Another Lil' Stringy Thingy!
Look! The Blue Wizard is home! And she runs like a dream! It wasn't cheap to get her fixed, but undoubtedly worth it. I have NOT heard from the ebay seller...after I sent him pics of the broken mess. He sent one email saying it was UPS's fault. Excuse me? the box was in perfect condition. No holes, no tape off, nothing. The box was too big for the machine, the machine rattled around because there was not enough packing material in the box. UPS didn't do that. Besides..there was no foot pedal,no belt, no bobbin case?? working condition?(okay, don't get my blood boiling again here....)
So..The wizard is home. And she sews beautifully! Who WOULDN'T love to sew on a machine called WIZARD?? Just to prove it, I made this little stringy thingy for Tonya! She has invited me to do a collaborative book with her and I am so tickled. I haven't been able to spend much time with her on it yet, or give much input, but I've had other irons in the fire.
So Ton, Lil' Stringy Thingy is on it's way to Gay Paree! Be watchin for it. Sorry I don't have time to hand quilt it for you myself,but I'm sure you will come up with something wunnerful!
Yesterday I also found a box waiting for me. Oh boy. I'm going to have to ban myself from ebay...I've now got the set of insulated MUGS from my childhood, and the CARRIER they go in! Weeeeeeee! But I'm done now. I certainly don't need an ice bucket, and not sure I want the pitcher..well....we'll see! My family just stands around shaking their heads!
