Decision Made and Action Taken
I went to look at sewing machines today and bought a Janome Memory Craft Horizon 8200QC and a Horn Quilters Delight Mk 2 cabinet.
The machine will be here by the weekend and the cabinet will be around 28 days. That means that I have a little time to get my fabric sorted and all the other things organised. I also picked up a spool stand so that I can use a big spool of thread when I am sewing large projects.
As soon as they are here I will be taking reams of photo's.
I went to look at a house in Neath this afternoon, I am not happy. The Estate Agents website said that the house would go to auction if it was not sold prior to the auction date. The agent who was showing the house said, oh no the house is going to auction and no offers are being taken unless they are over the speculative value, which is more than £10,000 over the Zoopla valuation. Hmmm, I challenged her on the actual website details but she was clueless. I may go to the auction but feel that the house needs too much remedial work. 2 down pipes had been removed and rain water has been pouring down 2 walls and the damage is evident inside, 2 walls from bedroom ceiling to ground level need stripping back and replastering at the very least. Not to worry there are lots of houses out there for sale.
Reasons to be happy.
1. Glorious sunshine most of the day.
2. Walking with Ben roaming round my feet.
3. My new machine, on its way.
4. A quick stir fry for dinner was delicious.
5. I managed to buy some Michael Miller quilting cotton for just over £5 a metre.
I hope to spend some time in the garden tomorrow after gallivanting round south Wales all day today.
The new pills seem to be working well, I hope it lasts.
Francesca is coming back for the weekend in 2 weeks time, she will train to Neath and I will collect her there, it is only 25 minutes away at the most and you can park outside the station.
I am off to put the kettle on for tea.
