It was all going so well, and then............

There was lots of good news to be included in this post.

1) One of my winnings from the sew mama sew give away arrived.

 Look, it came from Poland, what fab stamps.

And inside were two little bundles of pretty fat quarters....

So that made me very happy.

And, (drumroll) I have got a new laptop in the sales

 Here is everything being set up and transferred over, so I have my own files and systems now.

Please ignore the stains on the carpet!

So, there was a lot to celebrate.

And then I actually got down to some sewing after a fortnight off for Christmas..... and my machine is not happy.  (perhaps it feels replaced by the laptop?) The tension just wouldn't go right and I kept getting clumps of cotton knotted as I sewed.  So, it's going to be a phone call to find someone to service it tomorrow, and those handmade January birthday presents might be a bit last minute. 


  1. Your new laptop looks very smart! Have you tried the usual new needle, rethreading the machine, take out the bobbin and put it back in and check the feed dogs are up type checks? I hope your machine feels better soon - maybe you could give it a cuddle?!

  2. Yay for new laptop and double yay for blokey there sorting out the transfer stuff for you! lol

  3. Congrats on your winning and so exciting about your laptop. Find a good service/repair person and you will be set. I found a great shop a few years ago and I would never dream of going anywhere else!
