yep, my sewing machine is dead, I took it to the shop yesterday and they told me that because of Obon (Japanese summer holiday) it is going to take A MONTH to repair WHAT? Obon only lasts 4 days so why on earth should it take a month...grumble, grumble

Not only that, the camera is broken too - well it takes photos but it is one of those digital ones with a screen on the back and no view finder and it is the screen that isn't working, now guess how long it will take to fix it, yes, that's right A MONTH, more grumbling.....

On the bright side this will force me to finish the projects I have been working on that don't involve sewing machines or cameras!

Right, I am off to put the new fabric in the shop, sorry for the grumpy post!


  1. My sympathies on your repair troubles!! I am very variable with my use of my sewing machine, but I would be quite upset if it was out of commission. And I would die without my camera! Although I HATE to use the viewscreen, so I always have one with the regular viewfinder! I hope you are able to find other ways to amuse yourself, although I will miss the photos on the blog:(

  2. I totally sympathise obviously not being a sewer I dont have a sewing machine but if somebody took my jewellers pliers away from me for a month I would be very upset:-(

    And the camera too!! A double whammy!! well i hope you manage to catch up on your other projects and the month flys by :-)


Thank you!
