sewing so much, I blew a gasket ;-)

I was having a ball with FNSI, so it continued a bit more on Sunday

I finished my block for GEMMA for Block Swap Adventure



Completed a block for Shirley for Christmas Quilt Block Swap


Gemma and Shirley, your blocks are now in the mail and should get to you in about 7-10 days.

I was getting fabrics ready for my last swap block for the month for Terry for QBSA and there was a flash and the power went out ............. yes, Houston, we have a problem............

I got hubby and we investigated.   The power was off to only half the house, so it was something in the spare rooms ..... process of elimination, we found that the globe in my sewing machine had blown, and taken out the fuse.   Lucky for me, hubby is an electrician, and was able to take the cover off my machine and remove the globe, which had well and truly disintegrated.



I attempted to sew the last block, but it was not good.  I didn't realise just how much light that little globe was putting out and just how dark my sewing room really is.

I will get out tomorrow to get a new globe and finish off my swap obligations ;-)

  1. Good on you for getting all the sewing done, I had grand plans to sew all day Sunday but was struck down with the flu and spent most of the day in bed. Trying to get my sewing mojo back now.
