Git 'Er Done - Day Three

So, as I mentioned last week, this week will be "Git 'Er Done Week."  That means I'm going to tackle a lot of things I'm been meaning to do for a while.  They aren't glamorous, but sometimes you just gotta git 'er done.  


Another confession.  I don't know how to clean my sewing machine.  Correction.  I didn't know until I found THIS TUTORIAL from Dog Named Banjo and pinned it.


So I followed the tutorial step by step and guess what?

My machine sounds a LOT quieter and happier than I ever remember it sounding.  A couple of months ago when my mom was over she commented that my machine sounded bad.  I thought it just sounded like my machine.  Oops.  


Now I know what to do and I'll be doing it a lot more often.  I love my sewing machine and I promise to take really good care of her now.  I even apologized to her.


I also tried cleaning my microwave a new way.  My sister puts in a bowl of water with a little baking soda and lemon juice.  Then she throws it in for about 5 minutes.  It steams the microwave and makes the grime easy to clean off.  It seemed to work pretty well.  (I must confess that my husband actually cleaned it out.  If I don't disclose that he will be harassing me all week.)

Before:

Yeah, I know it looks more like something other than lemon juice.


Ah!  Better.


I love how you've all been commenting about what you've been getting done.  It's awesome!  Go us!  Can't wait to see it all at tomorrow link party!

Thanks for stopping by.
