I broke my new sewing machine. Seriously. The needle pierced the plastic bobbin case and it won't turn. I cried harder than I have in a long time. Sweet Louie said it must be defective and is exchanging it today. (I told you I cried hard.) I also cut a slice into my finger that is prohibiting me from knitting or crocheting. Sigh . . .

In better news, I'm in full on wedding mode and actually feel like I'm accomplishing a few things. I looked to see if I had any pictures of weddingy goodness to share and only found this:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

That would be my dress in the middle and the bridesmaid dress I choose on the right. The picture is crappy but it's chocolate brown. I need to get caught up on my pictures so I have more to share.

In other pink & brown news, we are going to have the best swap EVER. Here is updated list of participants:

Heidi (Spiritual Knitter)
Laura - please send me your email or blog, I couldn't find you!

WOW! Pink and brown sure is popular! :) I'm very excited for this swap. There's still time to sign up!

Well I'm off for the weekend. I have big plans to get organized (um yeah) and perhaps have a new sewing machine. (sob)

Oh ((((Rebecca))))! I am so sorry to hear about the machine woes already. BTW, your links for "angie" and for "heather" both lead to Norththreads.

LOVE the dress! I married my daughter and son off the past two summers so I know how much work it is.

Could you let me know about the brown and pink swap-I may be interested.

I think that I would puke if I broke my sewing machine like that! How horrible for you! I feel your pain & hope that the situation will be rectified soon!

Your dress is beautiful! I really like the brown bridesmaid’s dresses too. I would never have even thought of brown, hmmm. But then we got married in S. Florida in Aug. so not very practical for us anyway. I will be looking forward to seeing more of you pictures.

Oh I have been resisting the Pink & Brown swap since I saw it on Mama & Jack, but like a dog to a pile of something smelly to roll in I can’t resist!!! Can I please join in?

Evil sewing machine! I hope the new one is better. I just got back from Del Boca Vista(Daytona), where the thrifting is swell; I'll be posting about it soon.

Oh, I so want to join in on this swap. But, Blogger has been naughty and not let me post a comment or get comments on my blog either. I know I am a day late - but Blogger was bad, very bad. Am I too late??? If I am, t hat's okay. Wahhh! ;o)
