IN A QUANDARY

That blasted sewing machine behaved last night. Now I don't know what to do. Take it back or keep it and and see how it goes for a few more days. Pfffffft.

ABOVE: So... here is what stage I got to last night on this bag. It's certainly a bright, vibrant bag! I love it. In fact I love most of them... derrrr!

Steve leaves this morning for Hamilton, all he has to do is 'report' in then he can go again! Mad. His trial is looking like being in April next year. Such a long time to wait and have it hanging over his head.

Today? Gunna sew. And go to Weight Watchers. Hoping for a small loss. Or large.. I will take either!

I LOST: 1.8 kgs this week. AWESOME. (well in fact I'm bloody STOKED about that, cos if ever there was a week when I was going to 'eat my emotions', this was it! And I didn't.)

Now I'm going to do some more sewing and see how we go.

ABOVE: The 'Bright Bag' finished. LOVE IT.

Can a sewing machine has a 'split personality'? Cos I swear that machine is out to totally piss me off! It sewed beautifully this afternoon, only jammed up once! Pffffft. Still taking it back... but will do it tomorrow. I'm scared they will take it back and make me wait ages for a new one... and NOT give me a loaner in the meantime! I will be lost if they do that!

But then, I won't know till I do it eh? Should not expect trouble...

Steve is safely back in Palmerston North.. Amanda has her boys.. all is good in my little SOAP OPERA... for now.

End of Day: spend the evening fighting the urge to throw up! Must have been the kebab I had for lunch. Nasty. Off to bed now, hopefully I'll feel better in the morning. nite nite.

  4. Take the machine back & demand a new one, this has gone on long enough and causing you too much stress (as if you don't have enough going on).

    I think you should get our money back & go elsewhere because from a service point of view, these people as sorely lacking.

    I reckon take it back and get a new one. It will annoy the crap out of you if it does it again. Kate

  6. Take it back. If it has played up once, it will do it again. Take it back once and for all and get a replacement.

    Nice bag too.

  25. Maybe you could threaten Richard with Fair Go Chris. It's disgusting. You only had the machine for a few days and it played up. Telling my friends not to buy a Husquarvana now.
