  • My daughter and I in the fabric store
  • I have to go to a wedding
  • What do you like best?
  • The turquoise, the shocking pink, or the coral?
  • What about black?
  • No black, done with black
  • Besides it's a wedding
  • OK. What about navy?
  • Yes I could do navy. I have navy shoes and a bag
  • You mean match? No you can't do that.
  • I like to match
  • Mom no. I mean it
  • So what am I going to wear?
  • How about grey?
  • Let's get those buttons. I can come back later.
  • Offline for the last week because I have been doing childcare for seven days
  • And helped my Texas bound son clean his place
  • Out where he lives there is a sign on the church
  • "Blessing of the surfboards Sunday"
  • Church a block away is selling ice cream cones every afternoon as a fund raiser for Cuba and Uganda
  • Good for instilling values
  • As in any more hitting and no ice cream all summer
  • Have made a few things but need a photographer over the age of 7
  • Got to wait for the weekend to do that
  • Got a Singer Rocketeer for $50 from a man who had it set up in his backyard on a table
  • Sounds so smooth
  • But needs a major cleaning
  • Read you can soak them in kerosene overnight in a bucket
  • Got a feeling I am not going to be doing that
  • Got it to run a old template buttonholer
  • Excited and want to do a post on that
  • Have so so many sewing projects in my head
  • Think I may make a few bags
  • My wallet is shot
  • Pretty excited about that
  • Let's face it 
  • My sewing is not on the edge
  • It's right in the middle
  • Now off to remind everyone about the church ice cream
