Playing again!!!!

I spent nearly all day playing with my new sewing machine. I can't believe how nicely it works after my old one!!
The first thing I made was a cover for it. It came with a plastic cover which was a little disappointing but that's the only criticism I have. So, I decided to make a fabric cover to put over the plastic one purely because we have a dust problem here. The dust comes from a total inattention to housework! I admit it. When I moved in with Nick it was agreed that I'd vacuum while he dusted. Seems like both of us do neither as we are too busy doing 'important' stuff so the dust piles up!!!
While looking for excuses not to do any housework I came across some beauties on this page.
Not that I need any really!!!

Jane, thanks for the link... a great morning chuckle! Most of those quotes apply to me! Where's the pic of the new sewing machine cover?

Hi Jane, thanks for the cleaning humor. I don't like housework either and laundry, well it is non stop at my house...Have a great day!

Jane, dust is the protective covering that grows on things. You want to protect your things don't you?! Especially that new sewing machine. Congratulations on the new sewing machine! Enjoy your blog and your tatting.
