Machine Down

As I mentioned yesterday, one of my sew machines is out of service. I didn't get a chance to drop it off at the shop today; and of course, the longer it takes me to get it in for repairs the longer I will be without it. I didn't get to drop it off this evening because when I came in from work I had to get right to work. I had to embroider some company logos for a client.

Here's my challenge. I don't like doing any kind of sewing for other people because I always see it as taking away quality sewing time for myself. However, it's the extra money I make sewing for others that affords me the opportunity to indulge myself in my craft(s). To complicate the issue more, everytime I splurge on a new machine or gadget, I always justify it by telling myself that it will help me to be a blessing to someone else. I know, I know, I am so twisted. - but I'm working through it all one seam at a time. LOL.

I still haven't completely reorganized my craft room, but I'm getting there.

I have all of my magazines in one place. like this rack because it's fairly compact and it holds about 225-250 magazines.

and look a clear surface.

And here are a few layouts of my grandchildren. They are much older now but sometimes it takes me a while to get around to scrapping their pictures. LOL

Caleb used to be such a cowboy. He's wearing snake skin boots.

Got sippy cup - ready to work.

Arianna is simple and cute on this page.

Meditation Monday

Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised. Psalm 113:1-3

This passage speaks for itself. We, His servants, are commanded (not advised) to praise His name. No matter how much others defile, misuse, take in vain, the name of the Lord - we must praise His name. Don't let the rocks have to cry out on your behalf, give His praise that's due his name.

I know what you mean about sewing for others. I'm in the midst of doing this right now and all I want to do is work on my trench coat! I'm waiting on a fabric order so I can do more sewing for profit this weekend. Then I have to sew my daughter's dress for her Winter Dance.

Great LOs. I'd promised myself that I would spend the rest of the year making stuff for me, but as always I fall for the orders, but justify it that it feeds my craft
