Quitting Cold Turkey
I have to quit sewing. A few days ago I was working on my white blouse (the one I need by the beginning of May) and my sewing machine worked perfectly. On Saturday morning, I packed it up to take to church for the biweekly sewing ministry. As I set it up, I noticed two small pieces of white plastic under the free arm. Uh-oh. I started sewing and heard a terrifying clunking noise. And if the clunking wasn't enough to worry me, as I sewed, the door to the bobbin compartment popped open every few minutes. Strange. The stitch looked fine, but I couldn't ignore the clunking. I went straight to the sewing machine dealer from the church. I won't have my machine for at least a week. I have to quit cold turkey. Well, at least I'll have time to get some housework done. Maybe.
