    I am at home today waiting for the delivery of my new long arm. I don't hear as well as I should so I am afraid to go upstairs and I definately can't do any sewing because I know I wouldn't hear the door with the machine going.

    I could do some hand work but I don't WANT to. I want to take a nap but can't do that either!

    How many YouTube videos can a person watch in a day? I've seen kittens and puppies and all sorts of quilting videos. The stock market isn't even open today so I could play or watch.

    Whine! Whine! Whine!

    Sounds like me when I'm waiting for the vet. All I know is they'll be here "after 1:00." Today I didn't wait--I worked horses and was down the road with one when she pulled in. We hustled back, she didn't care if she had to wait a minute. :-D We no longer have a dog outside to sound the alarm when someone pulls in, so I keep quilts that need the binding sewed on in the library so I can look out the window to the driveway.

    I know... what a thing to whine about! My tolerance is almost at it's end and I'll start jumping in my skin any minute now.

    I have a quilted pig here to repair and I sewed one patch on his leg but I just can't do any more!

    If hearing is an issue for you, you could check out the stuff at www.soundclarity.com. I'm sure they have something you could attach to your doorbell to flash the lights when the doorbell rings. That way you could be in your sewing room and know when someone is at your door. (Wouldn't help for today's delivery but good for the future.)

    I would be pacing a hole in the carpet LMBO
    I can't wait to see your new set up :D:D:D
    When I am expecting a delivery and want to sew, I have left the front door cracked open and a note on the storm door that says "I am sewing, please knock LOUDLY" :D:D:D

    I'll even take pictures when it gets here (wonder if the delivery person will be a good looking man, see what it has driven me to... not that I need to be driven to think of good looking men...) Where was I? Oh, pictures. Yep, I'll take pictures.

    Never thought of that about the door. I should take a look as I do this all the time, deliveries or not.
