    Wait for it... Wait for it.... Wait for it....

    My Tin Lizzie sit down is arriving today!!! sometime today that is... so I have to wait for it... wait for it... wait for it.....

    Today is just dragging by! I've got the furniture moved around (I already have the table for the sit down although it needs to be replaced. It is not in the best of shape so they're replacing it) so it's just hanging out, waiting for the UPS dude to ring the bell so that I can set up the machine and start playing...


    Okay. whew. I feel better now that I got that out.

    She's here!! She's Here!!!

    So I went out to do some errands.. hubby called me about 5pm to say he heard a noise at the door. He said it was more like a loud thumpthump... the UPS driver didn't even bother to ring the bell and I wonder if he just dropped it there.... $4k machine, just left at the door. Had he not been downstairs we never would have known and with all the construction going on in my house (they're working on nearly a dozen houses including on the lot next to me) nobody would have thought twice if someone walked away with a big horking box...

    I didn't get time to play with her because by the time I got home, with pizza, we all watched Snow White and the Huntsman then it was bedtime for the kids and then for me... I slept miserably last night... too much caffeine I think... and I'm leaving in 2 hours for a Sewing Saturday... I'll get to play with her tomorrow - all day....

    Now I need to name her - and make her a nice cover to keep her warm and cozy when I'm not using her....

    Well this way it gives her a chance to look around her new home, get settled in and gaze at all the material you and her will be playing with

    I got hubby to finish putting her together yesterday morning then had to run out to get a few errands done - it strongly advises you to use a surge protector and we didn't have an empty one - okay, we had one... but the light was flickering on it so there was no way I was going to use it... so in to town I went...

    After I got back, I read how to thread a bobbin - funny... if you thread a bobbin while the machine is not stitching, the needle still goes up and down!! Go figure. That's weird. It's designed to fill a bobbin while you are sewing which is a cool feature but I do like to have a few bobbins ready before I start a project....

    Well. .. after getting her up and running, I started to sew on a scrap sandwich and she didn't sound very good. There's something wrong for sure... then there was a clunk and I broke a needle. It also smells strong of oil in my craft room now. I'm not digging that. I'll be making a dealer phone call after they open. I think I want my training now.....I didn't think I'd need it but sadly I think I do. I must be doing something wrong and why is it smelling so strong of oil?...
