I finally bought the sewing machine. A Viking 118. I couldn't talk myself into the computerized one...too afraid it wouldn't work right or it would need "updating". LOL Just gimme a good dial in setting and I'll be fine.
This past Monday I gave it a test drive. Last night of classes and I finished up my little elastic do dad, I brought out the book and started playing with the different settings.
Did my very first "automatic" button hole and sewed the button too with the machine. Blind hem was a breeze. Amazing what the proper tools can accomplish. I'm so excited.
Now I need to clean out that space and make room for some creativity.
Another treat (for us all) is that it has now been 5 weeks of sobriety for Tom (still knocking on wood).
Still trying to be positive and looking up instead of down. But I did blow my top this past Monday when I asked if he had accomplished some things and he said NO. I've asked him to make a list....of anything, feelings or things to do or places to go. Nope, just won't do it.
Told him I couldn't take care of everyone and work and be Miss Nice all at the same time.....loudly.
I know, bad me. Hey, I can't always be Mary Sunshine ya know.
