This and That

I certainly didn’t need another sewing machine, but when I found this one for $50, I couldn’t resist! My friend, Zenia, has one just like it that she loves. Now I know why! It reminds me a lot of my Juki.

Speaking of Zenia, she knew I needed another thread stand and surprised me with one! She also sent along this fantastic fabric. She’s the best!

We’ve been enjoying fires in the backyard. The other night, Daughter #2 and her fiancé made fried chicken for us. It was amazing!

My sister has the decorating touch. While she was here visiting, she helped with a few projects. Here is a before.

And after! She also styled my shelves for me. I’m not good at that.

We also painted the breakfast bar.

I got this fun game for my birthday. 😁

I saw this huge drum in Carefree. My sister and I sent a day there. I loved it!

There is a botanical garden in the center of town that is lovely. They have many specimens of crested cactus, like the one below.

Have a great day!

  5. I have that sewing machine too and do a lot of machine quilting on it. It is so quiet and will sew through thickness with ease. It is very much like the Juki.

    That is wonderful about the sewing machine. I sew on a Baby Lock and love it. I love the blue wall behind the tv and in the kitchen. That’s a pretty blue. I love how your newly decorated shelves look, your sister did great! Hugs,

  7. Congratulations on the new machine!
