Can I both whine and boast in one post? Or is that rude? Or do I care as it's my blog?
I did something really dumb today. I managed to sew through my own finger. Yeah, seriously the needle of my machine went through my index finger, stopped there too as the needle was in the down position when you take your foot off the pedal. Luckily it was across more then down, so no bone/nerve/muscle (maybe muscle) seems to have been affected. Don't ask how. I'm not 100% sure. Something along the lines of not paying attention, having a pin in backwards, and no sleep the night before. All I can say is lucky me.
Wanna know what else happened today? My breaks decided to stop working, or so the lights on the dash said. While I was driving. With Little Bit in the car. I was taking her too turoring, after waiting for 35 minutes in the frickin freezing cold for her bus, when these lights I'd never seen show up.
Pull into nearst parking lot. Thumb through the manual, can't find the symbols.
My dad calls, and is standing next to my brother. A conversation ensues. It is decided I can drive on. Nothing smells, no smoke, nothing feels different, breaks worked fine. On I go.
About 2 minutes later, brother calls.
Pull over NOW.
Apparently he ran it by one of the mechanics, its the breaks ( the round symbol with waves inside and brackets on either side). OK. Crap. I'm in a bus lane.
It is again decided it would be safer for me to go on to the next parking lot. OK well that would be Fabricland (now that would have been fun), but the next parking lot after that is tutoring so I go onto there. A tow truck is sent, I call mom to pick us up seeing as I have DH's Jeep keys. Since she was taking Little Bit anyways, reasons to come, it was no problem. She just came over after work and bought a new pair of shoes while Little Bit was in tutoring. Any excuse right?
So van, mostly likely dead, as it is not worth anything and fixing it is getting stupid.
So onto the bragging part, though the needle could be brag worthy as really, how many people manage that?
I forgot the camera, not that I can get good pictures with all the lights etc.
Block 2 came from FQS for Le Jardin. Tomorrow you know I'm cracking into it. Know what else came today? My very large 20"x20yds of Jenny Haskins Tearaway Stablizer, my favorite thing to use for applique. I'd ordered it for my late Christmas present, now its a belated birthday present. YAY!
So now I'm sooooo tired I'm heading to bed. Night all.
