Just an update

No pictures today. Just a daily life update.

My walking continues to be difficult. This weekend my big advance was being able to spend about 5 minutes in Dollar Tree hanging onto a cart. I tend to love that store. And they had new school supplies. I love shopping for school supplies. There are always new, fun things at this time of year. I bought a new pencil case and a stack of 3 x 5 index cards with back and front covers, an elastic band and a small ring to keep them together. Not sure what I'll use either of them for.

The sewing machine went into the shop for a bit less than a week not long after my last blog post. That put an end to the FMQ roll I was on. I expected it to be in the shop for several weeks because the man who owns the dealership has serious family issues, but he got my machine out pretty quickly since what was wrong was very minor and basically it needed a tune up. I have threaded it and tried it out in regular stitching, but that is all.

What I have been working on is Bloom. It is going to be finished pretty soon. I've been doing hand embroidery on it. It now looks like something from a few feet away, and still looks pretty good close up. I'll be taking photos and posting about it when it gets a bit further along.

Take care all.

  3. Sorry to hear you're having problems walking. What's that all about, and can you fix it fast? You are way to young to be so slowed down. Love your site, makes me smile. Happy Summer, Montana Sue
