Yipeeee! Yahoo! My machine is finally home after 2 months! Whoopeeeeee
A friend even told me that I had become -OBSESSED- with the need to have my machine back.So she gave me a good tip - to think of it as a chance to do something different from what I had been doing. It was terrible , but I did pull off those gloves for my DH and the dog pillow and cases for my oldest son.
Then on a wonderful sewing group when I whined a member gave me another tip : she said that she had taken a machine to the shop for a friend of hers and they told her two weeks. When the two weeks came and went she said Anything can go wrong - so call and give them another week. After that go pick up your machine and even though they give you every story that is sad and will make you feel guilty -hoping you will feel too bad to call back.(worked on me) . When you go to pick it up and they say leave it another week- tell them that you are sorry that they have personal problems , but that you hired them to do a job for you and from not come through previously that you will take it to someone who will. (She said her friend did that and in a week her machine was fixed and returned back to her! I loved the way her friend was so calm and without all the drama -because I do not like confrontations.
Now with plan in head I had decided to give them until Tuesday - and when we went out today - I received a call on my cell phone to come pick the machine UP!!!!!!!!!!! Whoopeeee!!!!!!!!!! We made the 8 hour round trip and have just got home and it is dark so I need to finish chores and hop in bed to get some rest!
I thought this was so cute - where he embroidered Fixed ! Now that it is fixed - I am fixed too!
HO, HO, HO!
Many happy stitches come your way like the snow flakes that are falling down from heaven at our house.
