Welcome, December! It looks to be an interesting month. . . .
I'm doing a photo-a-day challenge with The Idea Room this month! I've never done one before, and this one looks fun and easy. My photos may be a little... odd... since part of December will be spent in the hospital with B. You can follow mine on instagram if you'd like. I hope you'll join in! Be sure to search #theidearoom to see all of the neat entries!
December 1: red and white
And then this happened. . . .
Of course, since the holidays are here, it's time for major appliances to break down. Isn't that how it works? It does for us! Last year, it was the oven the day after Thanksgiving. The year before, it was the washing machine right around Christmas. So this year, it was the dryer's turn!
The belt broke! Luckily, I was in the laundry room when it happened, or I'd hate to think of what could have happened! (fire?)
I watched a video on how to change the belt. Looked easy enough. I ordered the part from RepairClinic.com. By the way, those people, and the folks at Partselect.com, are pretty awesome. I've ordered from them several times (the oven... the washer... the fridge...) and they're always incredibly helpful and professional. HIGHLY recommend! Anyway. . . .
The video's verbal instructions, and the printed diagram, tell how to change the belt from BEHIND the dryer. But the video's demonstration, and the written instructions that came with the part, show how to replace the belt from the FRONT. uuuggghhhhh. My brain just couldn't compute.
And then this happened, too. . . .
So nothing too exciting to write about; that's all that's going on around here. I'm still sewing the felt birds whenever I get a chance. I'll have some to list in my shop tomorrow! 'Til then. . . . blessings!
