Remember my post some time ago about my dirty little secret? I'm happy to say that I've made peace with my sewing machine. Perhaps it was just writing about it, perhaps I finally realized it's just a machine. Either way, here's a picture of my new best friend!
A friend asked if I could stitch a tape measure case for her like one I had done for an exchange almost a year ago now. While stitching it, I realized that on today's date it would be 1 year from a time I wasn't sure if my step-father was going to make it. Told by many doctors that even if he did pull through, he would be left with any number of health issues, he is alive and fully recovered. It's amazing to me at times the feelings and thoughts that a little scrap of linen and floss will bring about.
Like most of the country, the tempurature has plummeted to below freezing. I welcome the break from the unseasonably warm weather we had last week but have been worried about the effect on plants just blooming and my latest visitors:
Thanks so much for the comments on the French Heart bag and again to Su for her idea.
Hey Cari, thanks for stopping by, it's nice to see you.
Silver Thistle (I'm sorry to keep calling you that but can't find another name) - nope, I didn't really get it fixed, just figured out that the Yahoo ad was cauing the problem and decided it was worth the upgrade to get rid of it. LOL
