How could I be so stupid! I didn't measure the old one as we were convinced it was stretched so knew it would be off so went by the make and model number of the machine, which has so far only turned up two sellers, one I have a dispute with, the other oh-so lovely but stupid me ordered the wrong sodding belt. Urgh. I've now sent a really grovelling email to them asking if I could pretty please exchange it for one they think will fit my machine and given them the code we have now discovered on the old belt. I just hope they don't hold my stupidity against me.
And just for good side splitting laughs, J thinks he's permanently fixed the machine and it wasn't really the belt after all...I think if I don't laugh soon I'll cry. Then again he could be wrong...I sure hope he isn't as I'm itching to get something finished sewing wise, just not tonight.
My sincerest apologies to everyone who has been at the blunt end of my moaning, with any luck this will be the last you'll hear on the subject. Finger's crossed everybody!
Have any of you had such a head slapping moment of utter stupidity? Come on, share and share alike!
