"Great Intentions"

Well today I had great intentions to complete the list of things I had to do. But my intentions went out the window when I sat in front of my new Janome sewing machine. That was the end of me, all I did was tinker and play. I did get a bit of proper sewing done though. My last sewing machine had plenty of kms /miles behind it. One of my many jobs was to sew all of the customers home furnishing orders for a shop called "Biggie Best"and believe me there were a lot of orders. My little machine used to almost be glowing red hot. This job was at the time I split up from my ex-husband Paul, and it worked in perfectly with the kids. I could still participate in their in and out of school activities and then sew orders when they went to bed. I remember some nights being up until 2.00am sewing my little heart out. I guess we all do what we have to do - when we have to do it. I find sitting at a sewing machine and zooming along really relaxes me, I find it helps my brain solve all the problems of my world. I had a lot of history and memories stitched up in my old machine (which by the way got traded in), so now I will just have to start stitching up some new memories.
