It was all going sooo well

and then disaster struck !!!
This gorgeous man in my life got a bit tense

so the Jones man himself has gone to the poorly sewing machine hospital !!
I did the kindest thing and popped him in the truck this morning and over the hills to Macclesfield we went , i think he was relieved as i tried to make him better last night and the whole house stank of wd40 ... my magical repair spray when i had done .
Yes i do need to get out more and not just to the fabric shop !!
So while my other man is out of commission i have got the Brother (better known as plastic fantastic because its not) out and brushed off the cobwebs ... literally !
We had a little chat and between us we have made up a drawstring bag .

Today i did manage to score some very cute quilt sets which will be used for bags etc
i would show you but its nearly dark here so that will be another thing to add to the must do list !

Off to checkout the open university courses as i obviously have toooo much time to spare
I am thinking about History or maybe Geography mmmmm what to choose

Hope he is back up to full speed soon. There's nothing more frustrating, at least you have a spare. My sewing machine is a bit like my computer, I dread anything going wrong with it, I can use it really well, but when it goes wrong I fall to bits!
Take care.

So sorry your Jonesy is out of action perhaps he needed a break like us so when he returns all oiled and refreshed he will give you many more years of good service,sew untill then have a good week best wishes Pat.
