This week has been sort of aimless because I’ve sent both of my machines away to have a bit of a spa treatment. This is the first time in two-and-a-half years that my Juki TL-98P has been serviced. It’s not that I’m stingy with the facial peels, he just kept telling me that he doesn’t need to go. So I just kept sewing and sewing. Finally though, when Lou from Sewing Machine Warehouse came to pick up the TL-2200QVP for a small alteration (aka I broke a handle), he insisted he take my smaller machine with him as well. This is the first time I haven’t had a sewing machine in my house since June 2012—that is four years. I’ve had the shakes for the past two days. I keep drinking in the hopes that I’ll black out, but I’ve got my liver so well conditioned that it’s metabolising faster than I can skewer olives for my martinis!
