Back to the plant sale! Several of the members had brought their seedlings & dug from their gardens to produce a wonderful sale. Here are some photos from that 1st annual sale at the T.A. MacDonald Hall in Bay Du Vin.
This Saturday a few of us are going into town to the Miramichi Garden Clubs plant sale, oh the thrill of the find for us! Last year that is how I began the Anniversary Garden at the Hardwicke House.
Pet - Cat Report
How can this sweet cat be such a brat in the mornings wee hours?!
Talking about stitching...I had to send my sewing machine in for repairs as it was not working well. I received the call back from Joel the technician...I've worn the metal feed dogs down & the throat plate needs to be replaced also!
Yes, that machine has been my work horse machine since I first purchased it at the CQA show in 2008, in Newfoundland. It's been the best machine I've ever had & I'm glad that parts are still available for it. It does everything I need it to do, except cut the thread after stitching.
Yes organization is at the top of all my lists these days. I noticed that Bill placed his jeans in my sewing room for repair too. It's on my list! lol
I used a nautical charm pack & made hour glass squares. I'm not sure what to do with this piece, I'm leaning towards a bolster pillow cover or a pillow cover, or a cat mat quilt, or tabletopper...so many ideas. But for now the 5" squares have been made into finished 3 1/2" hourglasses.
Yes this project will help to keep me organized with some of my sewing things!
With all of the construction & decisions, I need some calm, some 60 beats a minute & that is my sewing. Sewing with the machine or sewing by hand, it has a calming effect on me...that is till my Fitbit tells me to 'move' take another 250 steps. Yes, wearing the Fitbit is a pain but a great reminder for me to keep moving!
As my Irish Grandma Haynes would often tell me, 'Use it or lose it Duck'. She was a mover, specially after her hip replacement! lol Oh the people I miss in my life but I'm so glad I had them & now their memories are in my heart, making me smile at the thought of them. :-)
Thank you for popping in for a visit & come back on the weekend for the Reno Report on the Hardwicke House.
Remember Change = Chaos...I often find me, myself, & I, reminding each other that this will be good! lol
Thought for this week.
Remember, you are too blessed to be stressed!
