I Will Remember You Always....Now RIP

Last night, I am so sad to announce,
I had to pronounce
the foot pedal to my sewing machine
(sniff, sniff.....please pass the tissues.....sniff).

I tried reviving the poor thing by oiling it and trying to dust it out.
It didn't seem to help

Then I took more drastic measures.

I tried reviving the poor pedal by trying to talk it into staying alive
(a few swear words here and there)

I tried CPR
(banging it on the table a few times)

and then I even tried the Heimlich on it
(pounding the crap of the poor thing with my foot)

but, even with all of my life saving techniques

......the pedal just couldn't be revived.

So my dear friend and constant companion


I will always remember the joy you gave me in sewing

the many aprons, hot pads, tote bags, pillows, blankets

and the occasional mending of clothes.

I will remember the happy times we had being creative together.

Thank you for the memories my dear friend.

Under any other conditions I would be at a total loss
and quite frankly,
really pissed off
my sweet, smart and always thinking

bought this old sewing machine last year at a garage sale for $20.00
thinking I could use it to teach the kids to sew on.
It's been sitting in the garage for almost a year now
and when Earl brought it in the house last night

without much hope of it working
was surprised and delighted
to see that it works like a charm!

So I am not going to be sad today
(maybe a little annoyed and frustrated)
but, not sad or mad
because my dear friend
I'm sorry to say
that you have been

and today
this old and hopefully reliable new friend
will bring me as many wonderful memories as you did.
