Back to Embroidery

I hate to admit it but I have hardly had time to use the embroidery unit on my new machine. It is taking a little getting used to. Minor differences that can drive you crazy. Love the SE..great machine. Trouble is I am still stuck in D1 Time to get some projects going that need some embroidery so I can get truly used to the new one.

The weather has been so discouraging. It is like a rain forest out there. We had a dandy thunder storm last nite so that kept me up later than I wanted.

Our oldest granddaughter is away at camp. Wonder what she is thinking of that now she is there. She was all excited about it but then she was Wish I could say I envy her but I hated camping and I am not

Not much in the picture front..but I did take one of the last batch of kittens. Tippy is going in for her big operation as soon as possible. Sure hope I can find some good forever homes for the little ones. Anyone out there

Paint & Grandkids

Painting is something I used to enjoy but as the years go by I find it harder to get down or up to those darn spots that need Bring on the Grandchildren..yippee. The girls were thrilled when I asked them to help. At 11 & 12yrs. why not. They had a ball. The room is very small, just room enough for bunk beds a desk and dresser. We removed the furniture and odds and ends but the bunk beds had to stay. We had lots of laughs working around the bed but did manage to get the area behind the bed done. I could never have done it without them. Yesterday I went to Fabricland and found some fabric to make a Roman Shade for the little room. What luck I had. Next weeks project. I know, I know..that darn quilt is not finished. Oh As Bunny commented I should try and finish it before hubby

I have some embroidery to do for a friend so off to the sewing room. Have a Great Day!

Wet,Wet, Wet enough already!!!At this rate we will never get our hay in for the year. We only have a few horses. I feel for the farmers with so many animals in need come winter. Lets pray for some hot weather..soon!!

I took this picture of our dog Kally a few weeks ago. She is a sweet pup and a great companion.

Here is a picture of the quilt I have been working on. Played with some borders..and ended up taking them off (top & bottom ones)ordered more fabric that will hopefully look better. Really like how this is turning out. Nice look for hubby's truck. As usual Fuzzy is around when the camera comes

One more day of rain according to the TV..fingers crossed they are right.
