I've Got One Sweet Sewing Hangover

Yowsir, I can barely open my eyes.  And that's the truth.  (owhhh, this light is too dang bright)...

How did I get here, you might ask.  To the Seven Circles of the Sewing Cycle?

You know (sequence and duration may vary):  La De Dah, Denial, Anger, Negotiation, WTF, Acceptance and Now What?


Perhaps you've noticed my lack of participation in the bloggerhood lately, my barely being there.  I stand before you now and confess, this is why.  My Sewing Machine Broke!

Irredeemably.  



Farethewell Singer.  

Hello Viking!

  2. Uh oh - you are a Valkyrie behind the Viking now, with that huge dramatic music pushing you onwards. How exciting. It's sad about your Singer, but new gadgets? I'm guessing you have a few... Don't forget to eat and drink. I love that machine sculpture.

  3. Oh my gosh. That happened to me last year. It went through a serious withdrawl...and I'm only a casual user. You have my sympathies. Hoping you find a sturdy new machine....even though I Lurve that fabric one.

    1. Oh my, I'm an every day user, so it was unspeakably disorienting. I think I may have been in and out of a coma some of the time.

      But there's a Viking in my life now. sigh.

    1. I hope you have recovered soundly and are only having a sympathetic flashback on the anniversary of such a crime.

  8. Slightly late to this party. Soo sorry to hear of your woes. But glad it has a happy ending!
    I have a Pfaff which has been going strong for 20 yrs or more...touch wood!
    Husqvarna sounds great! You'll be out cutting down trees next! (They make the best chainsaws)
    Looking forward to your return, sewn item or not :-) xo Jazzy Jack
