On to shop news, we have purchased a new embroidery machine, the old ones was definitely letting me know she had had enough. She was in for repairs in November and really didn't come back from the shop in much better shape, we were told at the time that we had demolished the power pack and that is was just too costly to repair on a machine that old and that we needed to start looking for a replacement. I know machines are inanimate objects, but I could not have done most of the Military items that I have available to my customers without this machine and she has served me well, so it is with a heavy heart that I had to make the decision to trade her in on a newer model, my husband very politely informed me why keep her if she isn't capable to doing what she was bought for so she will be leaving the sewing area in a few days time.
The new machine still has the same hoops plus more available so there will be some new additions to the shop as well as the tried and true favorites.
We are at the painting and finishing stages at the new house, we are a long ways from being totally complete but we are getting closer day by day, my son is finally coming home from deployment and is hoping to be on leave within the next few months so he has offered to help with trim and flooring, or to use his hefty muscles to get stuff moved over to the new place. I hate having him spend his little amount of leave helping us do the stupid stuff but he wants to help so we will have no choice but to take him up on his offer. Still no idea when but I am sure when he does come home there will be something for him to do.
Well have to sign off and go complete the rest of my paperwork including royalty report to the Air Force.
Have a wonderful Easter and a gorgeous spring :)
