Yesterday when the sun came up it looked soooooooo neat, my husband said it was a sun column formed by ice crystals in the air. Whatever it was, it was beautiful and I had to share a picture with my online friends....
Topic of the week:
I have 5 sewing machines. The one I use all the time is my wonderful Viking. What else would a girl whose family is from Minnesota have??? I also have a serger that I absolutely HAD to have, and never use, My husbands grandma's little sewing machine, and two treadle machines. I really hope someday to use one of them. I've never gotten around to finding the time to work with that though. There is one other sewing machine, wait, two other sewing machines in my sewing room. They belong to my 13 year old daughter. One is an antique toy sewing machine that I got her on eBay years ago thinking that it would give me more time to sew if she had her own little (safe) machine. No such luck! I had to sit right with her and help because it was actually harder to use than my big machine. sigh, then a few years ago we got her a Janome for Christmas and she has been sewing ever since.
A post script for the cat lovers on the list- sweet Cassie caught a mouse yesterday also. Now I know that doesn't seem particularly impressive, but Cassie has been completely de-clawed all her life! Every spring and fall those pesky teeny critters attempt to come into this 100+ year old farmhouse and she catches them!
