Get up at 4:30 a.m., because you have a ton of veils to make that customers want for Holy Week.
Sew until 1:00 p.m., at which time your grandmother's 50+ year old Singer starts to make...that noise.
Hold your breath as you attempt to coerce the jammed stitch selector back into place.
Lose your breath when the machine starts making those birds nest thingies that it makes when it does that jammed stitch selector thing.
Finally resign yourself to the fact that you may have to buy one of those plasticky new-fangled computer sewing machines that throws error codes like your overpriced front load washer does when it should be occupying itself with more important activities like washing your clothes.
Wait until your husband comes home and then drive a blasted hour into town.
Buy plasticky machine for no small amount of money.
Be amazed at how light the dern thing is.
Bring it home. Place grandma's 50+ year old Singer on the floor and put new fangled plasticky machine in its place.
Read the eminently confusing "quick start" guide.
Be made very leery by the fact that every part of the thing feels like it will snap in half if you look at it funny.
Once you are pretty darn sure that you have it threaded/bobbined, etc. correctly....start to sew.
Be frustrated as heck at the fact that it makes stupid birds nest things just like grandma's 50+ year old Singer does when it is being cranky...
Try to adjust things.
Observe error code that it is flashing at you.
Realize that if you sit down and spend an hour reading the manual, it will probably work just fine.
Turn new fangled machine OFF, and place it on the floor. Return grandma's 50+ year old machine back where it belongs.
Be delighted at the weight of its metal casing and gears. Know that if you look at it sideways, it will not snap in half, although it may toss you a bird's nest or two just to keep you in your place.
Have husband fiddle with stitch selector a bit.
Hold your breath and begin sewing a perfect line of beautiful stitches.
Know that grandma is probably up there smiling.
