An Unexpected Break!

Quite Literally.
I'm in the middle of quilting my most gorgeous new project when the loudest SNAP happens. Kinda like when you break your needle, but it wasn't just the needle, it was the entire needle assembly. You know the metal thing that holds the needle in...how is that possible? I don't know, but what I do know is my girls came running in and we all searched the floor finding parts and bits of parts. So it seems I am taking an unexpected break for an undetermined amount of time. Secretly I wish this meant purchasing a new machine { crossing my fingers! }, but think I will have to settle for a repair.
So for now I am a house cleaning, book reading, grocery shopping, park playing, blog posting, laundry folding, pool swimming, errand running - NOT sewing - mama! Strange.

Iw as just going to ask if you are going to make anymore Mail bags with the little letters. My girls would kill for one of those!
I have a really crappy sewing machine you are welcome to use... it isn't that crappy i just don't know how to use it!

I had the exact same thing happen today - except it was on my new to me commercial machine and on pillow 3 of my brand new piecing job - I think the universe is telling me to take a break - tee hee!
