Better then a roller coaster

I was never brave when it came to amusement parks. The day they installed my first stair lift, I saw amusement park written all over it. Time goes by and you forget it is just a machine and could break at any time. I have been caught halfway down the stairs when a storm knocks out the power, but never considered other things that could happen. I do know now why the chair has a seat belt!

There is nothing like a quick stair descend to knock out all your depression! I don't know what I was thinking about when I slid onto the chair and clicked the button, but within seconds I was thinking I might not stop at the bottom and might end up flying through the bath and into the kitchen!

Those 2 little steal cables are suppose to be taught. They are what pulls you up the stairs and keeps you from sliding down. As the cables pull you up the stairs, they disappear into a steal box. At the third upper step the cables broke, sending me and the chair on a free slide. I hit the motor case at the bottom, bending it and throwing myself into the dinining room.

I figured I was safer back in the sewing room after my trip down the stairs so I managed to sew all but 8 of the needles cases together. Stuffed some pin cushions and laid a few out and tried out some embellishments.

I did manage to take a photo of the hill behind the house.

Holee, I'm thinking you did a tutorial about these wonderful little needlecases, but I'm having a hard time finding it. I think I've looked at all the entries up to this one. Is it still posted?

Hope you're not exhausted after your weekend of working on the house. Don't overdo...
