So many threads accumulate in my work space, and get picked up on your socks and dragged all over the house, you find them in the most peculiar places !!! my vacuum cleaners are worked very hard trying to keep up with all of the bits of fluff and thread from waddings and loose threads from fabrics. I have had a few in the last few years all of which eventually gave up on me and quietly die !! well actually, they don't just quietly die - they always decide to when I am expecting a customer or relatives over !!
So off I trundle to Currys to buy myself a new one !!! The old one (actually not that old I only bought it in January !) is an upright, and I think it is probably just the belt that has gone, but I decided to also get a pull along one to hoover up my quilting area, as there are no belts and brushes that the thread can get tangled in, and it goes straight up the tube !! well that is my theory anyway if it is true or not !!! It is nice to have a spare too!
My youngest (10) is hoovering as I type being excited with the new toy, the novelty will certainly wear off there, I am pretty sure of that ! but I will take advantage (pocket money has already been mentioned for his "work" !!)
It has not been a good week so far (and it is only Tuesday) as I had accounts software issues yesterday too !! so if this is the way things are going for me this week, I had best get some quilting therapy and load another customer quilt. Two were picked up today, which I will post some photos of very soon, as they are very pretty quilts.
