The Best Laid Plans

Well, the best laid plans...:( I was planning to post a recipe for Tasty Tuesday but had a Ladies Craft Day at our church so hustled off to do that. Took a break mid-day to visit my Chiropractor; I hadn't visited him since my fall the end of September. So he got me all fixed up and I went back to the craft thing for a couple more hours. By the time I got home I was really feeling the effects of my Chiropractor!

Something is wrong with my 15 year old but rarely used Viking sewing machine as it likes to blow fuses. I was plugged into a surge strip but blew a secondary fuse anyway so that was the end of my sewing. I didn't even finish one Thanksgiving napkin:( I had to call the sewing machine store in Portland to have them send me some more fuses to the tune of $27! I am thinking I might be ready for a new sewing machine but because I don't sew a lot I don't really need a fancy, expensive machine. I have my eye on the Janome 3000...

This machine is not digital; it's manual so I won't have the issues with the fuses.  I also like this machine because it has a one-step buttonhole just in case I ever need one:) I also like the fact that you can sew through several layers of thick fabric. Since I do craft projects that could come in handy! This machine is $349 at Amazon with free shipping and is on my Christmas list so if you have  any experience with this machine, be sure to let me know before Hubby buys it! 

By the time I got home I was done in so postponed Tasty Tuesday till Thursday!  I will see you tomorrow with a tasty recipe!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. My mother had one sewing machine that lasted nicely past forty years or so. I think one of my cousins has it now.

    About the only sewing I know is how to do a button, which occasionally needs to be done, but that's by hand.

  2. Hello there.
    Hope you feel better. Thanks for sharing. Just making a short pit stop from the A-Z Road Trip!

  3. I think you can't really go wrong with Janome. It's a solid machine!! :)
