Such a busy weekend, I haven't even been able to look at my stitching, let alone touch the sewing machine!
Anyhow, things should be better this week I hope and I should get time for both.
We had the car at the garage for it's MOT on Saturday. It passed, but the brake pipes are corroded and need to be replaced. That wasn't expected. We have to save up for that, so will get it done asap.
Well speaking of repairs .... this morning I had the repair man out for my washing machine and guess what ... it's unrepairable! *cries*
They can't get the parts anymore, it's too old and at anyrate, it would cost more to repair than to buy a new one. :( So I'm waiting for a call to tell me how much the cover we have on our appliances will give us towards a new machine. I can't believe we have to get another new appliance, why does everything go at once?
One good thing though. Remember my cooker? Well, I'm far from expert with it still, but I have to say that I absolutely LOVE it! I really was worried about changing from gas to electric, but the only wish I have, is that I'd done it years ago. Oh, and you're right Midge, it's SO easy to clean! Do you have a cover on your hob? I was looking and they do glass covers (not expensive either) that you can even stand things on if needed (hot dishes from oven) and that protects the hob when your aren't using it. I was wondering if they're any good.
So now onto nicer things ... stitchy stuff. :) :)
I've made a start on Toni's yellow rose. It's such a bright happy colour. :)
I'm enjoying stitching it anyhow.
Hope you all had a good weekend and were able to enjoy some lovely stitchy moments.
