I’ve been wanting a sewing machine for quite a long time. The husband and I talked about having one brought from the States but it just didn’t seem practical. Then he found a good deal in Merkato. My machine has been humming along nicely and it’s pretty easy to use. There’s a lot of satisfaction in making something (like my bath mat for instance!) when you just can’t find it here or it costs a ridiculous amount of money.
Can I just say – I miss shopping! I have shopping dreams where I’m at some sort of mall and I’m finding everything I want. It’s silly. There’s no easy-button you can push here and get everything on your list. It’s irritating sometimes. But sometimes going ‘without’ isn’t so terrible. It’s good to hit the creative-button too.
