Hubby got a new toy, too. So far, he is enjoying retirement with his new lawnmower. Cute little Butterbean is always looking for a ride.... the dachshunds....not so much.

I bought this sewing machine from a seller on Craigslist this week for $30. From time to time, my daughter will say that she wishes she owned a sewing machine. Now she has one!! It sews... I need to sit down with the manuals and figure out how to make it sew 'good'.
I've been working on this baby quilt for a friend from work. It will probably be quilted on my regular sewing machine... unless I get really brave!
Isn't this cute?? It's a vintage pillowcase....colors perfect....fabric still stiff....and it has a Sears and Roebuck tag on the inside. I have no idea why I thought I 'had' to buy it.... maybe there will be a little girl in the family one day, who will want it. ;-)
The colors are poor in this pic, but I wanted to show you my vintage linen display. I bought a painted crib rail and plan to hang this on a wall in the sewing room. People who don't embroider don't usually realize the hours of pleasure that were put into these pretty pieces. And I am thrilled to death to snatch them up at yard sales and thrift stores.
So that's about it for me.... it's off to work for me this afternoon. I"m still working 2 days a week, but can definitely see a light shining in the tunnel.... I am hoping to cut back at least one more day very soon! I am trying my best to work my way into full retirement. :))))
