I'm moving funiture again to accomodate flat screen tv purchase other day and cleaning yet again.  It just doesn't end, someone would think I have the cleanest house but I so wish it were true.  I just hope I get it sorted out by thanksgiving.

Arent you just being greedy after all you can only use one at a time (well i can).

 

 

i have a little elf that joins me sewing once in a while.   i have 6 machines, soon to be 5,  i am giving one to my daughter.

  i like my designer so much, that i want to find a good used one for back up

 

Six did you say SIX machines how on earth do you find space to put your fabric.

Patti:

Sounds like the pump.  It is 11 years past warranty, so we have been lucky to have it last this long.  They will replace it tomorrow.   Or find out if it is something else.

    Pumps are a pain. We had to have ours replaced abt 5 years ago, it only lasted abt 8 or 9 years. The guy that replaced it said it was not a really good pump to begin with, so we had a better one put in and a control panel that keeps the pressure steady - that really helped when watering the lawn as the pressure does not go up and down like it did. Anyway, I hope they get yours fixed before Thanksgiving.

the closest innova dealer when i was looking  last, was in st. george, utah.

  Not so Gini, the Fabric Patch in Ephrata, WA is an Innova dealer.  (At least I think that would be closer to you.)  Check out their website.   I test drove one there last year and I really like the way they do their initial delivery, set-up and training.  The Innova is on my wish list too, but...sigh...  BTW, congrats on your new space!

Another gloomy day here. Yesterday was nice and now back to overcast, I don't like days like this. I'm going to head into town to get a few things to take to daughters for Thanksgiving. We are going to go to daughters and then Fri we are going to our son's. I'm getting gingerbread house kits for each house, so I hope we get a chance to get them done...should be fun. I pray that everyone traveling has safe travels and a blessed Thanksgiving!

Sorry Patti, they seem to have a way of going out at the very worst of times don't they.  Look at the bright side, at least you know it's not the well going dry.  That would definitely be worse!  Hope it's a quick and inexpensive fix.

As Spud said, with all this grey and gloom I am having problems getting myself up and motivated this morning...yikes it's almost 11:30...I really need to get dressed...LOL!

 Had our pump replaced this past summer. Was in 9 years, too. Ours is 400 feet down. Was about $400. to have it replaced. Our power lines go over it, so we have to have the power co. and the well co in sync to get the lines pulled over and the pump put in. There were all sort of vehicles in the cul de sac. And, as with everything else that goes on on our road, we had a gathering of neighbors giving their input. Sould have grilled hamburgers and a cooler full of beer.

 We got the best pump, too!  Things are cheaper in the South.

Finally, finally, finally! I got the labels for the grandkids quilts written on - it is still hard for me to write so it was quite an accomplishment! Now off to town to get a few things to take to Thanksgiving...

Sukochi,  How nice to put a face to your name.  You take a good picture.  I like your rural area.

 Thanks so much. We sure do love it here. Looks rural but only 8 miles to town. Of course, it is a small town.
