Welcome January

Well, we seem to be past the worst of the Snows that we had here in Spokane...Thank Goodness!

Here is a picture of poor Gary shoveling snow off the roof of our home...I was inside double checking all the "clauses" in our insurance policy to see if "sliding off roof & breaking body parts" is covered! lol!

So, am I the only goofy person who loves knitted/crocheted socks & booties???? My mom sent me these booties that are crocheted from 3 Granny Squares & 1 larger double crochet square...I think they are cute & yes I wear them, have them on right now!

Well yesterday after a moderate work out at the gym, I rewarded myself with some "Thrift Shop Retail Therapy" and look what I found.... books, vintage canning jars & lids & yep, yet another sewing machine....I paid $7.50 for this machine....I am starting, nay, I HAVE run out of places to put all these machines,...might have to try & talk hubby dearest into building me a little(or not so little) guest/sewing cottage so I can put all my sewing goodies out in & on display! lol!

Well, as for the weather, other than being bloody cold & horribly windy, it has been tolerable...I am now looking forward to some Spring/Summer of which is a Sisters on the Fly Camping/shopping weekend in June! Wahoo! There are 17 of us so far and what a great group of ladies to camp with. It will be fun to re-unite with the "sisters" and our vintage trailers. I just hope I can get "Gracie Girl" up & ready for her debut!
If you click on the pics you'll get a better look and as always, thanx for dropping by...

  1. What a great shopping trip........the sewing machine is a fantastic find......I can see you sewing up a cute apron using it. I remember both my mother and my grandmother sewing on similar machines. My grandmother made the cutest kitchen curtains from unbleached muslin and pink rick rack - without a pattern, of course. I'm glad you are finally having better weather.




I love hearing from you....
