Week 8


I am so glad I have a sewing machine! And a new one, at that. It was in the shop all last week, timing adjustment. So I'm very happy to have it back. The good thing about that was that I got caught up on my scrapbooking.... I think sewing is my favorite right now!! I just love making something and looking at it and thinking, "hey, I did that!"
I was able to make a blanket and silkie for Cannon for his upcoming surgery. That made me very happy. A sense of accomplishment!
Thanks to Greg for the wonderful Christmas present! If you'd asked me 10 years ago what I wanted for Christmas, I never would have said a sewing machine!! Funny how things change, right?

Too cute! Are you all ready for tomorrow? Everything will be great! I've been itching to sew. I think I will go to Joanns today. I love all the cute spring fabric.

Those silkies are the best! Elsie LOVES hers. I'm sure it will help Cannon feel better.
