The topic: Back in the grasshopper days

----------------------------------------------

One of the monthly catalogs I got from CostCo had a sewing machine with an attachment for the computer and it embroidered. I talked Brian into letting me buy it. I set it up, but never used it.Oh, I'd think about it, but it's in the extra room and I've got a desk type setup in there, but this machine gradually got pushed to the back of the desk and it's not easy to get to now.  As the years went by, I'd think about using it, but just never had the inclination. I've got an older model sewing machine in the living room that's in a cabinet that I do use on occasion (like patching Brian's Levi's). I've got a cedar chest my parents got me when I was a senior in high school stuffed with material.I've got a lot of big spools of thread I bought at Threadart.com. I've got the stuff to make nice things. 

But somewhere along the way I became sidetracked.

So, I decide I want to use my embroidery machine. Even if the reviews sucked. It's bought, it's paid for. 

I brought this up to Brian the other night and he said "well, why don't you bring it out here? You can move that chair", pointing to the cat chair in the family room, the one we bought just for the cats at Jerome's a few years back. The one covered in covers and blankets that I wash every month or so. 

I think about it. The next day I research a new/used sewing table. I don't want to spend more money on more furniture, furniture for which there is no place. I pass on the idea of setting it up on a permanent basis. But, what if I could do the same thing with it that I do with my Silhouette? Of course, a cart won't do, but what about a case for it, one I can just pull out when I want to use it? And set it up on one of the tables I use when I craft? I can adjust the height on those, it should work.

So, I look for cases. I found one made for my machine on Amazon. I asked Brian if I could get it (it wasn't real cheap) and he said "I guess". So, I got it. The reviews for it are better than for the machine. *lol* And it's huge. But it's a tote type case, so it's on rollers. And it sets nicely next to my Silhouette cart in the extra room. This will give me more room in the extra room; there's nothing wrong with that. I'll be working on this today.

Now, if only my foot would quit hurting.
