you would think i have been on a break. certainly not intended. but 5 posts in the last 3 months. bloody awful. the Olympics have made my English come out. good grief. and now. oh my goodness. i need-need-need to take a break. my machine has been delivered to the sewing repair shop. an all-time-record without a tune-up. there must be gawds-and-gawds of fluff inside. a few weeks apart can only be good for both of us. above is one-of-a-million pics taken of me and my sister. i have always liked this one. the styling is questionable. ya think. my Mom really did sew us pretty matching outfits. but these ensembles reek of thrifting. i would be the oldest so not the child with the arrow pointing at her. so taking a break. reading a few books. knitting some small projects. and checking out new stuff like. Lancaster Diamond Quilt Along. (i got the templates). Washi Dress Pattern. (love it). Ron Swanson Along. (yup i started this one). Betsy's Closet Stitch Along. (very cute but not right now). Quaker Ridge Shawlette Knit Along. (so want to). Silk Moon Crescent Shawlette. (casting off). A Tiny Tree Pattern. (hope to find the time). did i miss anything?
