aware of it). Okay, here it is... If you have nothing much going on in your life at the time , you have pleny of time to sit down and compose a post. Yet you can't think of anything to write about. However, when you are bursting at the seams to post the things that are happening in your life, life is so hectic that you have no time or you are too tired to post it.

And that's the way it has been around here lately. I told you that on April 3, I had taken my serger to be fixed. At the shop, they said that they would call me in about ten days to let me know if it could be fixed and what it would cost if it could be fixed.

Two weeks went past, but no call came from the shop. My sweet husband began to ask me if they had called yet, and I would say "no". Then he would say, "You need to give them a call and see what's going on." This little routine went on until last week, when he called me from work and asked me the same question, to which I gave the same answer. He replied, "You're afraid to call, aren't you? Well, then, I'll call them."

He was right, I WAS afraid -- afraid of the answer they would give me. "Sorry, the machine is too old (they don't make this brand any longer) and we can't get the parts it needs." OR perhaps, they would tell me what it would cost to fix it, and it would too high. What would I do WITHOUT a serger?

But, such was NOT the case. It WAS fixable and the cost WAS reasonable. If we wanted to have it fixed, we could pick it up in two days. Oh, how I was thanking the Lord!!!!

So, Saturday, was my serger's big HOMECOMING. Oh, am I THRILLED to have her back! And she has come home just in time. My eldest needs a white blouse and black skirt for a concert on this coming Tuesday. So we have both been sewing and serging up a storm these past few days in order to get it done. . . . And I must say, it feels soooooo GOOD to be sewing again.

Y Blessings,

Oh I am SO thrilled for you! I am so thankful it was repairable and within a doable cost. YAY!

(And I totally understand the rush of sewing after you've been on hiatus.) I hope you'll share Meg's outfit (WITH the beautiful model.) For ME?! ;-)
