This past week and a half have been tough. I melted my brand new salt and pepper shakers:
They were in the stove since Christmas - but I just used the oven the other day. Whoops. The salt worked great for getting the spaghetti sauce stains off but that was the only silver lining on this one.
Then I made Mr Hunters square screw bit into a circle trying to help him put down the sub floor. I was like one of those losers on the World Worst Handy Man shows. I was embarrassed, but there was no denying that the bit was no longer squared. =(
Then, and I cannot believe this goes on, but none the less, then I broke my sewing machine!
My auto threader arm got caught on my gigantic stupid pet quilt! I wanted to really finish it, I had hand stitched around everything, but that was it - I didn't even bind it and the damn thing has been on our bed for months. I know- I know! Obviously I have to get it done so I can wash all the pet hair off. We have multiple layers of blankets so its not like it touches our bodies - but the hair - oh gawd the pet hair! So I decided to stop being a baby and try to stipple this monster. The bulk must have caught the arm and snapped it right off. I didn't even know it had happened. I was stitching away when suddenly the piece came into view. I am still grieving. This is going to cost me a fortune to fix, if it even can be fixed!
Not only did I bust the threader - but my stitches look like ka ka. I don't even care - I just want this thing done and off my table.
And to top it all off - my stupid boots are disintegrating! Both feet have had the laces rip though the fabric that held them in place.
I can only pray the rest of the fabric hold until at least this winter is over!
I thought bad things were to happen in threes. Let hope mine is just a string of four and this badness can be put behind me.
I hope all of you are having great days - not breaking anything.. ...
