I Just Can't Believe it !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been interrupted by orders so it took me a little bit to get the 2nd toddler quilt finished for my grandson. But I finally did, & sent it off in the mail & sat back to wait for the kids to get them. I did not get a picture of it tho as I was in too much of a hurry & wanted to get it out that day. Well, they never got it!!?? I sent it priority & insured for the $50 that priority mail gives you free. Tracking shows that it got as far as California & then there is just a big void. I contacted the Post Office & filled out the form for missing mail, but it doesn't look good. According to the PO the package may have lost it's label. They think that because there is no logging in or out for the package after the last login in Stockton California. I really put my heart into those little quilts & I can't even tell you what I would like to say to the PO. It is just too gruesome. But there it is, nothing to do but wait. Thanks to God I did have a picture of one of them to send to the PO, & I hope they find them. If not, will I do it again?? Don't know.

While sewing the quilts I ran over a straight pin. I never run over pins as I do know better. I just didn't see it. I have a tiny little spot in my eye that is right in my central vision that is blank, from the ADM, so I just didn't see it. The needle hit the pin & jammed it down into the machine. The machine will only sew backwards now so it is in the shop. I hate to take my machines in, knitting or sewing. I am hoping for the best. I was thinking of buying a new machine anyway so bought a Brother 420. If the other one can be repaired I will keep it as a spare. I was planning on buying a more expensive machine than the 420 but had to get what I could now. I wanted it to be a Brother because all the sewing machine feet that I have fit on the Brother. & I didn't want to have to learn a new machine.
Happy Valentines Day!!
