I got my sewing mat from Australia!! Thank you so much Tazzie! I love the colours. Isn't blogging fun! Tazzie does such wonderful work -- visit her Etsy page!
Here is my sewing machine with my new sewing mat. One day soon I will have my featherweight up and running and ready to put on it! That is my goal before the November retreat. I have joined the featherweight Yahoo group and I think I am almost ready to do the tune up myself! The machine actually runs quite well but it really should have a little oil and lube. I just love the look of the sewing machine mat with the little featherweight sitting on it so nicely. But in the meantime my Pfaff is quite happy on my new mat. And it is so nice to know where that darn seam ripper is at all times - LOL
This is the view from the window at my sewing machine and computer. There are two large windows in the room. The computer is in front of one and the sewing machine in from of the other. As you can see the yard and garden are not that large and there is only a small piece of grass between the window and the flower bed which is mostly hostas.
The reason I am show you this is because two times this week I have looked up from the computer or sewing machine and there has been a small black bear walking along the grass!!! It is quite startling to see the bear. It looks like just a young bear - maybe 2 years old or so. Jenny gave the bear a good barking at from behind the closed door tonight. We have a small plum tree out behind the hedge and there are a few other fruit trees in the neighbourhood - so I guess he is busy looking to fatten up for the long winter (aren't we all!!)
And here is the final picture of the quilt for the new baby - Ty is the baby's name. I gave them the quilt last weekend, they really liked it. It will be a great wash and use quilt for the little guy.
Jim and I have been watching Season One of the Soprano's this week. We finished the last episode of Season One tonight before 7 pm -- so off Jim was sent to the local video store to find the first DVD of Season two. We never watched any of the episodes when they were on TV and we have been hearing so much about how it is such a good show that we felt we needed to check it out. I will have to blame Susan from Blackberry Creek for getting my interest in the show started.
We are really enjoying the show. Such a great way to watch TV. We are able to get about 4 episodes in a night, but it have really cut into my blogging time. And of course the windows..............we won't mention the windows - LOL
