    Default This is not a rant

    Sometimes we learn and sometimes we have to be taught. Sometimes things go smoothly, and sometimes there are bumps in the road. Sometimes I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Sometimes I don't know what I do know.

    So the technician returned this morning, as promised, to finish putting our new quilting frame together - actually the frame was already together but the support for the machine was missing some hardware. All goes well, it's hooked up, and the upgrade done on the computer, and now it's time to see it in action . . . and it isn't working right. Now, I'm just to the point to learn how to use this system . . . and now we have to wait for a new machine to be shipped.

    I'm glad I am an easy-going person. I am glad I don't know any curse words. I'm glad I really like the machine and my dealer . . . but I am really, really sad.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Sandy, I'm sorry you are having this 'bump in the road'. Maybe someone here can say a few curse words for you! You are all ready to try this new machine and now you have to wait. Not fair!

    I hate this for you. I know when I have something new I want to be able to use it sooner than later. I guess you will have to find something fun to do in the meantime. Barb

    Oh Sandy. How frustrating. But when all is said and done you'll be so happy you'll forget this part. Patience my dear!

    Oh Sandy. I could teach you a few curse words in french if you like. Patience is indeed a virtue. Sorry to hear about your trouble with the frame. Kick back, have a glass of wine or two or three....and then you laugh. What else can you do, right?

    What a bummer! No wonder you are sad and disappointed. Hopefully the new one comes in early and ready to go. Keep the faith, Sandy. You have such a positive outlook...another example of when life gives you lemons, you make lemondade. Take care, Friend.

    Sandy I am so sorry this has happened, it's the sort of thing I usually get. Seeing as how I feel like you are my sister, here's an offer for you. I've just bought the Avante HQ18, we picked it up last night, how would you like to come on over, have a coffee with me, help me set it up and we can both play.
