Trying to get my mojo back.....

I have not touched needle or thread since my retreat and you would think that with all that motivation, I would be sewing up a storm.  What's my problem?  I've been at the hospital more days than I have been at home with my mother-in-law.  She is 91 and had a heart attack.  She is home now, but not doing all that well. 

On a different note, my husband came home this morning from the local flea market wtih this little find.

Well, as far as my sewing goes, not sure when I will get back to that, since this afternoon, I was sitting in Emergency for my husband who smashed his finger pretty good this week and things were getting worse.  It was pretty infected.    Tomorrow I will be in the hospital with my dad who is having carotid surgery and then again on Friday with my husband who is getting a stent. 

Calgon....take me away.  Maybe I should pack some sewing  for when Calgon takes me away.  Hope you are getting some sewing in. 


  1. Very interesting machine! Hope you get your mojo back!

  2. What a wonderful find! And what a great hubby for picking it up for you. You should have fun with that.

    Calgon may not be able to take you away but maybe I can.......wanna meet up in Paducah for a little getaway, say, ohhhhhh September??

  3. I love the little sewing machine. It would look so cute on a shelf in your sewing room.

  4. Ok, that's it ... I am going to the flea market with Mike from now on. I was there on Sunday and didn't see that lovely little machine. Of course, Mike probably had it by then.



I said I wouldn't......

I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
