Don't you love this cotton tape? I think it was made for me! You can order it here.
I brought my sewing machine in to get fixed yesterday. I really should name her...do you have a name for yours? Any suggestions? Maybe Sunshine...or Bitsy...or Ken (for Kenmore)? I naively thought they might fix it right there. Nope...since I took it back to Sears they have to ship it out for repairs, so it won't be back for a few weeks. I looked in the phone book for local repair places but I think for something like that you really should be referred, you know? Sigh. Well I have embroidery and fabric cutting to work on until Bitsy gets home. (That sounds good, right?)

Before that, I struggled through making a bag for my grandma, who I'm going to see this weekend. It was interesting using a half-working machine but I got it done. These are Lecien fabrics (except for the back) I got on sale from Fat Quarter Shop awhile ago.
I stopped at Home Depot this morning after taking the kids to school. I'm on the hunt for an outdoor sofa. I cannot find one anywhere! The only one I really liked was at Target, but my sister-in-law told me that she has it and they get electric shocks all the time from it. I sat in the one at Target twice and got shocks both times. What is up with that?? Anyway I picked up a few paint chips from HD's new Martha Stewart collection.
Ok, it's time to make another cup of coffee, cut some lilacs, do the laundry, clean the downstairs, then the bathrooms. See ya!
